Donna McCarthy


Originally from Montreal, Donna started her ad career in Toronto at Chiat Day. She worked for lots of agencies (don’t ask) and was Creative Director of several, including Bensimon Byrne and Taxi Advertising. In 2002 Donna moved to Newfoundland to be Creative Director at Target Marketing. She opened her own shop in 2003 and now has offices in both St. John’s and Halifax. 

Donna has been named top female copywriter in Canada four times, and has also ranked as one of Canada’s Top Creative Directors. She has won over 500 awards and has sat on the jury of major national and international award shows, including Cannes, New York Festival, Marketing, Clios and London Festival. 

Something you didn't know about Donna...she used to be a goalie. When she was 16 The Toronto Star wrote an article about her because she went a whole season without letting a puck through the pipes. (so to speak)
