    Graphic Designer, Drummer, Studio Founder; Dave Champion-Taylor.
    “Looking back, it’s always been this way… most everything Dave likes is creative. It’s design and doodles, it’s the musical note and the words that get wrote. It’s cooking and baking and summertime laking, it’s big idea dreaming and giving life meaning. These are the things that make Dave happy. 
    Dave’s actual design career began at Glenn Tinley Design and then Fusion in the 90’s. The new millennium brought new challenges when Guppy was born and Dave was a proud parent. The current studio, Champion Design, enjoys the success and flexibility that only freelancing can bring. Delivering quality branding to mom and pop shops and start-ups is just as gratifying as bringing it to Champion Design's big clients in Canada and the US alike.
    When it’s not time for design that means it’s time for sports of all sorts, music and bands, family and friends and fun that never ends.”

    Craig Medwyduk, OOTS E5S1

    Howdy, I have been working as a creator for the past 20 years. Making successful visual work for clients like the Juno Awards, the Grey Cup, Federated Co-operatives, Canadian Country Music Awards, General Electric, Rogers… a mountain of awesome projects with great clients.
    A career with peer recognition, is an amazing thing. To have worked with, and for incredible people is the cherry on top. And to pass that knowledge onto those who seek it… I don’t know what that is, but its really fk'in cool to see someone get it. The current studio, Odelay! is located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Along with the love of my life Jacqueline, we create great things under this big blue prairie sky.
