  • Clients

We handcraft digital experiences for the web in all its emerging forms. Born in 2004, we’ve come to be known for the work we do with high-end hospitality brands. Though despite the rumors, we work with organizations in a broad range of industries.

We abide by the following tenets:

Focus on the planning
Design doesn’t start and end in Photoshop. It starts with a clear objective, an actionable plan, and a solution that delivers the intended result. Paramount to our process is the articulation of goals and a clear path to the solution.

Solve holistically
The website is the hub of the digital marketing strategy, but it lives amidst a myriad of emerging channels that must be considered during the strategic planning phase.

Art + Science
Your message should capture the attention and emotion of your customers using strong visual elements, but the science of evidence-based refinement will drive the long-term return on your digital investment.

Use less stuff
Design requires focus in order to cut through the ever-increasing noise in your customers’ everyday lives.

Don’t reinvent the wheel
Minimize risk, complexity, and cost by developing on trusted open-source frameworks and platforms.

Mobile matters
The web will continue to emerge through new forms, devices and mediums. Digital projects must be developed today, to solve the problems of tomorrow.

We don’t pretend to know everything. So we’ve developed some great partnerships with like-minded companies that deliver the quality and attention to detail that clients expect from Wallop.

Geoff Agnew

Art Director

Geoff is our Art Director and drives many of the creative decisions for our studio. Originally from Toronto, Geoff came west to free himself from the shackles of Southern Ontario winters. With a background in editorial design Geoff brings strong conceptual thinking and typographic finesse to the Wallop team. He is responsible for art direction, design and front-end development.

Stephen Saugestad


Stephen is the principal at Wallop. His atypical blend of Norwegian and Japanese heritage provides the keen acumen and pragmatic thinking needed to navigate the stormy seas of digital. Over thirteen years, he's evolved through the digital space as a search marketer, interactive designer, front-end developer, and a business steward. Stephen has shaped the digital strategy for organizations large and small from all over the world, most of them luxury brands in hospitality. Outside of the studio, Stephen pretends to be a surfer and photographer.

Ryan Clarke

Director of Business Development

Ryan heads up business development for the studio and is involved in the early phases of our projects to help determine strategy and goals. He has an MBA, but don’t hold that against him, it comes in handy when setting KPI’s and other important buzzwords. When he’s not at work, he’s taking pictures, playing golf, or getting lost in the mountains. Ryan grew up in the charming town of Parry Sound, Ontario. He is based in Montreal. Son français laisse fort à désirer.
