Laura Reynolds L

aura is a creative type who does in her spare time all the other things she doesn’t get paid to do in her job as graphic designer with Studio TGP. These things include, but are not limited to, painting, sketching, knitting, and baking. An Ottawa native, she arrived recently from Toronto, Ontario and fits right into the friendly atmosphere. A graduate from Algonquin College, School of Media and Design, she came to us with 2 diplomas (Photography and Graphic Design) and a wealth of Freelance experience and customer service. Laura is full of ideas, loves the design process and seeing a project go from the start to finish. Nothing makes her happier than handing over a product that clients are overjoyed with.

After decades of mastering photography in all its diversity, with some award-winning publishing and design along the way, our wizard Don was looking for a new adventure and a home for his team of talent. Meanwhile, on the other side of town, Tryna had achieved her own successes and was seeking new challenges and a broader scope for her business. One day, the two collided and Studio TGP was born. We’re a collection of creative types who live to produce results we can be proud of and have fun doing it.  We’re embarrassed to admit how many years of experience some of us can claim but the younger members of our team seem OK with it. Best of both worlds: mature perspective, youthful energy and inspiration. We’re happy. And we think you’ll be happy - with our ideas, our design, our creativity and your experience with us. 


At Studio TGP, we aim to fuel creativity by igniting ideas and manifesting them into reality for businesses, individuals and our community. Our company focuses on unique brand development, website and design services, and effective marketing strategy.  With integrity and passion, we strive to be exceptional communicators with and for our clients.
