Pam Danowski

Creative Director
GUT Toronto
Toronto, Canada

I am an Associate Creative Director at Gut Toronto.

I have worked on mass, social, and digital campaigns for many well-loved brands, including Dove, Huggies, Kotex, American Express, Pizza Hut, and Tim Hortons.

My work has been recognized by Cannes, D&AD, One Show, ADCC, Eurobest, Epica, CA, CA Interactive, CMA, and more. I also had a poster for The Dove Self-Esteem Project make it into the Megan Markle special on 60-minutes Australia.

My goal is to create a collaborative and friendly work environment where young creatives feel inspired, valued, nurtured, and heard.

It's important to me to lead with empathy and work with a team that reflects the true diversity of the country I call home.
