Profile

—  Covering a wide range of industries, for companies big and small

 
 

Hello

I'm Ross: a designer and creative entrepreneur living in Vancouver, Canada. I've been on both sides of the brand/product development partnership, managed one of Vancouver's best design studios, established public art initiatives and worked on notable projects for renowned companies, government programs, lifestyle brands and editorial publications. I teach regularly at Vancouver's Emily Carr University and collaborate with some of the design industry's best.

I prefer to have my hands in a range of projects, always with a focus on strong design, clear communication and memorable experiences.

Sitting still isn't in my repertoire, so when I'm not working I'm usually on my bike out to Horseshoe Bay or climbing half-way up a mountain. If you have a project or opportunity that seems like a fit, I'd be happy to hear from you.
