Empowering brands through strategic wit, creative compassion and radical optimism.
Steph Millar is a Toronto-based Strategist currently at Pigeon Brands, "making brands come true".
Tapped into the zeitgeist, she is an avid trend hunter surfing the cultural landscape in order to craft human-centered brands with purpose.
Steph's insatiable curiosity, entrepreneurial drive and human-centered approach to branding through strategy, copywriting and design has enabled her to work on a diverse portfolio of brands in both New York City and Toronto.
Out of office, you can find her adventuring with her puppy, curating eclectic playlists, whipping up gluten-free and vegan waffles, California dreamin' about VW Westfalias and trying to determine how Junior Mints are so ding dang delicious.
