Chris lives and breathes design. Having started at the age of 12, he has since then honed his abilities in different fields when it comes to print and digital media design. From Graphics Design, UI/UX Design, Web Development, 3D Modeling, to even Motion Graphics and Photography, Chris' range of skills and abilities has helped earn his peers' respect as a jack-of-all-trades guy. Recently graduated from Red River College's Digital Media Design Program in 2016 as a major in 3D Animation, Chris still believes that learning one field is not enough, rather designers have to keep on evolving and improving their skills to be successful in this rapidly changing industry. In his off time Chris loves to play (and watch) basketball and hockey, stream video games, and travel!

Michel Got Game! And a wit as sharp as his abilities. He loves video games, which makes for very animated team lunch chats. He's also an Intellivison fanboy without compare and has some great dance moves. Did we mention he is a great videographer? As comfortable behind the camera as he is in front of it. Not Shy. Not at all.
Steven graduated from Robertson College in 2016 through their Software and Database Development program. He spends a lot of his free time honing his programming abilities working on random projects, like a stats tracker system to analyze NHL players, and small arcade games to entertain his niece and nephew.

(His favorites are Gamasutra.com and davidwalsh.name.) When he needs to unplug, Steven enjoys fishing and golfing during the summer time, or playing and coaching hockey during the winter season.
