Creative Director/Suckerpunch Co-Founder
A former roller derby skater and graduate of the Advertising Art program at Red River College, Jennifer is known for her boundless energy and design intuition. As creative director, she works very closely with clients, seeing projects through from conception to delivery. Living and breathing design, Jennifer uses her critical eye to bring client-focused creative to life, understanding that all jobs – large or small – can have a huge impact on brand. In 2017, this work hard/play hard gal brought together two of her passions and launched the annual Run for Tacos, an almost 5K race that culminates in an all-you-can eat taco extravaganza on the Suckerpunch deck.
Digital Media Director/Partner
A scholar of Red River’s Digital Multimedia Technology program, Lee loves the complexities of digital design. Staying on top of new technologies in an increasingly complex field and balancing aesthetics with metrics, our digital media director ensures that the websites we produce are as attractive as they are functional; even (or especially) if it means coming up with something unconventional. Lee also lends his photographic talents to our culinary projects and, in his spare time, collects curious cars.
Just because one of her middle names is Skye, doesn’t mean Indigo has her head in the clouds. A graduate of the Asper School of Business, our savvy account manager has a Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) in Marketing and Entrepreneurship and a serious passion for analysis and marketing strategy. When she’s not helping our team and clients achieve success, she’s working with another team – the Washed Up Ballas of the women’s basketball league.
Whether he’s taming Joomla, exploring the deepest, darkest corners of WordPress, or just answering our cries of “Jesse, help!”, Jesse’s day is never boring! As our digital developer, this Red River College Digital Media Design alumni loves finding creative solutions to technical problems and doesn’t step away until he’s found a better way to make things work. In his downtime, he enjoys traveling, dreaming of traveling and making grand travel plans (that don’t always pan out).
Creative Content Developer
The smartest and funniest member of the team, Rebecca jumped at the chance to write her own staff bio. In her role as creative content developer, she works on a diverse range of projects, putting to use a unique set of skills, including writing, social media, and recipe development. An honours graduate of Red River College, ex-speechwriter and relentless punster, Rebecca’s passions are cooking, crafting and 80s music.
Style-guru and rum drink connoisseur, Deanna kicks butt on the soccer field and in our design department. A graduate of Red River College’s Graphic Design program, she looks for creative inspiration wherever she goes, often re-designing things in her head. Seeing a design project through from start to finish – especially magazines and printed materials – is what Deanna likes best about her work. Unfamiliar with the term “down-time,” she still manages to make art, cut hair and cuddle with her cats, Kitten and Tyson.
A writer for as long as she could hold a pen, Laura has always loved putting words on paper, making her a natural fit for Red River College’s Creative Communications program. Her favourite part of her work here at Suckerpunch is crafting engaging copy for our awesome clients and, in her role as editor, managing the content of The Communicator. In her spare time, Laura enjoys reading, running and spending time at the park with her dog Timber.
