Account Manager

Tessa Heath

"Don't stop until you're proud."

With a background in Psychology and Public Relations, Tessa started her career as an in-house Marketing Coordinator for an architectural products manufacturer. This was where she built her digital marketing experience and found a true passion for leveraging digital landscapes to build brand personalities and increase market share.

As a child, Tessa was described as bold and out-spoken which has grown into a no BS style of communication when it comes to marketing. She believes in using marketing to convey value and real connection with audiences without all the fluff.

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.
