Sylvanus Urban

Sylvanus Urban is a digital and print media group based in Toronto, Canada.

Seamlessly integrated written and visual content coupled with shoppable pages.

London, 1731. Edward Cave created the first general-interest “magazine” in the modern sense: The Gentleman’s Magazine. Not only a printer, editor and publisher Cave contributed pieces to the Magazine under the pen name of Sylvanus Urban.

A pen name can be a creator’s best friend. An alias can be fun; liberating artists and distancing themselves from previous works. Allowing all of us at Sylvanus Urban to quietly pursue our original artistic vision.

Sylvanus Urban offers extensive options for cross media communication in traditional, digital, social media and events industries to provide a 360 degree media integration.

Sylvanus Urban is independently owned – allowing us full control over the story, from features to photoshoots. Working closely with a small team allows us to be nimble. Maintaining this extreme flexibility allows us to create custom content with immediacy and relevance.
