Paul Joyce (Creative Director)

Paul Joyce is the Creative Director and VP Communications of Polar Unlimited, based in Burlington, Ontario. Polar specializes in customer experience management, innovation consulting and digital strategy.

Born in Belfast and raised in Australia, Paul eventually set down roots in Canada. Climbing his way through the ranks from the mailroom floor is far too cliché for Paul’s taste, but that’s exactly what happened. From the mailroom, Paul went on to senior posts at some of Canada’s largest and most respected advertising/design agencies such as Cossette, Maclaren McCann and MC Direct.

Along the way Paul has created award-winning campaigns for many clients, including RBC Royal Bank, Bell, CenturyTel, Scotiabank, General Motors, 3M, Hamilton Health Sciences, McDonald’s, Rogers, The Bank of Bermuda, Mt.Sinai Hospital and Reliance Home Comfort.

Paul’s clients will tell you that he has the unique ability to create ideas that not only capture your attention, but that make it seem like they were created for you and you alone.

Paul is a frequent speaker and presenter. He has twice presented at the Canadian Marketing Association’s National Convention, presented to T.E.C. groups and has been a senior judge at both the Canadian Marketing Association and DMA in New York. Paul is an active member of his community with past involvement with the Big Brothers of Metro Toronto and now the Kids’ Health Links Foundation (an organization founded by TEC Chair Basile Papaevangelou).

Paul lives outside Toronto with his wife Natalija and two young children.
