creative director

 

Gary is a creative director who directs animation and live action (when called for).  He began life as an animator but found it a little repetitive (animation joke), discovered post, graphics, and advertising and hasn’t looked back since. He spent the first ten years working in Hong Kong and Sydney as an online artist, then came back to Toronto and opened Crush, which was Toronto’s top post and graphics studio for many years.

Since joining Nice Shoes in 2016, Gary has won an AICE Award for his team’s animated collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Child Protection, “Project Arachnid,” delivered an epic design and animation package for Open Text’s 2017 event, and will be collaborating with them for their 2018 conference as well.
