Hello there! If you hadn't figured it out yet, I am Braeden Laverty. Welcome to my corner of the interwebs.

You want to get to know me? Well, sure, why not?

I am an Art Director and Designer by trade, but I like to dabble in a little bit of everything. You can find me in the outskirts of Toronto, working all around the city. I have notched about 9 years of agency experience under my belt, and have several years of design and creative experience beyond that. I have also managed to win a few awards too, which is always nice.

Oh, and I also love rock climbing! Not sure how that is relevant, however...
