Bravo Tango is the result of an entrepreneurial spirit combined with a vision to change the way conventional ad agencies operate. In 2008, Ben launched this forward-thinking company using his experience from the advertising industry both as a client and an agency executive.
Steven is a true renaissance man. He does everything from logo design, to websites, to multimedia production. And, he loves to work! (We've only seen him leave the office a total of six times). Steven majored in Advertising at George Brown College, School of Design in Toronto. He has over six years of ad agency experience working in Saskatoon and Regina. He was featured at Best of Show, Design Exchange, Toronto and has won too many Saskatchewan Ace Awards to list!
Dean is one of Saskatchewan's top designers. His creative energy and strategic insight stem from over 12 years of ad agency experience. He's worked his magic with major clients such as British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC), Tourism Saskatchewan, Labatt Breweries, SaskTel and many other leading edge companies. Dean has won numerous design awards and his work has been featured in Creativity Annual 33 and Applied Arts Award Annual. He's a quiet guy, but his work speaks volumes.
Scott is a versatile designer with a flair for advertising. And above all, he's a true artist at heart. Scott has over six years experience working with some of Saskatchewan's largest clients including SGI, Mosaic Potash, SaskEnergy and Conexus Credit Union. When he's not working on award-winning designs, you'll find Scott defending his Ms. Pacman High Score Champion title from Ben on the office's retro arcade game.
Kristina is a design heavyweight that packs a powerful one-two punch. She has a degree in Marketing from the University of Regina and a Degree in Visual Communications from Medicine Hat College. She's visited over 13 countries and even studied marketing in England for a semester. Kristina is one of the most talented and well-rounded designers we've ever met.
Sarah's ability to manage projects is second to none. Her attention to detail is amazing; it's as if she has a magnifying glass with her at all times. In addition to her brilliant project management skill, she's also a marketing whiz, thanks in part to her Paul J. Hill School of Business Marketing degree. Did we mention she graduated with distinction? Sarah showers each and every Bravo Tango client with the love they so rightly deserve. She shares this love with the community too as a community-volunteer extraordinaire.
Lucy co-captained the Paul J. Hill School of Business team to a 2nd place finish at Western Canada's largest business competition, JDC West 2010, demonstrating her strong leadership skills and business savvy. And thanks also to her marketing background and superb client service, she's one heck of an Account Planner. But fair warning, Lucy likes to have fun and spares no mercy, so take heed!
When it comes to project management, there's nothing Pippa can't didgeridoo. Hailing from Forbes, Australia, Pippa holds a BBA and Advanced Diploma in Marketing and Business Management. Her attention to detail, ability to multi-task and firm grasp of all things marketing make her a client's dream. When she's not prepping budgets, briefing creatives, or managing timelines, she can usually be found throwing another lamb on the barbie (and we're not kidding).
When Steph speaks, people listen. She is one of Saskatchewan's top media planners, thanks in part to her passion for advertising, a U of S Commerce degree with a Major in Marketing and over five years of ad agency experience. She's developed local and national targeted media plans for a wide variety of clients and is very well respected within the advertising and media community. Steph has relocated from Saskatoon to be with us and we couldn't be happier. Cheers to that!
Steph writes with passion. As such, she feels most at home nestled behind the sweet, sweet keys of her laptop. It is from here that she has helped create some of the province’s most memorable campaigns. Her experience with two of Saskatchewan’s largest agencies has equipped her with many skills; most notably a passion for branding and memorable copy. She’s a huge fan of Hitchcock, The Doors, sushi, and long walks in Lakeview. And we’re huge fans of her.
Like so many before him, Vaughn came to us from the sacred birthplace of creatives (also known as Medicine Hat). As our newest and sole bearded interactive developer, Vaughn is proficient in HTML, CSS, PHP, jQuery, MySQL, and a host of other acronyms that seem like random letters to most. His ability to conceptualize a final product through nothing more than abstract thought makes him an invaluable member of our team – and a bit of a wizard to our clients.
Kyle traded one mouse for another when he left his web developer position at Disney to join the team at Bravo Tango. He brought with him a Degree in Visual Communications (with honours) from Medicine Hat College, and a portfolio that kicked some serious CSS!
Every time a new staff member joins the Bravo Tango team, we donate to the World Wildlife Federation (WWF) on their behalf. This donation goes toward the WWF "Adopt An Animal" program which supports endangered species. In addition to receiving a certificate, we also receive a stuffed animal of the particular endangered species that we adopted. Check out the WWF "Adopt An Animal" program for more info, WWF.ca.
The stuffed animals also speak to our mantra – Be Loved.
