We Tell Stories

Bonfire is home to a talented group of thinkers, writers and designers.

Allan Gates
Partner and Strategy Lead

The Professor
Allan is a veteran marketing and communications strategist who moonlights as a university business lecturer. He’s obsessed with the point where culture, technology and marketing intersect.

Donna Gates

The Collaborator
Donna brings people and ideas together. Need consensus? Need that backed by strategy? She can do that.

Kay Gillis
VP Strategy & Client Services

The Connector
How can we engage with that group? What will make this work? How can we make this better? These are questions Kay is constantly asking. Whether it’s a campaign for her clients or working in her community – she’s constantly looking for ways to bring new ideas to life and new groups together.

Gillian Goldie
Creative Director

The Composer
Gillian is craft personified. She creates stunning visual experiences with a keen eye for design and strategy. Pulling from her background living in Australia, Fiji, and Canada, Gillian’s designs are equal parts stunning and clever.

Jonathan Selig
Director, Digital

The Traveller
Jonathan has a worldview that was honed by growing up in places like the Congo and Brazil, and living in the far north of Canada and the far south of Texas. You just see things a bit differently. That’s a recipe for great design, and a great designer.
