HTC was founded in 1982 as a marketing and design firm and, in no time, we established ourselves as a Canadian leader excelling in graphic design, promotional campaigns and brand identity programs.
In 1994 we saw an exciting opportunity to break new ground with the emerging possibilities of the Internet. We observed a formidable gap to fill between real-world design and real-time technology and we decided to face that challenge head-on: designing and building Canada's very first fully transactional e-commerce website for Reader's Digest in 1996.
Quickly, we realized our clients needed a one-stop shop to meet all their marketing needs, on the Web and beyond. So that's what we became, and we've lead the way ever since.
