PARTNER / CREATIVE DIRECTOR

His philosophy with respect to strategy & visual design is simple…

Ryan is a national award winning Art Director who has helped clients stand head and shoulders above their competitors when it comes to creating a visual identity and story that sticks in the hearts and minds of customers.

PARTNER, BRAND STRATEGIST

Consider him your GPS for messaging and strategy.

Darren has emerged as the invisible force behind compelling brands. That said, he’s not the kind of guy who wastes your time (or his) with a beaker of happy talk. You will experience a level of clarity about your business and your brand you never felt before, just don’t always expect to hear what you want to hear.

emilie squires

GRAPHIC DESIGNER /
STUDIO MANAGER

In every sense, she’s a student of the visual arts. Beyond Emilie’s soft spoken exterior lives a passion for learning that makes her stand apart from her peers. When you need something done, Em’s the one with the spark in her eye that says “I’ll figure it out”. But at the end of the day – she’s happiest when she lets herself get lost in a world of creative thought.

CONTENT STRATEGIST /
CREATIVE WRITER

Blogger, essayist, novelist, and ad man, Gareth has been in the marketing communications game since he stumbled into a major ad agency back in the early 2000s. Since then, he’s come up with countless campaigns for clients of all shapes and sizes. Sharp on ideas and wordy as all heck, his real knack is for making strange connections that translate to evocative creative.

GRAPHIC DESIGNER /
ILLUSTRATOR

When it comes to 21st century design tools, Melana has a mastery of pretty much all of them. But push her and she’d pick a finely tuned graphite tube wrapped in natural wood fibres every time. Sometimes, the old ways are the best. Artistic and keenly creative, there’s no one we’d pick over Melana for illustration, logo design, and all- round graphic awesomeness.
