Dave Massicotte, a digital art veteran, and Miriam Bard-Dumont, an expert in communications, founded Noctura in August 2017. Combining a high level of strategic insight with a remarkable capacity to deliver, it did not take time for the studio to make its mark into Quebec’s techno-creative ecosystem.
Noctura brings together the skills and experience acquired within the greatest multimedia studios, with the agility of a smaller agency. It’s a creative, fresh, and accessible team.
Create wonder. Awake senses. Surprise.
As Alexandre C. Clarke said in his third law, “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”.
What is important for us
The studio is constantly looking for new possibilities to think outside the box. Noctura takes a bold approach in imagining immersive experiences and using technology.
Each team member brings a unique flavour to Noctura’s projects. Every point of view feeds creation. With passion and trust, the greatest things can be achieved.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand”. Einstein said it.
