Client-Centric Solutions

At Tooth and Nail we never forget that the discipline of design is an applied art. Though we have a track record of delivering award-winning design, in every case we begin by addressing the needs of our clients and their stakeholders.

Time and again our clients have told us that the value we provide is unsurpassed. Our commitment to tailored solutions is but one hallmark of the ownership we take in the projects we undertake for our clients. For us, the true measure of success on every project is how well it meets your needs, and the results it achieves for you.

Our Team

Tooth & Nail Design was formed as the culmination of two top creative minds: Dawn McClintock and Martin Anderson-Clutz. We have over fourty years of design experience, and numerous awards that testify to our commitment to deliver top-quality solutions.

Martin Anderson-Clutz

Martin’s expertise lies in strategically-driven creative, and complex technical execution. In his early days in the industry, Martin garnered a reputation as a long document specialist, with a demonstrated ability to rationalize the production process, achieving both higher quality and faster turnarounds.

In his seven years of web design experience, Martin has demonstrated a deep understanding of both interface design, as well as the underlying technical issues for optimal web construction. Along the way he has mastered such diverse technologies as Flash, PHP, MySQL, HTML, JavaScript, and CGI/Perl. Martin recently achieved status as a Zend Certified Engineer, proving he has substantial knowledge of PHP across a variety of critical topics, including database interaction, debugging, performance management, best practices, and security.

Martin has honed his skills for clients such as Vigoro, So-Green, Pfizer Animal Health, Kawasaki Canada, and the Ivey School of Business.

Dawn McClintock

Flexibility and innovative solutions are the hallmarks of Dawn’s extensive design career. Her experience spans such diverse areas as logo and corporate identity, advertising, print, packaging, and book design. Dawn has done work for such clients as Sony Music Canada, Kawasaki Canada, the Western Fair, A&W Restaurants, BMG Music Canada, Bernardin Canning Company, Primo Foods, Canadian Standards Association, EMI Music Canada, Hoover, and the Ministry of the Environment.
