Great stories grab hold of you and won’t let go. They make your synapses fire in a million directions and your heart beat out your chest. They start from simple human truths and have the power to connect the world. Calder Bateman tells stories.

The way people communicate has changed a lot in the 22 years we’ve been around. But no matter the medium, the best results come from the best stories. Stories creatively told in just the right places. Deserving of the front page. Demanding to be shared. We think that’s pretty interesting.




HALIFAX, Nova Scotia

Napkin Inc. is a boutique design firm located in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We define ourselves as an advertising, public relations and creative brokerage. The three core principals of our company are simple; passion is paramount, collaboration inspires greatness and design can change the world. We are a company intent on being a part of the solution.

We are a young firm but we quickly grew accustomed to dealing with complicated topics and subject matter; having worked with Aquaculture and Wind Farms we understand that messages must be turned over again and again and again, until they are ‘right.’ The approach we take with our work is innovative – we carry out vigorous discovery with our clients in order to truly understand their business and their brand. This allows us to build strategies for them that achieve their goals, whatever they may be.

Napkin has been described by our clients as a ‘nimble’ creative team – we keep our size small in order to provide special attention to our clients, truly understand them and develop strategies that help them build campaigns that work. We strive to make working with us a holistic advertising experience defined by craft, care and collaboration.
We sincerely feel we are working for a new paradigm of advertising and creative development. We are young, hungry, passionate and innovative.
