After a stint in Toronto as a copywriter, Andrew has come home to Halifax to join the Tramp fam for a fresh creative challenge and some refreshing ocean air. Or as he puts it, “to do great work, with good people, in the best part of the world”, and we can’t say we blame him.
Outside of the office, when Andrew isn’t at his desk cracking briefs, you’ll likely find him cracking jokes or crunching numbers behind his slow-to-grow guitar collection. Hey, two is still a collection, right?
Whether it’s a grassroots brewery in Halifax, a fashion line in Spain, or a real estate brand in Toronto — Brittany is a passionate art director who is driven to create exceptional, results-driven conceptual work for her clients. While earning her Bachelor of Design at NSCAD University, she expanded her industry knowledge while studying marketing at Ryerson University. A traveler at heart, Brittany then moved to Germany to study Communication Design at The University of Mannheim, and later to Spain where she interned at the fashion-centric UNO Design Studio. After returning home to work in the agency world in Toronto, she found Halifax calling her back. We’re thrilled she answered the call.
When Brittany isn’t telling brand stories through stunning visuals, she loves to stay active by kickboxing and practicing ballet. She will not go a day without a tea or coffee and some old-school tunes. A true smarty-pants, she also speaks four languages. And she loves bread. While living in Germany, Brittany’s nickname was “Brot” (German for bread) or “Brottany” because she was forever bringing bread to class.
During his 16-year career, Trevor has worked at some of Atlantic Canada’s most respected agencies and served an impressive roster of clients including, Agropur, Captain Morgan (Diageo), Cineplex, Moosehead Breweries, Bell Aliant, NSLC, Pizza Delight, Proctor & Gamble, Saputo, Saint Mary’s University, Tourism Nova Scotia, Worker’s Compensation Board of Nova Scotia and many, many more. He is proud to have received more than 30 Ice Awards, an Applied Arts award, and had four campaigns showcased in the international juried advertising archive, Ads of the World
Trevor never completely clocks out, but when he heads home, he marvels at how fast his kids Asher and Aviva grow, and their unending capacity to amaze, amuse and challenge him. Most nights after the house gets quiet, you’ll find him sitting in the kitchen reading mystery novels. When Friday swings around, he can be found playing with his indie-rock dad band or trying to augment his income via five dollar games of rummy 500.
