Brand Director, Strategist

Melissa Wong

"If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change."

What drives Melissa is seeing good brands shine, meaningful stories bringing people together, and teams feeling fulfilled by their purpose. Not only do those results bring her joy, but the process of doing the work collaboratively and creatively with her team and clients is what Melissa loves most about her role as a Brand Director. Her special skill is her ability to turn the messy, chaotic, and confusing parts of the creative process into a simple, structured, and systemized product.

Melissa earned her BBA from the Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University, where she discovered the power of mentorship. Since then, she has taken every opportunity to be both a Mentor and a Mentee, and has been passionately learning about leadership and personal development.

When she’s not at the office, you can find Melissa trying out Vancouver’s newest restaurants, exploring hiking and snow shoe trails, and attempting to score tickets to the next musical theatre production coming to town.
