This Post Is My ‘About’ Page

JIM JAN 2016Jim Murray (that’s me) is owner and creative director of Onwords & Upwords Inc., a Toronto Ontario based creative consultancy.

O&U provides strategic focus, concepts, copywriting & editing, art direction and production in all on and offline media for SMEs and funded startups wherever they may be.

Jim has more than two decades of highly decorated ad agency experience and an equal amount of experience with direct clients. He is as conversant with the B to C market as he is with a wide range of B to B verticals. He has helped build business for more than 50 recognized national brands (including Procter & Gamble , Hunt Wesson and Mars brands) and more than 100 small businesses and startups.

Jim’s primary interest is in being able to provide small business with agency level strategic and creative services at affordable rates.

To that end, O&U is currently managing communications for, among other things:  RCK Sinks in Connecticut, Robert Wright’s Online Sales Management Program, Principles of Selling in Stockholm, Peel Scrap Metal Recycling and the Peel MetalMart In Toronto.

For larger projects, Jim is also the Writer component of marketing consortium that includes designer & online marketer Rahul Pereira and Art Director, John McLachlan. With our combined strategic, creative and production skill sets, we are a team that can rival any blue chip agency or designco on virtually any level level.

This group also offers collective and individual services to marketing and management consultants.

Finally, Jim is prolific blogger who has authored more than 800 editorial posts.

The review column he wrote from 1998 to 2009, The Couch Potato Chronicles, attracted a reader base of close to 7000 on a weekly basis.

His blogging interests range from marketing and communication to sports and entertainment. He is one of the original LinkedIn Pulse invitees, and has managed his own WordPress blog for the past decade. In the absence of any real growth potential on LinkedIn, he is now working to build a whole new following on the publishing platform at

Jim lives and works in Toronto with his wife, Heather. His daughter Star is a soon to be published novelist and his son Dan is a professional bakery manager for Cobs Bread.
