Connor McCracken is a 22 year old Communications Design Essentials graduate from Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Previous to studying Design, he studied Chemistry and Physics at the University of Alberta for three years.

Connor is most well known for his work in Project Pilgrim, his mental health initiative that is featured here.

When he is not pursuing his creative endeavors, he is found giving his time to non-profits, volunteering with the Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre, or in the outdoors around Metro Vancouver hiking, skiing, kayaking, or camping. Connor is currently freelancing around Vancouver (client list below).

Connor, to many, "is the person they turn to when they are in need of getting help." During his Kickstarter for Project Pilgrim, an article was published about him calling him "a selfless, compassionate individual, with a drive to make change utilizing his many talents in photography, interpersonal skills, and mental health advocacy."
