TEAM ATLAS

CHAD HASON
FOUNDER & CMO

I got into marketing to get paid to tell stories. I spent most of my enthusiastic youth acting as the unofficial spokesperson for anything I discovered worth talking about. Now, I get paid to do that. I enjoy the work I do here at ATLAS because there are no motives above doing great work within an environment that truly supports some incredibly talented and creative minds.

ROBBIE GILCHRIST
FOUNDER & CEO

I got into marketing the honest way - I failed at hard labour. At ATLAS I get to sit down in a comfy chair, and as the CEO you better believe it's a really good one. Running an agency provides an outlet for the only thing I've ever really enjoyed: creative storytelling.

CHARLES FILIPSKI
COO

I joined ATLAS to help bring leadership guidance to a team bursting with talent and potential, at a time when their biggest challenge was managing an impressive influx of ambitious clients. At ATLAS, I provide clarity within an industry often driven by chaos, ensuring we remain equipped, agile, and proactive in the pursuit of our clients' goals. 

 

 

LIZ BURT
SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER

I chose a career in marketing because it was the perfect fit for my creative brain and a way to get paid for my endless flow of ideas. A curious kid, I grew up on the east coast searching for treasure and wondering what made people tick. I love working at ATLAS  because we approach social media as a two-way conversation between brands and consumers; shaping the narrative by listening to the needs and wants of our audience.

JAY DAVIDSON
PROJECT MANAGER

I have always had an itch for marketing. I’ve been interested in human behaviour and why people react to certain things like packaging, pricing, brands, and trends general, from the time I was 10 and EVERYONE had a hoodie from The Source. ATLAS gives me the ability to work with people, create relationships, and the flexibility and freedom to go above and beyond for our clients to ensure that they have the best experience and want to work with us long-term.

KERI LOOIJEN
ACCOUNT MANAGER

I came into marketing to build connections and relationships. I was the kid in the class who was always in trouble for talking and making new friends anywhere the teacher moved me. I’m a natural extrovert who thrives in connecting people to others and learning everything I can about everyone. Now I get paid to be the chatty relationship builder I was born to be. I love the work I get to do with ATLAS because I continually get to meet new people, learn about exciting industries, and help build relationships.

KUL CHOUDHARY
SENIOR WEB DEVELOPER

I have always been detail oriented, and became infatuated with coding at a young age. I love seeing the behind the scenes of what goes into creating a beautiful and engaging website, and at ATLAS I am able to work on the cutting edge of new and innovative web design with some of the best brands in the world.

HAYES TONG
LEAD DESIGNER

I’m the person you will always find sitting at a desk, playing with pixels and colours, oblivious to what's happening outside of my creative world. My passion is making everything as attractive and appealing as possible. For me, ATLAS gives me creative liberty and invests in my potential.  Everyone here is empowered to lead in their own area.

RYAN ROMANOSKI
SEM

I got into marketing in order to help businesses grow. Digital advertising allows me to do this by developing well optimized paid campaigns to deliver conversions that increase profit. I enjoy the work I do here at ATLAS because I get to work with a great team of experts, and help a variety of clients achieve their goals.

JESSICA FINCH
SENIOR COPYWRITER

I believe a career in copywriting chose me, rather than the other way around. I spent my childhood writing stories about anything and everything, and today, that same love remains. ATLAS offers me a creative environment for my passion; one that encourages hard work, innovation, honesty, and places the client at the centre of everything we do. 

SHAHTAJ SHAHID
GRAPHIC DESIGNER

My passion for art and design led me to Canada to pursue a design degree at the Alberta University of the Arts. After several successful years working in the creative industry with various brands and agencies, both in-house and as a freelancer, I found a home at ATLAS where I believe I will remain happy and inspired for the foreseeable future.

ADRIANNA BURDEN
ENGAGEMENT MANAGER

My passion for marketing revolves around the desire to talk to drive conversation and brand appeal around the products and services we represent. At ATLAS, my day-to-day remains focused on our cannabis clients, ensuring they remain engaged in the conversations, events, and advocacy that drive our industry. 

OUR MANIFESTO

CHANGE BY DESIGN.


Design has the power to transform ideas, mobilize change, and inspire action; it brings concepts to life and makes the world a more beautiful, approachable place. Our designs create experiences capable of communicating the complex, empowering the unheard, and creating connections where others may have missed the opportunity.

SIMPLE IS SOPHISTICATED.

We refine complex ideas into simple, beautiful concepts that remove the noise and allow essential messages to shine.

“Perfection is attained not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to remove.”

- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

SOLVE PROBLEMS
AND SET EXPECTATIONS.

Effective design solves real-world, bottom-line business objectives, while simultaneously establishing a brand’s identity as one committed to longstanding excellence.

BE HUMAN, FOR HUMANS.

No matter how you slice it, business is about making long-lasting connections with people. We work best with those who understand this, and have created an environment where humans, with all their unique complexities and evolving needs, can thrive.

IN THE SERVICE OF OTHERS.

We pride ourselves on partnering with brands who know their value and how it can improve lives. If the offering is authentic, the message should be simple with benefits that are relatable, in-demand, and easy to embrace.

QUESTION EVERYTHING?

Forget the status quo. We ask the questions no one else asks in order to discover solutions others miss. While the majority zigs, we zag – uncovering advantages for your business that the complacent fail to recognize.

YOU ARE YOUR BRAND.

More than your colours, logos, fonts, and spokespeople, customers remember their experience. From first consideration to post-sale, the experience is your brand. We design experiences that will cater to their needs, delight their senses, and secure loyalty to your brand in their hearts.

GO FURTHER.

Search the hidden places. Push through perceived barriers. Create the unbelievable. Set higher goals. Assume nothing is impossible, and we’ll help you prove it.

Would definitely recommend Atlas for your web and digital requirements."
