Sault Ste. Marie is a city of 80,000 people, three hours from Sudbury, and eight hours from Thunder Bay. In other words, we’re surrounded by a lot of trees. And yes, it does snow here. Without fail, winter comes every year, but that’s fine because everything that’s good about winter is very accessible here.
In less than an hour you can be boarding down wide-open slopes, stepping out on snowshoe trails or snowmobiling for days and never see the same tree twice.
In the summer it gets hot, but without all the humidity of Southern Ontario. In fact, each season in this part of the country is intense, and there’s always something to do. If you like camping, fishing, hiking or any outdoor activity, then you’ll love the Sault.
Now, just in case you think we’re sounding a little too remote, we get the same concerts, events, and festivals that you’ll find in most places in Ontario. And we love our sports too. Just ask any Soo Greyhounds fan. By the way, did you know that Gretzky played for the Soo Greyhounds?
Sault Ste. Marie also has the cost of living beat, and you can usually get to work from anywhere in the city in under 20 minutes (including the elevator ride). For the cost of renting an apartment in Toronto, you can buy a house here, and a nice one at that.
It’s not for everyone, but we love it here. You can even check out some of the work we’ve done that features the best of life in Northern Ontario and Sault Ste. Marie.
Rounding out the Design Team are the Production Artists. They participate on creative projects, including illustrations and designs for print and web-based projects, carrying the direction and tone as established by the Art Director and other senior members of the Design Team. They prepare files and projects in pre-press ready formats and troubleshoot issues with printers.
They work efficiently on multiple projects to meet tight deadlines by implementing quick revisions to match a client's, Art Director's or Senior Designer's requests. They work with Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and other graphic design software to produce designs and creative output, while taking into account print and web technical guidelines. They also work with the client strategy team in delivering creative projects to clients by providing and implementing artistic recommendations.
