Shaun Roncken is a copywriter based in Toronto.

A Swiss Army Knife with the body of a human man, Shaun still clings to his reputation as the co-founder of a menswear company that received a “Best new app” feature in the iOS App Store.

Shaun writes ad copy, long form content, and scripts. He also directs short videos, and co-authored an e-book on design.  

His bread and butter is the sprawling bio written in the third person.

One of his most recent projects is Mylo, a men’s style app and staples shop that he co-founded.

Mylo was once Mijlo, a Dutch-inspired homeware brand that produced goods like Where’s Wallet: a smart wallet + app.

“An easy to use smart wallet that’s impossible to lose” - PSFK.

Shaun also moonlights as a writer and director for a handful of high profile companies.


Recently he co-wrote a book / talk on the future of design titled Design for Humanity.

Early in his career Shaun was a copywriter at Draft FCB, where he co-wrote an entry for the Cannes Lions Festival.

Shaun also likes to write for various print + web publications.

“Wildly ambitious...Roncken’s catalogue is a chugging tour de force...his bravura approach samples from different eras and styles to explore the human condition.” - O, The Oprah Magazine
