About Us

Jennifer Merio

Every kid loves stories. Reading, creating and performing - diving into another world. Jennifer never outgrew that.

After graduating from the Alberta College of Art & Design, Jenn spent the first part of her career focused on creating brand experiences that inspire, motivate and engage audiences. Dreaming up logos, ads, print collateral and websites, so others would know and share the tale.

Through her 17+ years of industry experience, Jennifer has evolved from Art Director to Brand Consultant, Marketing Director to Client Partner – always with the goal of bringing audiences together with brands that really matter to them. She’s worked with clients large and small, from custom identities to launching a successful national retail brand. Regardless of budget, it always comes down to one thing: finding new and creative ways to tell a story.

In 2012, Jenn was thrilled to be invited to join the faculty at ACAD as an instructor at the School of Design, Visual Communications Department. Inspiring the designers of tomorrow, her students inspire and provoke, and continually push her to be a better visual communicator, to make better art.

These days, if she's not performing onstage or cursing her way through a hot yoga class, you'll find Jenn working hands-on with clients, designers and developers, leading them through all stages of the creative process. And she's (usually) having a lot of fun along the way.
