Over the last 11 years, Allison has grown REX from a freelance design business into an award-winning branding and marketing agency. Her experience spans industries, business models, and countries. It’s her ‘outside of the box’ perspective that gets results.

Senior Account Manager + Brand Planner

Melissa Wong

“The only way to support a revolution is to make your own.”

An imaginative storyteller and brand communicator, Melissa is equal parts driven by the process, and results-oriented. She gets excited about seeing ideas come to life. As an Account Manager, Melissa always has one hand in strategy, and the other in creativity – it really is the best of both worlds.

Melissa’s WHY is to leave the world better than she found it – and to use her unique strengths to do so. She always steps into challenge – in her eyes, everything is possible. Whatever you need, she won’t stop until she makes it happen. If you’re in a crisis, you can rely on Melissa to keep you calm and cool.

When she’s not at the office, you can find Melissa trying out new recipes, exploring trails around beautiful British Columbia, and sweating it out at her local barre studio.

Account Executive

Rashaun Reyes

“Think pennies get pennies, think dollars get dollars.”

Growing up, Rashaun has always gravitated towards anything creative. That includes everything from dancing to design and everything in between. Later he discovered his love of strategic problem solving, which in turn lead him to the marketing industry. As an Account Executive, Rashaun strives to utilize his creative and strategic mindset to help organizations reach their goals. Not only will he ensure your businesses’ creative assets look great, but that they also have the right strategy and message behind them.

When he isn’t in the office, he is often enjoying himself through creative outlets or exercise. That may be travelling abroad with camera in hand, making sure his close friends look great for a night out as an amateur barber, training Muay Thai at his local gym, or just getting a few good sets of push-ups in at home.

Christian Jones

“Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.”

Christian is a graphic designer living in Vancouver, Canada. He received his BA at the University of British Columbia for visual arts and design. After graduation, he decided to continue his studies in the field of design and enrolled in the graphic design program at The Art Institute of Vancouver.

Christian’s goal as a graphic designer is to use his craft to shakeup the way we as a culture perceive the world around us. He’s an adventurer at heart, so his free time is usually spent in the wilderness or planning his next backpacking trip. Much of his inspiration as a graphic designer is drawn from his previous travels, most notably his time spent in Iceland and Patagonia. Each trip he ventures out on helps to expand his view of the world, which in turn strengthens his ability to develop unique visual content.
