Resolute in Action. Bold in Manner.

Ryan discovered his business sense and creativity during his childhood. He later refined his business acumen at the University of Saskatchewan at the College of Commerce. His early marketing days were spent applying his marketing talents in a not-for-profit setting.

Seeking to advance his career in the media industry, he relocated to Calgary and co-founded William Joseph Communications. His ambition was to create an advertising agency that wielded smart strategy as a foundation for innovative and on-the-mark creative. From small beginnings, the agency grew to house a diverse team of industry experts. Ryan is passionate about continuing to grow William Joseph and forming enduring client relationships.

Accounts Team

As members of the accounts team, we coordinate solutions to your marketing challenges. We are representatives who ensure the directives of our clients are understood throughout the process. With a strong grasp of your business, we coordinate the talents of our creative and digital teams to produce powerful marketing that empowers your organization.

Creative Team

Our team turns crafty strategy into impactful marketing. It’s more than pretty pictures; it is total engagement with your target audience. We bring your brand to life and tell your company’s story over a variety of mediums. Your brand is more than a business card, and our creative team has the experience and imagination to tell your story in any environment. Creating something unique, striking, and commanding is a formidable challenge, but success is only as satisfying as the struggle.

Strategy Team

Strategy is never a shot in the dark. Through thoughtful planning, research, and insight, great marketing illuminates the needs of a target market and undertakes a coordinated effort to provoke an emotionally driven action. Our strategy team is skilled at analyzing and clarifying the needs of your market and building powerful strategies that connect you with your audience and grow your organization.

The WJ Bocce League

Nothing builds a great team quite like a little bit of competition mixed with a lot of socializing. From the moment the snow is gone, our offices engage in a rather heated, season-long bocce ball league, complete with skill, determination, and a gentle amount of smack talk. With mixed teams across all of our departments, account managers and art directors go head-to-head against strategists and copywriters in a battle to see who is the champion of lunch-hour sports. In all seriousness, nothing makes for a better lunch break quite like fresh air, gentle exercise and socializing.  The bocce league is a great way to stretch our legs, clear our heads, and come back to the office a little more refreshed. Follow us on social media to keep up with the action and cheer on your favourite teams!

Speaking of competition: ever wonder how many seasons Full House was on the air? What about the population of Toronto? Or how many albums Celine Dion put out? Chances are our team has had a disagreement about it and settled it with a coin-friendly bet. It’s a trivial thing, it’s a trivia thing, and if you ever want to join in, just stop by the office. By the way, Celine Dion has put out 11 English-language and 14 French-language albums, just so you know.

Theme Music Days

With the nature of our work, mixed with the rapid-pace of our office, it can get a little stressful sometimes. That’s when our office-DJs take over. While our creative office is hammering out some gorgeous work for our clients, they are also curating the perfect themed mix to keep the office moving. From 90’s hip-hop to the quintessential dad-rock, our themed music days keep the office happy.
