TORONTO – Creative digital agency Colour’s new creative director Chad Raymond is excited to get started helping Colour’s clients.

The former associate creative director for Canopy Growth Corporation and senior art director for Bensimon Byrne started at the agency’s Toronto office last week. His original start date was Tuesday, but he couldn’t wait to get started.

“With the growth that Colour has seen over the last year, it’s important for us to invest in a creative director that is able to lead our work across all digital channels,” said Savior Joseph, Colour’s President. “We’re very excited to have Chad join the Colour team. His expertise in all things creative and experience with technology, as well as in leading teams, will greatly benefit our clients.”

At Canopy, Raymond was responsible for building, evolving and maintaining the company’s three major brands. At Bensimon Byrne, Raymond was creative lead for such brands as Scotiabank, iShares, and HollisWealth. Raymond also worked three years as senior art director for Loyalty One / Air Miles. He began his career as art director of Digital Cement, where he worked for such global clients as Kraft, FedEx, John Hancock and AstraZeneca.

“Colour is working in a great space for clients, connecting creative with social, digital and PR,” said Raymond. “In week one, I really enjoyed getting to know the team and clients and I am looking forward to helping our clients achieve results with great creativity.”

Raymond holds diplomas in multi-media design and fine arts from Fanshawe College.

With offices in Atlantic Canada, Toronto and New York, Colour is exporting creativity to markets everywhere.
