Outthinking

We like to think a lot. And then we like to Outthink.

Outthinking, in its simplest form, is where we access an “outsider” (i.e. someone outside of both advertising and our client’s industry) to help broaden or shift perspective on a given project. Based on the business or creative challenge at hand, we source the most appropriate outside expert to be the Outthinker and tap into thousands of hours worth of expertise. This allows for fresh, yet relevant insights to help build your brand.

To find out more about how Outthinking works, please contact Gino at g.cantalini@giantsandgents.com.

Natalie Armata R.G.D.

Co-Founder &
Creative Director

Alanna Nathanson

Co-Founder &
Creative Director

Natalie and Alanna are among those rare creatives who actually love business, so…they started one. Giants & Gentlemen was founded on a philosophy they’ve practiced their entire careers: do brave work that stands out, ego-free. Their drive to nurture young talent and push for excellence is a testament to all of the work that leaves the agency. Accolades have come quickly, including a Gold Bessie for Days Inn Canada. In past lives, Natalie and Alanna have worked on brands in just about every category, winning just about every award in the process. And if you think they’re competitive in business, wait until you witness their karaoke rap battles.

Gino Cantalini

Co-Founder &
Chief Strategy Officer

Gino understands clients because he was one for 18 years, in senior leadership positions at places like Colgate, Campbell's Soup and TELUS. This explains his obsession with work that gets results. At G&G, his sharp insights inspire smart work for all of our clients. Like all great strategists, Gino knows a lot about a lot but still loves diving through piles of research to strike gold, which he has many times on the awards circuit. As a Brand Director at Labatt, he earned two Cannes Lions Awards and was named Marketing Magazine's "Marketer that Matters". But you can call him what we do—"Tim Bits Guy".
