In 2014, Tracy Khamis founded Fiscal Performance Inc., an advanced bookkeeping service based out of Stoney Creek, Ontario. They also share an office with us. That’s because Blend and Fiscal Performance are more than just close: we’re family.
One (presumably stormy) night, back in 2014, Tracy and Ali sat down together and, over a cup or several of fancy coffees, began working on a brand identity for Tracy’s new venture. Those conversations became sketches, which became concepts, which became a logo, which became everything a business needs to function: business cards, a website, social media assets, print materials, and more. Seven years later, Fiscal Performance Inc.’s brand is as exciting and personal as it was when Tracy and Ali first started working on it.
We’ve been there for each other through thick and thin, sharing office spaces and competing to see who drinks the most coffee (Fiscal has us beat every tax season). It’s that relationship that makes us stronger and better together than we ever could be apart.

I have had the pleasure of working with Blend on a number of projects over the last 8 years. Ali and his team brings an amazingly creative mind to the table and delivers above and beyond what is expected. Their attention to detail and willingness and eagerness to work with clients definitely makes projects flow seamlessly. Without a doubt, I endorse Ali Khamis and Blend Creative Studio.
Director, Special Events & Sponsorship
The most noteworthy aspect of working with Ali is how quickly he 'got' what I was looking to do. He then was able to tranlate my ambiguous communication, multiple ideas/notions and vage references into a masterpiece so that I could say "that's it" - even though I wouldn't have known what I was looking for until I saw it. Ali is a gifted designer and has a talented extended network of others who can turn your idea into a commercial reality that is has style, sizzle and 'stickiness'

Ali and the rest of the Blend Creative Studio. team truly deserve more than the "top 3" limit with respect to attributes that I can select. Personable, professional, extremely knowledgeable and talented, Ali has truly made our visions come true! Ali translated our disjointed and uninformed expressions of our wants for Bacchus Sommelier Services' look and feel into a spot on, stylish, eye-catching and attention getting brand. Our continued thanks and appreciation to Ali and the Blend Creative Studio team!
Quite simply, Ali is an artist. His flare for his designs are different from all others in his industry. He has most certainly made our company look different from our competitors. Thrilled with your work!

Blend Creative Studio was unbelievably helpful to me when I was tasked with developing a marketing plan for camps at our 3 campuses. From developing logos to constructing websites and designing forms, Blend Creative outdid themselves. They exceeded expectations with their efficiency in meeting our deadlines and often went above and beyond when handling any revisions that needed to be made.

Through Opening Hearts, I have had the pleasure of working with Blend Creative Studio on a number of projects. They have helped us create logos, postcards and sponsorship booklets – just to name a few. Their work has been very professional in all aspects. They are very creative, coming up extremely impressive designs for us. Ali, Lynn and everyone else at Blend are excellent at what they do and I highly recommend them.
Blend Creative Studio and I have had a lot of opportunities to work on many different projects together. From small-scale projects such as the refreshing old and tired creative to the development of new marketing collateral for Sunnybrook Foundation, YMCA of Greater Toronto and Children's Wish Foundation, Blend has consistently shown their ability to provide impactful and effective designs that help deliver the objectives of the initiatives. And unlike traditional design agencies, Ali and his team move at lightning speed to ensure that projects are delivered on time and on budget.
