We areTOQUE.

TOQUE™ is a Magazine + Creative Studio
Products + Projects: We're the creators behind Toque Magazine™
& we work with clients to design brand & creative solutions.


Repeat after us: Print is not dead. Toque Magazine™ is our boutique print & online publication. Printed quarterly (and proudly locally on sumptuous 80lb post-consumer recycled North American sheets), ‘Toque Magazine' imagines, executes and broadcasts exciting local stories from across the ever-emerging ‘corridor’ that spans Wellington County, Waterloo Region, and surrounding communities. In the not-too-distant-future, all-day two-way GO transit will connect our broader region geographically. What ‘Toque Magazine' does is connect it communally. The inaugural issue of ‘Toque Magazine’ is here!

Who we are.

What is that feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specs dispersing? It's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.– Jack Kerouac, On The Road
