Hi! I’m Con. I am passionate about creating, collecting, and executing creative projects. I graduated from George Brown College with an Advanced Diploma in Interactive Design and Development. I like to improve each design with collaborators by using market research and design thinking. I’m an open-minded individual who sees opportunity in every idea that’s brought to the table. When I’m not designing or taking pictures, you can find me rollerblading around the city.
Hiya! You can call me Enz :) I studied Interactive Media and Design at Durham college, and while my experience with formal school isn’t as long as others, I have always been involved with different forms of the arts ever since I could remember. The attachment I have with design, art, and fashion is not something I was taught, it’s a quality that I acquired on my own. When I am not obsessing over a color palette or illustrating, I’m most likely cooking up a storm, practicing yoga, or buried deep into a book.
Woop! I’m Atticus, I have the most important job on the team. I lower stress levels and add a playful energy to the office. I’m colour blind so I can’t help too much, but I’ll let you know if I hate the design. When I am not napping in the sun you can find me running around after my favourite tennis ball.
