BRAND STRATEGIST & WRITER
Darren has emerged as the invisible force behind compelling brands within Canada and the US. That said, he’s not the kind of guy who wastes your time (or his) with a beaker of happy talk. He has helped companies create market separation by implementing strategies that rely heavily on telling and living a story that actually matters to customers.
In his opinion – the power being on-message (powerful words combined with the right visuals) is fueled by three ‘must haves’ – clarity, relevance and a company CEO who is driven to be ‘anything but average’.
Kris is the eye behind every script and story captured on video. With more than 18 years of video, motion graphics and animation experience he has directed and created video for a variety of national clients including, Moosehead, MMA and Ducks Unlimited.
Kris refuses to let equipment or budget stand in the way of over delivering – although he does have a soft spot for the latest gear. As a visual story teller he is well versed in 3D imagery and CGI, Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects.
In every sense, she’s a student of visual communication and problem solver.
Beyond Taylor’s meticulous ‘get it done’ mindset lives a passion for learning that separates her from most. When you need a solution, Taylor’s the one with the spark in her eye that says “I’ll figure it out”. That said, when the whistle blows at 5pm – perhaps her most striking natural attribute is an unspoken determination to do whatever it takes to hit a client deadline.
Behind that stoic face of code, lives a heart of gold.
