OUR TEAM IS OFTEN ASKED,

WHY THE NAME OVERTHEATLANTIC?

Here’s an explanation from Joseph Mansourian, Managing Director and founding partner of our agency:

 

Most of my travel in life involved flying over the Atlantic Ocean. There is a sense of helplessness when flying over the open ocean. There is no control – just clouds and water beneath you. It’s an exhilarating feeling and should never be taken for granted. As I grew older, I realized it wasn’t a feeling of helplessness, rather a disconnection from reality.

 

That disconnection gives you time to reflect on anything and everything all at once.

 

There is no park, café, library, living room or office that offers that much inspiration and focus. Being up there teaches us about perspective and what is really important.

 

There’s a sense of romanticism in the scenery and process of flight,and there’s adrenalin for the anticipation of arrival. We arrive somewhere to start, recharge and reflect.

For me, this journey begins over the Atlantic.

 

The name was conceptualized in 2006. The company was incorporated in 2008.

BEING GOOD NEIGHBOURS

YOU CAN’T HAVE A PLAYDAY WITHOUT PIZZA!

In spring of 2010, our office became aware that the students at St. David’s Elementary (in Sudbury, Ontario) would not receive any food, drinks, or snacks as part of their annual Playday.  We believe every child deserves pizza on Playday because it was a part of our childhood – so, we did something about it.

 

After a rewarding experience, we committed to annually sponsoring high-risk schools in our community by founding the Pizza 4 Playday initiative.  It supports schools in our city that have a high ratio of children who come from low-income families by providing pizza, drinks and snacks for their Playday activities.  The true objective of this initiative is to encourage our clients, friends and business partners to discover and invent new giving opportunities.

 

Each year donations to support our annual costs have allowed us to expand and add more schools. In 2016 we’re sponsoring five (5) schools in the community. It is an unbranded presence in our neighbourhood schools that helps children celebrate a happy moment in their life.

 

HELP US CELEBRATE THE HAPPY MOMENTS!

This year would be the 5th anniversary of Pizza 4 Playday and we could use your support. If you are interested in helping out or providing funds to purchase pizza please contact Jana Van de Rydt by email, jana@overtheatlantic.com or get in touch here.

OvertheAtlantic was founded by having candid discussions with business leaders, future leaders and a host of inspired individuals in our community. We built this company into what it is today because these people trusted our junior experience.

TODAY, WE’RE NORTHERN ONTARIO’S LEADING CREATIVE COMPANY.

 

Imagine a company that gives nearly 15% of their billable time back to the community. OvertheAtlantic has been doing that since Day 1. For 6 years we've been hand-selecting organizations, new small business ventures, independent artists and community groups in Northern Ontario and giving them access to the best creative talent in the North.

 

We believe in a strong Northern Ontario and all of its potential.

 

Sitting in on our weekly production meeting, you would hear of several projects on-the-go for pro bono clients. These projects could include: creating a multi-platform creative campaign for a business advocacy organization, handling artwork for a recording artist’s debut album, posters for a high school musical, or designing a new logo for a new restaurant in town.
