BRANDS WE’VE SHOT FOR
Project Management / Agency Experience
A creative entrepreneur and digital project manager with years of experience with Toronto’s best agencies and startups.
Klick Health is one of Canada’s top agencies ushering the world’s biggest names in health into the digital age, and I’m proud to have worked on their PMO team.
For Joyous Health, Hubest proposed new technology that would automate the website’s engagement ad transactions. Content throughout the site is dynamic, based on aggregated trending data across the three core sections of the site: the blog, members’ area, and e-commerce.
Anchored on the idea “work hard, live well”, the website was developed to visually express the city’s hustle and healthy lifestyle while keeping the medical aspect top-of-mind. The Integra Health team invested into a custom video b-roll for the website, which we encoded to work on every browser.
Managed: Concepting, Branding, Creative and Development;
A website that speaks to a global audience of prospective students, the faculty’s needs, and a streamlined enrolment process supported by user-friendly navigation, a custom UI/UX design, and a specially developed back-end. It also accounts for translation into 13 languages and a unique pricing matrix that varies by location, study term, and program.
Managed: Creative and Development;
Designed to be as scalable and user-friendly to both administrators and users as possible, our work for Women In Payments centered around a completely custom content management system. Administrators are now able to incorporate new countries and subdomains, and manage all event programs, speakers, and registrations.
Managed: Working closely with AOR and Development;
The concept Hubnest suggested was simple: Let’s get the book illustrator involved. After working with the content provided by The Blood Mile’s graphic artist, three different original concept layouts were created for our client. The result is an interactive and book preview experience on all devices, made possible by a completely custom e-reader and video-overlays. To complete the experience, we also developed a smooth online payment process.

For Cyberderm founder Sara, sunscreen doesn’t have to be scarily clinical—it can be a fashion-forward lifestyle product. This vision informed the website revamp, which included a more user-friendly way of displaying the product’s ingredients, a Health Guide that recommended sunscreens by skin type, and a store locator.
Managed: Creative and Development;
We often have little idea of the inspiration strangers can afford us. KTCHN Stories is where my team and I interview everyday subjects, and explore just how capable we all are of living through the extraordinary.
Memories, conversations, talismans. Call me a sentimental survivalist, but I’ve always been fanatical about the objects that inform our past, and how we might make sense of them in a post-apocalyptic future. Pay close attention to this space as this idea unfolds.
MY MUSIC PICKS
Snippets of my life and adventures abroad. Including but not limited to arguments overheard in airports. Unfamiliar desserts recommended by local restauranteurs. Free advice from rickshaw drivers. Out-of-this-world outfits by city club kids. Stories passed along generation after generation. It’s all in here.
That’s me: Katy Chan. Open-minded, ready, and curious. If you have the beginnings (or the middle, even ends) of an idea you’d like to collaborate on, feel free to reach out using any of the platforms below.
