About Us | Acro Media Inc.
Rockin' the Web for 16 Years. We're Acro Media

We aren’t that special, really...

Doesn’t every agency claim that they’re special? What possible claims could we make that you haven’t heard before from others?

In truth, we’d rather listen to what you have to say, and then talk about your business goals. That’s what matters.

Over the last 15 years we’ve accomplished a lot from our offices in beautiful Kelowna, B.C.— the city fondly referred to as “Silicon North”. We’ve grown our business of young, talented, and fun-loving experts into a big agency culture with the heart of a small town. Our team’s skill in design, web development, and digital marketing has allowed us to “keep it in the family”, creating strategy and content completely in-house and lending a unique hands-on knowledge of our clients to marketing initiatives that secure results. Curious about how your business might benefit? Take a peek at the services we offer to learn more.
