Fueled by a love of all things baseball, typographic and BBQ’d, founder Matt Macdonald is a detail-oriented creative thinker (who may or may not smell like hickory). Having studied Communications & Design at OCAD, his influences include architecture, photography and local underground music scenes. Honing his skills over the last 15+ years includes 8 years in studios around town, as Senior Designer and Creative Director. He believes that putting people first and creating meaningful design can make a difference.

As much as good design, we value continued relationships and the opportunity to build new ones. Check out our services, if you have any questions — or are not sure what you need — please feel free to ask us!
