We Tell Stories

Every piece of good content is a well-told story.

 Forget blah blah blah marketing – to succeed today you need to stand out from the crowd. Bonfire tells stories and creates content that makes you stand out. We’re an eclectic team of thinkers, designers and writers, working with brands and marketing agencies throughout North America. From our sea-side base on Canada’s East Coast we produce content for all kinds of organizations, but we have a weakness for B2B tech brands with gnarly, complicated stories to tell.

The Team

Bonfire is home to talented group of thinkers, writers and designers.

Lise Hansen
Partner and Creative Director

The Aesthete
Design is in her blood. Seriously. She’s Norwegian and you know how Scandinavians abide by the hygge. She’s focused on creative that goes beyond what people see into what they feel.

Allan Gates
Partner and Strategy Lead

The Professor
Allan is a veteran marketing and communications strategist who moonlights as a university business lecturer. He’s obsessed with the  point where culture, technology and marketing intersect.

Jonathan Selig
Art Director

The Traveller
Jonathan has a worldview that was honed by growing up in places like the Congo and Brazil, and living in the far north of Canada and the far south of Texas. You just see things a bit differently. That’s a recipe for great design, and a great designer.

Sean Ridder
Writer

The Troubadour
This American came to Canada for the maple syrup, but stayed for the chance to explore his creative side. When he’s not writing killer copy, he’s working on his next album.
