OUR NERDS

Our epic A Nerd's World head office Nerf war that you’re about to see in this video is probably a little bit more intense then what you’re use to. And my god is it hilarious!!!

A Nerd’s World opened four years ago with the dream of bringing honesty to the world of web development. Today, we are North America’s most creative web development company and the world’s first walk-in boutique agency. From our sometimes eclectic attire to the throwback design of our Bathurst Street storefront, it’s clear we’re not your regular, stuffy Web 2.0 guys.

We may be experts, but we’re far from what you would expect and are definitely not your standard "suit and tie" team. We are however nerds who breathe creativity into every project that comes our way. Hands on with every client, working tirelessly to bring you the quick and proven results you deserve. From web development and SEO, graphic design, to brand building, logo design, and headshot photography, come witness the action at A Nerd’s World in downtown Toronto.
