Jean Merrick

Senior Designer

Jean is a graphic designer and copywriter who specializes in branding, digital, and creative advertising. She believes that every story deserves to be told in brilliant and captivating detail. Her prior experience includes both agency and in-house positions, where she helped build bold brand identities, as well as a healthy roster of freelance clients. Jean's portfolio covers a diverse range of categories, with a focus on food and beverage, wellness, retail, technology, and professional services. You may have seen some of her art and copy for Toronto institutions such as Demetres, Chronic Ink, VegTO, and the RGD.

An advertising graduate from OCADU, she approaches all work through a strategic lens, infusing art and copy with a clever hook, a healthy pinch of panache, and plenty of surprise and delight moments.

Hailing from the village of Parkdale in Toronto, Jean currently holds the distinction of being the only 7 Communications employee without a driver’s license—a perfectly ironic detail for an agency representing luxury automotive brands.
