We always talked about building a company around the idea of building relationships.

Since launching in 2013, we have built a team of people that care, maybe even too much, because we know that building lasting relationships is an integral part of building lasting brands. This knowledge informs our approach to business.

Fancy exists to help businesses provide more meaningful consumer experiences through formative strategies, captivating brand narratives and inventive art-based design.


Our arsenal of services has been developed to suit your creative needs.

It’s about using the abilities and aptitudes we have developed to help you establish or develop your visual identity, craft your consumer’s experience, and generate profit.

Taylor Pfeifer
UX & Art Director

Since he was young, Taylor has been fascinated by the world of art and how it relates to business and human behaviour. In high school, this translated into a cause-related non profit art movement called Provadenic (Spanish for “Provide a Refuge”). Following high school, Taylor studied graphic & web design at the Art Institute of Orange County, California. After launching Fancy, he also played a key role in starting Outlaw Metal Fabrication, and opening Wallstreet Common, a coworking and mixed office space in downtown Saskatoon. He brings diverse experience in the graphic design, user experience, and corporate branding industries. He wields an impressive resumé, and is well known for his keen aesthetic eye and exceptional work ethic. His skills are desired by many, making Fancy a popular topic of conversation in design circles.
