Katie Lively
Creative Director

A deep thinker; a problem solver; an experimenter and a motivator, Katie is driven for work and play. A possibilitarian, she immerses herself in every creative challenge, constantly asking the question “why?” or wondering if there is a better way. An early riser with an abundance of creative energy, she tries to squeeze the absolute most out of every day. It’s therefore no surprise you’ll regularly find her at the gym teaching RPM classes before and after work.

He loves nothing more than a project with no boundaries and client that is open to possibilities. His passion for people and great client service make him an astute and energetic Client Service Director. When he’s not on the phone or emailing like crazy, you’ll find him at the gym, eating out with friends, or rehearsing his rock star dream on his Youtube channel.

Melissa So
Senior Creative
Perpetually curious, inquisitive and always collecting new experiences, Mel gets excited about anything that requires tactile problem solving. Self confessed type nerd and graduate of the [email protected] program, she is interested in the preservation of artisanship and always tries to incorporate a human touch to her work. On her days off she’s working on lettering projects, playing the accordion, going to art galleries and turning ordinary interactions with people into awkward ordeals.

Boris Kezic
Senior Creative
World traveller, CrossFit fanatic, humanitarian and motivational magnet, Boris is an emotional intellect hard wired for empathy and projects with positive social impact. An active and positive being, he loves problem solving for purpose and brand building from the ground up, translating core beliefs and ambitions into something tangible. If he’s not working he’s probably running a marathon, a spartan race, tough mudder or doing CrossFit.
