Rebel Unicorns Assemble!

We're passionately opinionated and occasionally outrageous. We serve looks whether in sneakers or stilettos. We err on the side of too much. We're wildly talented and super humble about it. We’re fiercely unapologetic for who we are and how we do life. We're Rebel Unicorns, and we don't tone down our sparkle for anyone.


Chris Farias

Chris Farias

CEO, Partner, Creative Strategist

Chris is feeling the fantasy. He's an unchained unicorn free to roam. He's on a mission to live his best, most authentic life. He's also a mindful creative that sees the hidden potential in everything around him. Chris loves taking a project and putting it through the rock tumbler in his head until a fully polished concept reveals itself. People say that he's pretty magical, but it's his ability to see the brilliance in others that really sets him apart.

Don't worry about getting lost in techspeak. Jared's a fantastic teacher and can break down even the most complex web topics in a totally human way.

Shuster

Operations Strategist

Stephanie is a master of everything operations. She's the queen of accountability. If she had been at the helm, the Titanic wouldn’t have sunk. If she had been project managing construction, the Tower of Pisa wouldn’t lean. And if she had run in the 2016 presidential election – well, let’s just say she would have trumped the competition. She’s the integrator of our dreams, and we couldn’t be happier with her as part of our team.

An unapologetic pop culture lover, she's not ashamed to admit that everything she knows about writing taglines she learned from the Real Housewives.

Karen Shulman Dupuis

Karen
Schulman
Dupuis

Business Designer + Principal, Social Design

Named one of BetaKit’s 40 Women in Canadian Tech Worth Following, KSD is routinely called a ‘force of nature’. Her agency, Social Design, is not a marketing agency. It is a business design consultancy that works at the intersection of strategy, operations, and marketing.

When KSD talks about business design, she starts by talking business goals: online, offline, and everything in between. She doesn’t build "digital strategies" or "social media strategies" or websites. She doesn’t start with a solution, app, or campaign in mind. She starts with asking one question: to what end?

Steph Seagram

STEPHANIE
SEAGRAM

Artist + Arts Educator

Stephanie Seagram is the creative force you want with you in any artistic collaboration. She’s an expert with people - it's her super power and her wisdom. With incredible problem solving skills, and an ability to deconstruct the big ideas, Stephanie communicates the path forward with curiosity and an open mind. She has the gift of empowerment and it's this hard-to-pin-down effervescence (aka unicorn glitter) that makes Stephanie - with her generous spirit and a passion for making ideas happen - an ally of the rebellion. She has worked with youth, adults, and organizations in a variety of artistic settings and on creative projects. As a practicing artist, her work is in private and corporate collections, including at KPMG, McMaster University and the Hamilton Community Foundation.
