About

We are a creative studio based in beautiful Vancouver, Canada, founded by Carson Ting and Denise Cheung. We love working on creative projects. Whether it’s an iphone/ipad app, an animated short, a wall mural, music album art, movie title art, or just a silly doodle on a napkin, we will do it. We’ve done work for Microsoft, The Cartoon Network, Daimler AG, Mercedes-Benz global, Jameson Whiskey, Infiniti Canada, Webby Awards, NHL, Kidrobot, adidas Originals, The 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, IdN magazine, DDB Canada, TAXI Canada, Rethink Canada, Canadian Tourism Commission, Hootsuite, Applied Arts Magazine, Computer Arts magazine U.K., Lürzer’s Archive magazine and more.

Carson was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. He graduated from the Ontario College of Art & Design and holds a Bachelor of Design degree. He was voted as Canada’s top 5 most creative person by Marketing Magazine, ranked as one of the top 200 best illustrators in the world by Lürzer’s Archive magazine and listed as one of Top 25 Best illustrators in Canada by the Canadian Design Resource. Carson was formerly a Senior Art Director on the Nike Jordan brand that has earned him 2 bronze Cannes Lions and also the lead creative team behind the global #RiseAbove campaign. In the past, he also helped build brands such as Lexus, Toyota, Sony, Vespa, National Post, Honda, Acura, Canon, Science World and more for the past 12 years. His work is currently exhibited at the San Jose Tech Museum in California.

Denise is a MBA graduate at Wilfred Laurier’s School of Business & Economics. She also holds an Honours Bachelor of Arts specializing in Business Management at the University of Toronto and an MBA Essentials for Managers Certificate from the Rotman Executive Program in Toronto. Denise also has a strong right brain to compliment her brawny analytical left brain and she demonstrates this through her highly visual and inspirational blog ‘Wah! Inspired’.

Denise is mainly responsible for all the boring (but incredibly important) business side of things. If you have any project ideas or inquiries please contact Denise. She’s got business sense and logic. Carson doesn’t. Logic and business sense makes Denise happy. We are about happy. Thanks for reading about us.
