Who We Are
We’re listeners, thinkers and conceptualizers. We strategize, design and create content for our clients and have a heck of a lot of fun along the way.
Meet the Team
Creative Director & Founder
Big picture thinking, strategic solutions, outstanding design, happy clients, discovering young talent, the privilege of teaching, mentoring, judging and contributing to the professional design industry are but some of the things that continue to motivate Wendy after 20 years of building Gravity into the full-service, multidisciplinary firm it is today. Dang! At this rate, she’ll never open that bakery she’s always on about.
Director of Strategy
While working on some of Canada’s largest accounts, at some of Toronto’s top agencies, Susan honed not only the art of project management but also her ability to think strategically. She’s insightful, logical and passionate beyond the norm. She laments not being able to draw stick figures alongside the designers – but really, who cares, she cycles 365 days a year, took up backcountry camping at we-won’t-say-what-age and keeps the studio in stitches with her ridiculous malapropisms.
Emerald joined Gravity in 2008 after graduating with top honours from York’s Design program where she was Wendy’s best student. Nine years on, Emerald has emerged as an award-winning, industry-recognized art director with an uncanny ability to make design look easy. But don’t be fooled. She applies an extremely disciplined approach to what lies below the creative surface. AND, don’t be fooled by the sweet and chill demeanour of this voracious traveller who plans her global adventures with pinpoint precision.
How can someone so full of fun come up with such seriously brilliant ideas? We love that Meaghan shifted her creative juices from musical theatre to design. Broadway’s loss is Gravity’s gain! Who needs a Tony when awards from the likes of Applied Arts, Art Directors Club of Canada and Adobe are proof of her outstanding graphic performances.
Laura keeps us guessing, that’s for sure. Surprisingly, she loves all things Christmas, fine art, rap music and horror movies all at the same time! But, there was absolutely no guess work involved when we chose Laura to join the Gravity team. Multiple degrees, awards, big name account experience and crazy methodical thinking all add up to a versatile, uber talented designer.
We almost couldn’t hire Hana because she claims she can’t cook. We’re food crazy here at Gravity. Ok, ok, design comes first, and fortunately this is where Hana excels. Creativity to spare, a love of paper that knows no bounds and a desire to conquer any visual challenge – these are what makes her such a valuable Gravity team member. Cooking can come later…
Dale keeps the office ticking so we can focus on creating. She’s organized, resourceful, and cracks the whip with a smile. Admittedly our favourite resource of Dale’s is her ever-growing excel sheet highlighting the best eats from every corner of Toronto.
Tiny and unassuming? Hardly. She is as proficient in art direction as she is in surveillance and security. One bark means more white space, two barks – more wow-factor. A growl means it doesn’t pass AODA standards (or depending on her mood, more liver treats).
