Phil Emery is a highly experienced Art Director, Graphic Designer and Podcaster with over 25 years of real-world experience.

Starting as the sole designer for an artisanal offset printing company, Phil spent 8 years mastering every step of the design and production process: from meeting with clients, through art direction, spec’ing paper, design and production, right down to burning plates for the press and giving the final OK as the sheets came off the press.

His company, the Focused Creative, a boutique graphic design practice, with offices in St. John’s, NL and Toronto, specializes in helping B2B and B2C clients with complex or hard-to-understand offerings increase sales, gain market share quickly and build ROI.
