Hi, it's Cai!
(my named is pronounced “Kai” like “Cairo”:)
WAYS TO CONNECT WITH ME    
Please reach out to me at: hello@caisepulis.com

CREDENTIALS: a thinker and a doer! 
Having been doing this gig for nearly 20 years, my work and inspiration comes from my diverse background including a philosophy degree, some time in film school, an architecture degree, work as an Art Director for a multi-national advertising agency and I'm currently accredited by RGD Ontario as a Registered Graphic Designer and I co-own/design TOQUE Magazine. I have a forever love of drawing maps, architecture/old buildings and conceptual pieces that make you think. My work is lively, whimsical, iconic with a touch of vintage vibes. I'm based just outside Toronto Canada and I welcome speaking and teaching engagements.
