Why a fox?
DANGER's logo is a fox. Foxes have been a major character in mythology and storytelling for generations. Crafty, wily, and known for their ability to blend naturally into any situation, the fox is revered for its wit and intelligence. The DANGER fox is portrayed mid-leap as it dives onto its prey--just like us, the fox is poised for action.
About our Creative Director
Jordan Danger Kent spent the first 10 years of her career in the non-profit sector, working in outreach, program development, and fundraising for notable non-profits like CHEO, YSB, and Pink Triangle Services. Her specialty was identifying target markets, developing relevant products and services for the markets, and creating grassroots marketing campaigns.
In 2010 Jordan masterminded a project called Project: Priceless, with the goal of creating a 150-person wedding as free-of-charge as possible through barter and trade. The project went viral and was covered in international media, culminating in a 150-person wedding valued at approx $40,000; the total cost for the bride and groom was about $200. This project spurred her career move into the commercial marketing world.
For the last 8 years, Jordan has worked as a marketing and communications consultant, strategist, and ‘gun for hire’ with well over 100 startup companies ranging from apps to products and storefronts. She branded herself and her team in 2012 as Danger Communications; it is for Danger Communications’ work that she recently received an Ottawa Forty Under 40 award.
In 2016 she joined the Invest Ottawa team as the Marketing Advisor for SME’s and startups. She then took on a larger role as the Communications and UX Manager for the Early Stage Programs before leaving to spend more time working directly with Small-Medium Enterprise and startups. She also works as a curriculum developer and part time prof at Algonquin College in the School of Media & Design, teaching and writing courses about Digital Community, Digital Content, Marketing, and Business Presentations—with a major focus on pitch presentations.
Jordan is also a freelance journalist and blogger, contributing to most of our major local publications as well as blogs on a larger global scale.
Most recently, Jordan was named one of Ottawa’s Forty Under 40 for 2017.
