WE ARE A CREATIVE AGENCY WITH HEART.

YES. WE SAID HEART. WE WORK WITH ORGANIZATIONS WHOSE MISSIONS LIGHT US UP. SOME PEOPLE SCOFF AND CALL US A BUNCH OF NUTTY IDEALISTS. WE PREFER “GUTSY SOBs”.

 

From day one in mom’s basement with a coffee table desk, our mission has been to do business differently. To use our talents for good not evil. And to use Flipside as a vehicle for do-gooding. So we do just that.

We are a Certified B Corporation

We are a part of a global movement of corporations with heart who have committed to creating a better way to do business. Inc. Magazine calls B Corps the highest standard in socially responsible business.” We’ve decided to use our company as a force for good.

WE ARE OFFICE-LESS – BY CHOICE! (SERIOUSLY)

On May 1, 2015 our team boldly, defiantly, and perhaps crazily embarked on what we like to call The Office Shmoffice Experiment – a 365-day pursuit of an unapologetically different and joyfully disruptive way of doing business. It stuck. We’re not “remote workers”. Lame. No, we’re all working together, living life to the fullest, and choosing to let our office be where the work gets done the best.

Follow our journey on our blog. It’s a hoot.

WE GIVE BACK.

We feel fairly blessed to have talent and people who want to pay us to come up with ideas all day. So we give our talent whenever we can.

WE RUN THE GREAT SANDWICH MAKE.

The Great Sandwich Make is our rogue charitable initiative. We call up all the people we know and lots that we don’t know, and make healthy, delicious, and nutritious kits for the less fortunate in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side. In 2016, we made and delivered 902 kits with 1000 healthy homemade sandwiches, juice, treats, chips, nuts, snacks, toiletries, socks, gloves, deodorants, toothbrushes, and a “You Matter” note. Every year, we are humbled by the experience. To get involved in our next event, email Kim.

RAINCITY HOUSING IS OUR HEART.

We donate up to 20% of our team’s time and talent to RainCity Housing & Support Society because we believe that they are making a substantial difference in our community. Their mandate is to create a home for every person. They do this by operating shelters and transitional housing for those experiencing homelessness, addiction, and mental illness in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. They do this with love, sensitivity, positivity, innovation, guts, and very little glory. We think they’re the nicest.

WE ARE A SOCIAL GOOD DESIGN AWARD WINNER.

Every year, the Association of Registered Graphic Designers (RGD) invites submissions of graphic design projects done under the theme of communication design for social good; work with the power to incite action and make meaningful change in the way we live our lives. In 2014, we won a Social Good Design Award for our work with BC Parks on the Golden Spruce Trail signage. We are so proud.

Kim is our Chief Creative Renegade

Her brain never stops. Ever. She is a creative addict who loves to strategize, write, create, and give back. Her vision has always been simple and she makes no apologies for it: To do great work for good people. No jerks. She fired the last accountant who told her that charitable work would get her nowhere fast. “He has no balls,” she said.

With green juice in one hand, a whiteboard marker in the other, and a  backpack full of Vega bars, Kim leads the team to wild and wonderful creative places that leave our clients in awe and their customers wanting more.

Miranda is Lead Creative Renegade

Miranda looks at design as an opportunity to tell a story. Whether she’s whipping up a killer business card or a full-blown marketing campaign, she always asks herself “Is this an effective communication tool.” She doesn’t rest her keen creative eye until the answer is a resounding “Yes!”

She has an affinity for typesetting and for cats. She’s supercool so we try not to judge her for the latter.

Connect with Miranda:

Leah is our Chief Digital Renegade

Leah is an online marketing genius ripe with fresh strategies, a wizard-like approach to content, a ceritification in optimization (the girl put in some SERIOUS hours), and an insatiable mind. She has a proven track record of re-engineering lacklustre websites into revenue-generating machines. Bam! Leah is hilarious, honest, and wicked smart.

She's a digital and content know-it-all (in a non-annoying way) and she builds engagement campaigns on multiple channels that turn likes into dollars. She “gets” the wild, woolly online world and reins it in to map client success.

Nataal is a Creative Renegade

She is pure creative genius bottled up in a temple of cool. Nataal is a creative chameleon who can pull off any style – pretty, ornate, corporate, ballsy, wacky, reserved, bold. She knows how to read a client and create work that blows them away and propels their business forward.

Nataal is also a gifted photographer, a fashionista (without the ego), and one of the coolest people we know. Sometimes, we think we’re not worthy.

Lucy is a Creative Renegade

Lucy is scads of creative versatility jam-packed in a sweet British-accented package. She has HUGE talent and all kinds of humour. Lucy is a graphic designer whose heart patters for beautiful photography, gorgeous textiles, and pancakes en masse.

Lucy builds community wherever she goes. She leads with kindness and a cuppa joe, travels extensively, and is the kinda girl you can call at 3 in the morning – to cry, party, work, or play. She amazes us.

Harley is our Resident Bitch

Harley was the real boss around here, and always responded favourably to pig ears, biscuits, and belly rubs. She left us June 6 to run circles and bark at mailmen in the sky. Still every now and again we hear a faint bark and get a whiff of something ripe, and we know she's with us—making sure we're not taking ourselves too seriously and always have fun. RIP Harley.

 

WE STARTED THIS BUSINESS IN 2006 WITH ONE FIRM CONVICTION:

ELEVATE COMPANIES WITH HEART.

So we drew a line in the sand. Actually, we drew it in cement. We only do work for companies that we truly believe are run by nice people, that are doing good things in the world, in our community, and in their offices, and that are exceedingly kind and honest in their business dealings. As a result, we have the distinct pleasure of using our talents for good not evil every day. Which is pretty cool. Working with nice people helps us continue our quest to be nicer too. We’re a B Corporation. We give back like it’s a religion. We never hire jerks. And we always welcome pop-bys – because meeting strangers is fun and nobody pops by any more. Bring juice.
