Let's Make something.
Over my career I have worked at some of Canada's best design shops, advertising agencies and digital agencies. With all this varied experience I've picked up an absolute devotion to design, craft and the pursuit of unorthodox ideas. And because much of my career was spent in a smaller market with tiny budgets, I am quite at home with the DIY hustle. All of this experience is turning out to be quite useful in the current industry climate. When I'm not making ads, I'm honing my skills as an illustrator and a painter.
I've been recognized at Cannes, D&AD, One Show & Communication Arts as well as almost every National show in Canada. And most recently, I helped take an agency that was virtually unrecognized creatively and completely turned it around in two years. Together, with my partner Cory, we built a creative department that has been is winning multiple national and international awards for ideas that are also driving record business results for our clients.
But don’t just take MY word for it. Check THE math.
A creative rise that induced nosebleeds.
Over the span of two years Havas has risen 72 places on Strategy’s Creativity Report Card.
Creativity so consistent It's becoming commonplace.
While many agencies have award winning streaks, it’s often with one campaign or for one specific client. Our success was spread out over seven different campaigns for six different brands.
Winning on award show entry fees.
As a general rule of thumb, only about 20% of the work entered at award shows will be awarded in some form. Last year, over 50% of what we entered got us to the podium. By understanding the categories and knowing what juries are looking for, we took a modest awards budget and made it count.
No Creative left behind.
Not only is our work being recognized at an array of award shows, our whole department is responsible for our success. All the creative teams came away with something to put in their trophy cases - including two of the junior teams.
