How do we do it? It comes down to our moral code. 

Be kind. 

Kindness comes in many forms, but in business it means listening to a client with compassion and authenticity. It also translates into respecting the demanding lives they have as leaders in business, non-profits, industry and new digital spaces. What else? We lead by example doing pro bono work and volunteering as community builders. 

Work hard.

Or maybe we should say, ‘work smart’. We have developed a simple, streamlined creative process that is both collaborative and cost-effective. It works because we are a small, dedicated team of talented, highly-skilled professionals who believe more in making a difference to a client’s business than in billable hours. There, we said it. 

Stay excellent. 

What is excellence in graphic design? It’s nothing less than being able to sleep at night, knowing we have done great work with integrity. It even comes through in our workplace, a converted heritage building where our small team (and office dog) are in constant, collaborative communication with each other to achieve creative greatness. (Except for the dog.)

ABOUT OUR FOUNDER

Lissa Constantine is often described as a human firebrand. And by that, we mean that she sets hearts and minds alight with her vision, energy and zest for life. 
Lissa Constantine is often described as a human firebrand. And by that, we mean that she sets hearts and minds alight with her vision, energy and zest for life. 
A self-taught, award-winning graphic designer, Lissa founded BirdDog Design in 1995. From the start, she was determined to make a difference. A product of the self-directed, endlessly curious Generation X, she eschewed traditional approaches from the start, preferring to establish herself as creative dynamo amidst a plethora of staid graphic design firms. From her first jobs creating iconic brands for most of Ottawa’s historic ByWard Market’s hippest restaurants, Lissa has delivered on her personal credo: great design comes before trends and fads. Lissa is the winner of the Ottawa Business Journal’s prestigious 40 Under 40 Award. In 2013, she was nominated as WBN Business Woman of the Year. She’s been a member of the Ottawa Executives’ Association since 2010. She currently sits on its Board of Directors.
