2021 ALBUM ARTWORK OF THE YEAR | Jared Barter (Art Director & Designer), Michael Zavacky (Art Director & Illustrator), Maryn Devine and Rémi Thériault (Photographers) | | The JUNO Awards

Jared Barter and Michael ZEKE Zavacky are a design duo based out of Ottawa, Ontario. They have collaborated on numerous award-winning creative projects over the span of twenty years. Together, they share a passion for 60’s folk music, silk-screen poster design and old plaid shirts.

Rémi is a gallery artist, director and award-winning photographer best known for his engaging visual storytelling. Whether he’s capturing intimate moments for personal projects or the vibrant expressions of his commercial clients, the finely curated aesthetic and attention to detail that have propelled Rémi to the top of his field are always present. He is also well-versed in leading production teams on large video projects, both in Canada and in the United States. His clients include Shopify, the Government of Canada, the National Arts Centre and Billboard magazine. Rémi has never met a dad joke he didn’t like.

Maryn started at HoC back in 2017 when she was still just an interning student. She has since gone on to graduate from her photography program with honours, was awarded Best Portfolio in her graduating class, and has become an emerging talent and invaluable asset to our team. We call Maryn our “rockstar”, not only because of her love of 70’s rock n’ roll, but also because she kicks butt.”
