About Us

Studio Locale is a design-driven boutique branding agency.

 

We are Studio Locale. Our goal is simple: to tell your story to the world using strategic communications and design. The secret behind our success is our unique approach to helping companies take an open minded journey in building out their communications. We partner with our clients in a way that fits the needs of today’s rapidly evolving industries and marketplaces, but is also equally representative of the product and the people that stand behind it.

The Team

Robin Mondor

A foundation in strategy development, communications and operations lets Robin approach projects from various angles and her rapid brain processing speed keeps projects on track.

If you want to loose an hour (or two), talk with Robin about food and cooking, travelling, camping or music - they are her favourite topics for an inspiring distraction.

Bessie Schenk

Bessie has been in strategic communications for over 15 years. With a natural entrepreneurial spirit, after graduating from Wilfrid Laurier University, she took to building business all over North America.

In her spare time she can be found viewing Hitchcock films, photographing shoes, doing yoga, and perusing vintage shops for treasures.

Jason Santo

With over 8 years experience in digital communications, Jason views the forest and the trees. From strategy to execution, Jason can adjust his perspective from internal to external and balance vision and goals with tactical execution. It is this ability that he brings to our project teams to help them shape their brand and communication effectiveness.

Philip Mondor

With more than 18 years’ experience since graduating from OCAD University, Philip has an award-winning eye for design and innate ability to translate client directives into creative solutions. He balances art and design to create strategic solutions with longevity.

From time to time you can find Phil at the front of a design classroom, barbecuing in the rain, shine (and snow), noodling on the bass or deep in a personal project.

Laura Hart

With a background in fashion, both corporate and entrepreneurial, Laura has always had an eye for the beautiful, but her true love is designing strategies to help businesses succeed.

In her off time you can find her in a spin studio, singing loudly in her car by herself, or exploring new restaurants all over the world.

Nicole Beno

Nicole is a graduate of the fine arts and communication studies program at the University of Windsor, and a graduate of the York University master of graphic design program in Toronto.

Outside the studio she's worked on a number of art and fashion projects including look books, catalogues, murals and installations. In her free time she likes to screen print and get her hands dirty with paint.

 

Mark Cortejos

Mark is a graduate of Dalhousie University's psychology program with a business post-graduate certificate from Humber College. With a work background in digital marketing and social media, he excels in flexing his creative mind and formulating new ways to tell stories and share experiences.

In his free time Mark enjoys board games, dessert, and being a new uncle.

Brie

Brie spends her days running to greet guests at the door, giving high fives, and trading kisses for belly rubs. Between naps, she provides down to earth advice on sniffing out potential leads.

In her free time, Brie enjoys licking her friends & family at inopportune times.
