AUTHOR, SPEAKER, & GLOBAL BRAND GURU
“First, I’ll share a confession… After a decade as an advertising creative director leading some of the world’s coolest brands, I’m hard to impress. I've worked with numerous designers & branding experts in the past who failed to deliver what they promised. Yet working with Denny and the Rayvn team has been an absolute delight. Denny is an attentive listener, fiercely responsive, and savvy with fickle digital marketing trends. Our teams worked closely to transform ideas into a gorgeous portfolio of images and digital content, for social media and presentations. We're thrilled with the results!”.

I've been doing branding & design for the last 20 years. I've worked with iconic brands like Coca-Cola, Sony, Marriott, and Molson-Coors. Yet to this day, I get the most pleasure from empowering small service-based business owners to create extraordinary brands, and attract clients they love. Because I believe small businesses can achieve mighty things, when they have the courage to be brave, stand out, and be rewarded personally & financially for it.
Hi, I'm Denny, and I'm the creative director & co-founder of Rayvn, a multi-disciplinary design consultancy that does strategy, branding, graphics & interior design, and digital & social media marketing.
I have also taught as a Graphic Design professor at Humber College, and served on the panel of judges & mentors for the RGD (Registered Graphic Designers Association).
One thing that teaching has taught me is that it's all about those light-bulb moments. When you teach a student (or a client) something that they didn't know previ0usly, you add more value in what you do than just the services and deliverables you provide. There's an old saying, “If you give a person a fish, you feed them for a day. If you teach a person to fish, you feed them for a lifetime." And those are the kind of clients I want to work with. Clients who have an insatiable appetite to better themselves, and create a business that will be personally & financially rewarding for years to come.
