There are designers that understand page layout but not web design; those that can create beautiful brochures but cannot manage multiple time-sensitive projects simultaneously; and then there is Phil Kirwin.
An honours graduate of University of Westminster and the Watford College of Art, Phil has impressed some of the world’s largest, busiest and most exacting companies including PA Recruitment Advertising, Arthur Andersen, Amway and SmithKline Beecham. Phil is well accomplished in all aspects of design and typography, self-taught in industry standard design and image manipulation software.
Phil’s award-winning portfolio is a who’s who of some of the world’s most prestigious brands including American Express, AT&T, Coca-Cola, Dell, Disney, Kodak, Metropolitan Police (London, UK), Shell, Virgin and Volkswagen.
Phil’s ten year old company, Chimpanzee, has quickly secured an impressive array of accounts, including Steven Page, Anna Olson, Ontario Science Centre, Plant Specialists and Fielding Estate Winery, to name just a few. Chimpanzee has also achieved Vendor of Record status for the province of Ontario - the only Niagara-based agency to do so.
Phil is also Mr. Social Chimp and heads up all things Facebook, Twitter, etc, for a number of our clients, relationship building and measuring social impact at the same time.
As Phil’s clients will attest, Chimpanzee produces a wide range of creative materials, both print and electronic, with incredible speed, accuracy and market appeal.
Of course, all work and no play would make Phil a very dull boy indeed. When he’s not at work with his first passion, creative design, you’ll likely find Phil teaching his kids the finer art of footy, or soccer to us Canadians, or cheering on his hometown club, Liverpool FC.
