Devon Bortscher - Managing Director and Marketing Strategist - SAVIAN

Devon Bortscher / Managing Director

Devon is an experienced strategist, marketing expert and all-around nice guy… except that we just realized we were describing someone else. Devon is the founder of SAVIAN. We don’t really know what he does around here, so let’s just assume he’s nice to have around.

Camryn Boechler - Design Director, Web Designer, Illustrator - SAVIAN

Camryn Boechler / Design Director

Meet Cam, the creative genius behind our design agency. Cam’s designs will leave you in awe, but don’t be surprised if you see him taking a nap in the corner of the office. He’s not being lazy, he’s just accessing his creativity in dreamland. Despite the constant yawns, doodles on napkins, and other narcoleptic tendencies, Cam’s passion for design never fades. He always manages to deliver exceptional work, even while he’s sleeping.

Jace Boechler - Illustrator, Designer - SAVIAN

Jace Boechler / Illustrator

Jace is a great person to talk to. He also likes to talk… A lot. We’ve created policies and procedures on how to handle conversation so as to not disrupt the workflows within a 100m radius of where Jace is situated at all times. He’s also super talented at illustration. While he can’t draw in his sleep, he’s quite adept at drawing while talking. Oh, and he’s also developing a game on the side, ‘Little Hellions’, which is set to come out… some time! We’ll let you know.

Chad Calapre, Lead Developer at SAVIAN

Chad Calapre / Programmer

Meet Chad, the programmer who’s code is so clean, you could eat off of it… if you are into that kind of thing. Chad is a master at making the impossible possible, using his programming skills to bring our clients’ wildest design dreams to life. He’s also been known to debug relationships and solve the mysteries of the universe during lunch breaks. Just don’t ask him to pick a font.

Andrew Hlushak - Animator, Videographer, Video Editor - SAVIAN

Andrew Hlushak / Animator

If there is a ticket to be won, a giveaway to claim, a celebrity to meet backstage, or some kind of small lottery to win, Andrew is the person winning all of the above. We’re not sure what he did in a past life to be so lucky, but it’s definitely paying off. Andrew is an animator, video editor, and videographer. His charisma can be seen through concrete walls and his skills with After Effects have been written about by scholars across the globe.


Wilson / Best Friend

Meet Wilson – the friend who washed up on our shore. After years of being stranded on a deserted island, Wilson is finally making a comeback in the design world. With his unmistakable face and impressive survival skills, Wilson is sure to be a valuable asset to our agency. We just can’t make him do any team building exercises involving rafts. He’s still a little bitter about that whole “deserted island” thing.
