    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. We are very familiar with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) regulations for food packaging in Canada.

    Food packaging design in Canada has a long set of rules. We have worked with the regulators at the CFIA and are very familiar with their requirements. As well, we are experienced designers of products listed with the big-box grocery retailers. Many of our products are placed into these stores. We will work with you to be successful in the busy retail marketplace.

  • Spreading knowledge through visual design. Infographics design has become a major communication tool online, in annual reports, sales collateral, and it seems like almost everywhere you look.

    Our goal is to create stimulating and engaging graphics that illustrate ideas, data or other important business information. Our unique brainstorming and ideation skills guarantee effective infographics design. We’ll help you connect with your audience with our creative design solutions.
