Grant Gordon

President and Creative Director, Key Gordon Communications

Grant Gordon is President and Creative Director of Key Gordon Communications Inc.

In 2001, after over a dozen years of working for national ad agencies, Grant broke away from the mainstream to found Key Gordon Communications Inc. An advertising and design firm based in Toronto, Key Gordon was the first creative agency in North America to focus exclusively on the branding and marketing of socially and environmentally responsible companies.

Since the firm's inception, Key Gordon has stuck slavishly to its motto "Branding the good guys". The company has worked on everything from alternative energy and organic food to arts organizations, philanthropy and social change programs. Together with Sir Richard Branson and Virgin, Key Gordon created FLICK OFF, the award-winning global warming activism campaign. Key Gordon's clients include The Shaw Festival, the McMichael Art Gallery, Butterfield & Robinson, the Canadian MedicAlert Foundation, Yukon Tourism and a host of ENGOs.

Grant is an active public speaker on topics relating to advertising and design, sustainability, ethical marketing, healthy food, and renewing the political process in Canada. In 2012, he was the Liberal candidate in the Toronto—Danforth by-election.

Grant lives in Toronto with his wife Gill Deacon and their three boys.
