My name is Aden Abebe. I am an Artist, Photographer, Writer, Creative Director and Project Manager based in Toronto, Canada. I also own a boutique creative design agency, Mez Creatives, that services small & medium-sized businesses with design and marketing materials.
My passions lie at the intersection of art, empowerment and social justice. Whether it be screenwriting for an original series, creating conceptual photo-essays on mental health, directing commercials for government campaigns, or managing the brand & communications of a not-for-profit organization, I address every project with enthused optimism for the possibilities of what can be created.
Community focused and community inspired, Aden pursues art as a means not an end, and always has a greater vision for where her art can take her and her community. She wants to see her community heal and aims to create art that is part of that process by telling untold stories and prompting critical discussion.
Aden is a natural storyteller. She has an intuitive ability to brand and market people, their products and businesses in a way that appeals to the eye and to the heart. Her experience working in marketing, combined with a natural eye for design and visual communication techniques has made her a trusted voice among managers and executives. Aden is invested in the success of her clients and is uncompromising in her ambition to achieve it. Currently, she is working with start-up companies, entrepreneurs and artists to develop their personal and professional brands.
