Editor/Partner, Outsider Editorial
Alison Gordon is co-founder of Outsider Editorial. She cut her teeth in top commercial edit shops in Toronto, gaining national & international recognition before moving to Paris, France in 2011. After half a decade in the City of Light, working with such high profile brands as YSL, Bulgari, Peugeot and Samsung, it was time to return to Toronto to realize the dream of what became Outsider.
Since their launch in 2018, Outsider has quickly racked up international awards, including Cannes, Webby’s, Ciclope, LIA, D& AD, Clios and even an Oscar shortlist. They ended up on Shots “Editing House of the Year” shortlist in 2020 and this year the Immortal Awards rated them #1 Editing House in Canada and in the top 10 globally.
Alison’s passion for promoting the art and craft of editing led to her serving on the board of the AICE (2016-2018) as well as on awards juries for AICP, Cannes Lions and Canada’s Marketing Awards. A traveller by nature, when not in an edit suite you’ll find her on the road… be it by foot, bike, car or plane.
