Canvas Worldwide

Named “Most Innovative Agency” by Campaign US, Canvas Worldwide is an independent media agency that provides ingenious solutions for brands looking to challenge the status quo. And as a mission-based agency, our rallying cry, Make Yourself Uncomfortable, is our team philosophy to push outside our comfort zones to solve problems in new ways – because there can be no greatness without enduring a bit of discomfort.

Of course, it’s not all pushing ourselves to the limit. Canvas is also singularly focused on creating the best workplace experience for employees. For instance, we outpace the industry on diversity and inclusion AND have held more than 150 virtual events over the last year to keep our team united (from comedy shows and meditation sessions to happy hours and professional development workshops). So, if you’re bold enough to Make Yourself Uncomfortable… then we want YOU to come work for the most innovative agency in the country!
