Vida Jurcic

Partner

Vida is a designer and founding partner at Hangar 18. While she won’t divulge years of experience, she has been on numerous competition juries and featured speaker panels. She’s also part of a troupe dedicated to Morris dancing. By our early observations this artform involves sticks, colourful hats and occasional nudity. When she’s not lecturing Dean, Vida lectures art students at Capilano University.

Dean Ponto

Partner

Dean has been with us for some time, but recently became our five-stripe captain and partner. For over 30 years, he has led hundreds of campaigns for regional, national and (likely) galactic clients. He has held several senior creative positions including Creative Director of TBWA/Vancouver. With dozens of industry awards, he’s a well-travelled creative leader that’s pleased to call Hangar 18 home for good.

Lyndsey Jackson

Business Development Manager

As a BCIT BBA Graduate, Lyndsey brings multi-industry sales and customer service experience to the team. As a saleswoman by day and fashion designer by night, Lyndsey has a dynamic background and portfolio. It’s all relative in business, isn’t it? As creative as she is solutions-oriented, Lyndsey will explore all avenues to solve a problem. Then she’ll go home and make you a killer pair of trousers.

Lorill Hancock

Project Manager

As a BCIT Marketing Communications graduate, Lorill brings years of experience in sales, marketing and production. With her creative eye and adaptability, she loves tackling projects with a can-do attitude, much like when she’s coaching her five year old niece’s soccer team. She loves seeing a project through from conception to completion and is passionate about bringing your vision to life through compelling marketing initiatives.

Aly Mireau

Designer

A graduate of Langara's multidisciplinary Design Formation program, Aly first came to Hangar 18 as a bright-eyed graphic design intern, and then wouldn't leave. Aly is as passionate about exploring design solutions as she is about exploring new trails with her trusty hound dog Huxley. With caffeine on her side, Aly tackles projects with enthusiasm and an eye for detail.

Chloë Keogan

Designer

Chloë originally studied Computer and Electrical Engineering at TCD in Ireland, then threw her degree out the window to become a creative intern at a digital agency back in Dublin. In 2015, she came to Vancouver and graduated with Distinction in Graphic Design from BCIT. Chloë is also a self-taught photographer and out-of-the-box thinker who takes on projects with enthusiasm and zest.
