Agency

We are an independent agency with a deep skill set, big ideas, lots of heart and a global reputation.

Digital-first Design™

Made in
Montréal

We exist at the intersection of design thinking and technical know-how. As a digital-first design agency with off-the-charts dev skills, Locomotive® is an uncommon kind of studio. We're a small, nimble team, and we've been punching above our weight for more than a decade.

Manifesto

©2022

Our mission is to help brands build a future where design and code are integral to their success, and where their digital presence becomes a digital destination. To do this, we provide an environment in which our team can explore the limits of their creativity using innovative technologies and the power of empathy to build something unique, stunning, resonant and meaningful.

We make it all happen using our own brand of Triforce. That’s when operations, design and development come together seamlessly to deliver products that look good, work great and deliver results. It’s been that way since our three founders—an ops guy, a designer and a dev—started the agency back in 2008. With us, you’re not in the dark, you’re in on the fun. Together, we can create work that is distinctive, divergent and competitive in a digital landscape forever in flux.
