A Bit About Us

OUR VISION

To invite outside-the-box thinking by igniting the creative spark between client + designer • To incorporate the client’s own spark in the design process • To acknowledge that the best solution often lies beyond the void.

We dislike platitudes and like questioning the status quo. We relish the chase of finding clever solutions for each client that click beyond the obvious. From a one off need to a long term strategy, we are devoted to ensuring each step of the way concludes with a clear, inventive end result.

The love for what we do ignites ideas to differentiate and clarify our client’s brand message. A simple phone call often turns into an exciting brain jam, which provides the spark that leads the way to clarity with the organization’s direction.

WE BRIDGE THE GAP

We Bridge the Gap between Where Your Business Is and Where it Needs to Go. To invite outside-the-box thinking by igniting the creative spark between client + designer • To incorporate the client’s own spark in the design process • To acknowledge that the best solution often lies beyond the void.

We do this through:

  • Client Collaboration. We will ask how involved the client wants to be in the design process before building the road map
  • Asking questions to get to the root of the business, the brand message or an issue
  • Understanding the client’s vision with a questionnaire and phone call before the project moves forward

ABOUT

Laurie had a calling for design since her early days at art school. She continued to answer the call at the University of BC, obtaining an art history degree with the intention of going into architecture. Instead, she married and moved to Kitchener-Waterloo and continued her studies, enrolling in an intense Graphic Design program. After freelancing as a graphic designer for 7 years, she went back to school in 1998, earning a Certificate in Digital Graphic Design. She came up with the business name at this time.

The client relationships that Laurie built over the years and continues to build drives her to exceed expectations. This passion often sparks the same when collaborating with her clients and her team.
