  • WordPress templates or custom designed, responsive, mobile-friendly websites. Let us give you a hand!

    If you are in Vancouver we are happy to meet and talk about your web design needs. Some sites are simple 2-3 page presentations and others are more complex. We will work with you to determine the best design and strategy for your new website.

  • SWCA has a strong foundation in graphic design and we bring a senior level of strategic thinking to your projects.

    Graphic design is so much more than pretty pictures. How and what are you trying to communicate? Who are you talking to? How can the design get your reader to the important information–quickly?

  • We have years of experience with food packaging design and are very familiar with the CFIA regulations for food packaging in Canada.

    Are your products listed with the big-box grocery retailers? We have designed many products that are placed into these stores. and can help make sure your products are successful!

  • Infographics design for annual reports and presentation graphics? Give us a shout to discuss the possibilities!

    Our unique brainstorming and ideation talents guarantee effective, simple infographics design. We’ll help you get all your important facts to your audience in a beautiful illustrated manner.
