Branding & Design
An award-winning creative director and designer with over 20 years industry experience and an extensive body of work ranging from brand identity, traditional advertising, packaging and editorial design to interactive and broadcast.
My career began in the UK working in London’s creative hub, the Clerkenwell district, as designer and pre-press production lead for one of the city’s premiere print firms. Returning to Canada, I began providing design services for some of Canada’s leading advertising agencies and design firms. As a result, I have had the opportunity to work on consumer brands of global recognition.
With a desire to expand into new media, I began work as a senior designer and later Associate Creative Director of an award-winning, Toronto-based interactive firm.
In 2004 I co-founded Strano and Pettigrew Design Associates and have successfully lead the design and creative direction for a diverse and well-respected group of companies nationally and abroad.
Traditional, timeless, type-driven design would be the best way to describe my creative approach. My work has been recognized and published in internationally respected creative publications Communication Arts, HOW Magazine, Coupe Magazine, The Dieline and Marketing Magazine.
