Brad Pearson — Creative Director

Brad PearsonBrad is a digital and print design professional of 20 years, equally at home in the technical and creative worlds — the type who gives both colour theory and coding their due. His first major project was a multimedia CD-ROM annual report, which he proposed to a national telecom company in the mid-90s. Soon after, he waded into the web’s “Wild West” years, marking up HTML in Notepad and designing for 8-bit colour displays. He learned the ins and outs of web design working on corporate projects for companies in the real estate, telecom and energy sectors, while attending OCA (before it was “OCAD”) as a part-time design student. The Browser Wars, Web Standards Project, JavaScript vs. JScript, and advent of CSS were just a few of the technical changes he lived and learned through as the web evolved. After the Dot Com Crash, he returned to OCAD (before it was “OCAD University”) full-time. On graduation, he transitioned to the environmental nonprofit sector, working for the likes of Greenpeace and Earth Day Canada — and has never looked back. His professional passion stems from a love of pure creativity, and a respect for technology and design’s capacity to empower communications for positive social change.
