Michael Gouveia is a designer, art director, and brand strategist. For 15 years he worked as an art director with several creative shops, working for non-for-profit, private, public, and government organizations, articulating brand strategies, producing integrated campaigns, and providing identity design, advertising, graphic and web design services. Amongst his most notable achievements was his contribution to the creation and development of some of Canada’s most recognized brands: Steam Whistle Brewery, workopolis.com, TD Canada Trust, and Tarion.

In late 2009, Mike left the agency life and began pushing the boundaries of arresting and effective brand communications. As a freelancer and consultant,
he continues to build brands that are stimulating and meaningful to the consumer while meeting his client’s marketing goals and business objectives.



Mike is an impressive individual. He takes the message you wish to portray and through arrant talent, create truly outstanding quality pieces aesthetically and professionally while always being fully aware of your budget. He will indeed express the heart and soul of your company as well as surpass your expectations.

Michael has an uncanny and unique ability to articulate and bring blossom the embryonic and often unconscious visions of his clients. The finished work elicits ‘wows’ and ‘ahas’ and beyond them sheet joy of recognizing their fully liberated and articulated vision. His stunning work raises the bar for all those in his field.

  1. Mike has worked every creative position in the agency from junior studio designer, prepress operator to senior art director.

  2. Received job offers to work on the TD Canada Trust account... from two different agencies... at the same time. As fate would have it, Mike would go on to work on the TD Canada Trust merger and make his mark on the TD Canada Trust brand and its numerous divisions for almost 9 years.

  3. He is one of the co-founders of the Bay Street Brawl event, Fight For Independence, a charity boxing event for the benefit of SickKids Hospital and the Nazareth House.

  4. He once lost a game of Connect Four to Chuck Norris. Norris won in 3 moves.
