Ellen spends most of her time at Fusion deep in “Code Mode”, only looking away from her screen for snack breaks (cookies and juice boxes are a staple) or to send a hilarious (yet sometimes random and inappropriate) GIF to put a smile on all of our faces. She is the digital wizard on the team using her mad skills in HTML-CSS-PHP-CMS-Lego-Building-and-Dog-Cuddles to create fun interactive solutions that really work for our clients. But Don’t get it twisted, Ellen is so much more than creating digital masterpieces and solving IT problems one line of code at a time. She is a driven, creative, Swiss Army knife that is always ready to throw her hand up to help wherever it’s needed. Including getting old ladies across the street.
As studio owner, Brent has a personal stake in everything that we do—successful projects, happy clients, win-win solutions, its what he’s all about. Brent leads with his strategic, creative and unique perspective, providing focus and direction, but most importantly support to his amazing team. He is an accredited Registered Graphic Designer (RGD) and currently sits on the RGD Board as Chair of Membership. He is also on the advisory committees for Georgian, Humber, and St. Lawrence Colleges’ Graphic Design Programs. He has spoken and been a panelist at many RGD events, and has been volunteering for RGD student portfolio reviews for almost 10 years. Although much of his time is spent conversing (both verbally and written), somehow he still manages to get things done. He may be slower than everyone else (he is pretty old), but he feels the need to kern everything!
Sarah F is like the double sided tape that holds this whole crazy operation together. With Fusion being made up of mostly creatives (paperwork makes us feel sad inside), we would be left spinning without her administrative know-how. After doing her time in corporate culture, Sarah finds herself much more at home in our creative climate. Although only part-time, Sarah does more in three hours than Brent does in a week (shhhh… don’t tell him). Her booming laugh is hard to miss. It’s positively infectious and makes the rest of us LOLOLOL, too. She navigates her way through a plethora of paperwork with the greatest of ease and makes sure that our balance sheet always… well, balances. Invoices go out, payments come in and our suppliers are happily up-to-date. Sarah is a rare breed, entertaining and organized, all wrapped up in one hilarious package.
Sarah P is fondly referred to as the “Momma Bear” of the Fusion Fam. Not just because she keeps having babies, but because of her protective instinct, offering guidance and wisdom whenever we find ourselves in a creative pickle (whether we want it or not). And she certainly has a lot of “Fusion-centric” experience to pull from, being the most senior part of the team (only Brent has been here longer). As co-design lead with Jaimie, Sarah wears many hats (some even have animal ears on them), rounding up the team for brainstorming sessions and production pow-wow’s, developing rock solid creative, doing custom illustration, helping with project estimates and trying to manage Brent’s grasp on reality. Sarah pushes the limits on every project, and gives our clients pieces that truly stand out. Just like her!
