Not your typical agency.


Great relationships, great insights and great work. It’s as simple as that. Our core team holds down the fort and runs the show but whenever we need help and or expertise, we bring in our creative and strategic partners who are based across Canada and around the world. This way, our team suits the project and client.

We are great listeners (the key to creating great work) and honest, hard-working people. But don’t take our word for it. See what people are saying about us.

The work we do.

Simple. Memorable. Unexpected.

The team.

keep company with smarter minds and fewer hands.
Our core team complements each other to a tee. They bring together both strategic and creative thinking to deliver solid advice and work to clients both big and small.

To complete our team, Ray hires seasoned specialists from around the world depending on the project or client. Freelance and contract workers give our partners better value and higher-quality work.

Jenny Smith

President, Creative Director

With almost 20 years in the advertising business, Jenny is no stranger to creating internationally recognized, award-winning work. She’s ranked one of the top creatives in Canada and has won hundreds of awards including a few gold Cannes Lions. But unlike most ad veterans across the country, Jenny lives nowhere near Toronto. Or Montreal. Or Vancouver (although she likes shopping in those places).

She has worked on local and international brands including Irving Oil, Air Canada Jazz, Maple Leaf Foods, Atlantic Lottery, McCain Foods, Sobeys, Labatt, Eaton’s, Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism, Ikea, Harry Rosen, Purina, Crime Stoppers, Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corporation, Western union, St. John’s IceCaps, AHL, Opera on the Avalon and many more.

She’s a proud mother of two children, James and Mary. And a big fan of bacon.

Most of all, Jenny loves advertising (but maybe not as much as bacon).


Sherrie Reynolds

Director, Client Services

Sherrie is a lover of Newfoundland and all the wonderful things that come from our province – especially the local food and drink scene (if you ever need restaurant recommendations, call her).

Over the past ten years, she has developed a reputation for providing an uncompromising level of account service, partnership and commitment to her clients. So much so, Ray lured her back from the mainland (we thank our lucky stars every single hour). She is highly strategic, buttoned-down and has been instrumental in the development and production of many successful, award-winning campaigns. Clients love her for all these reasons. They also love her because she’s incredibly cool (and really, really nice).

She’s worked on MasterCard, Whirlpool Appliances, Koodo Mobile, WestJet, AdditionElle, Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corportion and many more.

When she’s not experiencing Canada’s hottest foodie scene, she’s walking her awesome dog, Cora.


Kim Weston

Marketing Manager, Operations

Kim is our office hero. She manages complex projects, schedules, estimates, time sheets and our finances (we thank her daily for this).

In her previous life as a Business Analyst, Kim worked on brands such as Ford, Chrysler, Volkswagen, Fairmont and Ritz Carlton to manage the implementation of digital programs and software that improved the consumer and brand experience.

She most recently assumed operation of a full-service spa and luxury hotel to rebrand the business, inspire a new corporate culture and increase revenue.

But we managed to lure her to the dark agency side. And she’s never looked back. She’s a natural-born marketer with great instincts and a knack for extreme organization.

The best part is that her love for details and excel makes it all look easy (lucky us).


Trevor Kearsey

Creative Technologist

Trevor is an anomaly. He’s honestly the most impressive creative person around. When he’s not developing award-winning websites or coming up with kick-ass campaign ideas, you’ll find him in his shed with wood chips flying as he continues to quench is thirst for creativity (ask him about the guitar stands he most recently made – amazing!).

With over 15 years experience in marketing and an educational background in traditional design, Trevor has created award-winning work for Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism, Parks Canada, The Marine Institute of Memorial University, Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corporation, Fairmont Hotels, Johnson Insurance and Husky Energy.

Whether it’s a custom made game, a complete social media strategy or eye-catching online ads, he has the skillset to execute with confidence.

He hates mediocrity. And loves perfection. He also loves beer.


Terri Roberts

Associate Creative Director

As Associate Creative Director, Terri likes to shake things up, creating powerful marketing solutions for her clients along the way.

With more than 15 years of experience, she’s helped to create successful campaigns for brands like Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism, Maple Leaf, Irving, Air Canada, Brock University, Capital Mitsubishi, MINI St. John’s, RMM, The Cahill Group, and Lamb’s Rum.

One of the most decorated copywriters in Atlantic Canada, Terri has won a host of metal bits and pieces from shows like ICE, CASSIES, London International, Applied Arts, ADCC, Marketing, Extras, Crystals, Media Innovation Awards, Canadian Marketing Awards, HSMAI, Atomic, and Promo Awards.

For fun, Terri designs tea towels, drinks rosé, and hangs out with her giant rescue dog Buckley. She’s also recently discovered surfing, which may or may not end well.


Adam West


If his name conjures up a certain superhero, it’s not by chance. Adam (or Batman as he is known in some circles), is a super web developer, and all around super guy.

Before joining the Ray digital team, Adam spent more than six years developing web and online assets for literally hundreds of clients at Steele Communications. His ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment is just one of the reasons he could actually pull off a cape. A front end and back end developer, Adam knows his way around responsive design, PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, jQuery, CSS preprocessors (Sass), and WordPress. He’s also a skilled graphic designer.

While he literally lives in a digital world both day and night, Adam manages to find time to explore his other passions such as playing guitar, mountain biking, and honing his self-proclaimed skills as a chocolate chip cookie aficionado.

Though Adam is new to the Ray team, we have no idea what we did without him. And we know that the digital world is in a much safer place now that he has arrived.


Cora Dog

Director of Naps / Human Relations

Cora Dog, an industry veteran, has a wide variety of roles within the agency. She adds a calming atmosphere to the office with her delicate tail wags, tiny little meanders, and her love of greeting visitors when she is not asleep (which is most of the time).

On rare occasions when she is awake, she enjoys lying down in warm rays of sun, smelling flowers, and eating carrots. She is also a big fan of Oscar Mayer wiener commercials, and hopes that Ray will someday acquire a hot dog account of our own.

Cora Dog is active on social media. You can follow her whirlwind tour through life on Instagram (#coradog).
