Where wild ideas take shape

(for art, entertainment, technology, and everything in between)

Wild Forest is a place, a space, and a metaphor for the untamed and forever-wandering childhood imagination where tales and fables roam free in a land of make believe. As an art and design studio we strive to live and create with this uninhibited frame of mind.

The Rangers

Bram Timmer

Creative Director

Bram Timmer is a creative director and designer with over 15 years in the digital and integrated brand experience space. In addition to his design career, he’s the founding director of CAMP Festival and actively maintains a multi-faceted art career. Recently, Bram created public art projects for the City of Calgary, produced a public experiential project for TD Canada Trust, led stellar teams of photographers and video crews to cover celebrity-packed events, designed and directed creative for events around the world, and even designed for the New York City Mayor’s Office and the US State Department if you can believe it. After years of being a lone wolf, freelancing from a range of different cities on brands that span the globe, and taking part in the extracurricular activities offered by the school of life, Bram finally found his roots at Wild Forest.
