Justin works on many of our high-stakes public, media and stakeholder relations files, and helps set the direction of many of our projects. He has an almost evangelical commitment to linking communications work to the business objectives of the clients we work for, ensuring that we’re always helping them move in the right direction. He is also responsible for the management of the agency, making sure we pay our bills and our clients pay theirs.
Michael has many years of experience in the accounts, strategy and creative departments in agencies. He is known as one of the best there is in teasing out insights about audiences and issues, and then using them to develop nuanced messages that get clients the results they need. He is involved in nearly everything that comes out of our shop, ensuring that we’re delivering high quality, smart, strategic work every time.
Amy is the day-to-day manager of most of the work that happens around here. She works with the account team and the creative team to make sure we do what we said by the time we said we would. She’s also a highly skilled and experienced communicator, having worked as a Communications Director at the Alberta Legislature and also for several years at City Hall in a Councillor’s office. Once in a while you can still find her pulling beers at The Next Act pub, a favourite spot for many advertising and creative types in town.
Ashleigh can get up at 5:00 AM and go to the gym, if you want an idea of how disciplined she is. Prior to working at Berlin she worked at the Legislature, first doing research and bill briefs for MLAs, and then in the Premier’s Office in the issues management group. She has a nuanced understanding of government and stakeholder relations which she often puts to use working on communications and advocacy plans for our clients. She’s a solid writer and savvy strategic thinker.
Abby has a degree in humanities with an English focus and recently completed the public relations program at MacEwan University.

Elizabeth is a very thoughtful and diligent designer. She likes to spend a lot of time digging into the brief and making sure she understands the client problem that our work is meant to solve. Before joining the agency world she worked as an in-house designer at the U of A, after completing a B.Des degree there. She is that altogether rare specimen—a designer who can also write—and occasionally gets involved on the strategy and copywriting side of our client accounts.
Carson’s strengths lie in digital media, interface design, and branding. He started out as a photographer and now found a passion in design. Millennials, right? Carson is also the most internet-famous Berliner, with 30,000 Instagram followers. He posts pictures of his outdoor adventures, which is how he likes to spend his weekends. He has become the resident authority on science-related arguments at the office despite having no training or expertise in that area.
