About us


The doors of Foundry opened in 2006. Today, it is owned by two founding partners with deep roots in the Calgary creative community. Prior to Foundry, Alison Wattie was owner of Bottega Design Group, a longstanding Calgary design firm. Zahra Al-Harazi was a creative director and visual communications lead with an advertising agency.

Our core competencies cover all aspects of communication design including: brand strategy, implementation and nurturance; corporate, investor and public relations; marketing collateral; multimedia and web-based projects; environmental graphics; and advertising.

At Foundry we share a serious dedication to our craft, and to the clients that we work with. We’re continually looking around corners, searching for what’s next, and finding inspiration that leads to ingenious results and solutions that make their mark.
