I run a strategic design consultancy that specializes in branding & digital marketing for real-estate, hospitality, & premium services.
I'm Denny, and I'm a Creative Director from Toronto. I've got close to 20 years of experience in helping big companies, small startups, and everything in between, stand out in a crowded marketplace and connect with their ideal customers through exceptional branding, storytelling, and digital & social media marketing.

BRANDING FOR FAST FOOD CHAIN
Smoke's Poutiernie is wild & wacky fast food chain from Canada, that needed to target a young demographic who loved the fun of eating poutine and doing things that are out of the norm. They wanted to create a brand that was big, bold, and bodacious, and would have a cult-like following, while being distinctly Canadian.
BRANDING FOR PREMIUM CARPET RETAILER
Kingsway Carpets & Blinds needed our help to re-brand and re-position themselves as a premium supplier that people can trust for top quality goods and service.
Inspired by Woodlands style aboriginal art, we created a new brand platform for the Chi-Cheemaun ferry, as well as a new visual language of illustrations and graphics. We integrated the campaign across multiple platforms, from mobile apps to billboards to the ship experience. There were 130 unique elements created for the brand.
MOBILE APP PASSION PROJECT
CountDracu1, is an early-learning kid's app I created for the App Store. This was a passion project of mine, where I came up with the concept & story-line, illustrated & animated the characters, did the voice-over, as well as programmed the app. It revolves around a young vampire from Toronto, and his gang of multi-cultural friends.
Prior to joining the business of Advertising, I used to work as a Visual Effects Artist & 3D Animator on movies such as "Resident Evil", "Dawn of the Dead", and "Cube Zero". I'm also a professionally trained voice-actor, and have taught as a Graphic Design professor at Humber College.
Currently I live in Toronto with my charming wife, son and daughter. I'm the creative director & co-founder of Rayvn, a multi-disciplinary design consultancy that doesbrand strategy, branding, digital UX & UI, as well interior design & architectural 3D pre-vizualization.
I love Big Ideas and the ability to express them through stories and design. I also enjoy the fast-paced ever-changing digital environment, and my critical thinking skills lend themselves well to the work. I'm successful because I adhere to this simple notion: that the one staple that all disciplines thrive on is concept, pure and simple.
