Our values

Canela is a team of people dedicated to providing excellent communications campaigns for brands whose products and services are driving a positive change in our daily lives.

Present in Barcelona, Lisbon and Madrid and with over fourteen years’ experience Canela has regularly received Industry Awards and recognition such as Best Agency 2019, Best Place to Work Finalist 2020 and Fastest Growing Agency 2019 as well as campaign-specific awards.

Canela is organised into three departments: Business to Business, Consumer Technology and Lifestyle. We also offer Digital and Design services.

What really sets us apart

We have led the communications campaigns for household names such as Lenovo, Motorola, Sony and Worten and have launched brands in Spain & Portugal such as e-commerce giant Rakuten, mobility pioneers Cooltra and job search engine Glassdoor.

What really sets us apart is that we like to work with clients that are changing our way of consuming such as Babbel, Evaneos and Tapp Water. We have a broad experience of championing NGOs both national and international such as Sonrisas de Bombay, Tree-Nation and Fundación Exit.

We put our team members first

We are a company that puts our team members first, and in a sector known for its high rate of turnover, we have an above average employee retention rate. We believe in investing in people and their professional development. Canela team members have been to San Francisco, London and Frankfurt for training and also receive regular customized in-house training sessions.

As an independent owner-managed agency we form part of international networks of like-minded agencies including Brands2Life Global and Convoy with whom we share best practice, training sessions and clients.
