Caitlin Wharton Trout

Creative director

Caitlin’s days are happily spent as Creative Director at T+T. Her real creative credentials come from endless hours with a paintbrush and a glass of wine (but if you’re into the paper creds then you should know she graduated from UofC, ACAD, and Parsons). When not hiding behind her giant computer screen, Caitlin is trying to find mountains to hike in Toronto with her cute blind dog Oscar and her cute husband Mike (not blind).

 

Aislinn Taylor

STRATEGY

Ais has a business brain, a bluesky vision and a penchant for 90s R+B. Bringing her degree from Mount Royal University’s Entrepreneurship program along for the ride, Ais innovates constantly to ensure that all of T+Ts clients are ridiculously happy (and ensures that all of T+T’s bank accounts are ridiculously happy). When she’s not developing business, Ais is playing guitar, hanging with her huz, drinking scotch or going to spin class; not all at the same time, but she’s sure tried.

 

Jadel Baldrey

OPERATIONS

Armed with enough organizational skills to orchestrate a space craft liftoff, Jadel is the gal at T+T who keeps shit together. Her hard skills come from her years of experience working at a residential building and interior design firm and her education from Mount Royal University in Business Administration. When she’s not scheduling timelines, Jadel can be found at home with a glass of white wine and watercolours… and let’s be honest here, watching reruns of the bachelor/ette.

 

Amy Esplen

graphic designer

Powered by a cocktail of equal parts craft beer and inspiration, Amy is an Ontario-born graphic designer with a knack for creating hilariously adorable illustrations. She brings her passion for design to the team and her flare for anything colourful. When she's not mastering the art of animation or creating 7 foot wide wooden boob sculptures (ask her about it), you can find Amy trying to fit both her dogs in her hammock with her, secretly wishing she was screen-printing t-shirts instead.

 

Madison Newey

graphic designer

Madison leaves her ever expanding plant collection at home to rock her day job at Trout + Taylor's HQ as a graphic designer. Her passion for all-weather biking apparel is only closely won out by her love for creating quirky pun-ridden illustrations. When she's not creating jaw dropping designs, you can find Madison getting lost on her little silver bicycle in the busy streets of Toronto or reaching new literal heights on the bouldering wall. We tried to include a pun in her bio but didn't succeed. Sorry Madison.
