New work for our clients…
Early this year, okay in the spring (I’m a little late with the blog post.), we were asked by our wonderful MolsonCoors client to mock-up some window decal versions for presentation.

The Canadian Rodeo finals are held in Edmonton each year and our Molson client needed a video for the narrow LED ring that goes around the arena featuring Coors Banquet, a perennial rodeo sponsor.
A new medium for us but a bunch of quick sketches later and with a lot of help…
The Powell River Kings Junior A Hockey Team is supported in part by a “Dream Lottery” and we were chosen this year to revise and update their website to help them raise funds to support the team.
While on one level this was a pretty simple project,…read more
And the very, very occasional blog post.
We blog when we think we have something good to share, not just to endlessly blog in the hope of driving up SEO…wait…
I had installed MAMP (Macintosh, Apache, MySQL and PHP) several months ago to try running a local Wordpress site for testing design ideas, plug-ins etc., and while the install all worked I really didn’t understand how it all installed and functioned so I didn’t really use it much. I tried to go back to it recently and found MAMP had some issues with the latest Mac OS.read more
I came across what I consider to be some slightly dated advice most recently, on a website design site, while I was doing a bit of competitive research on small business website design. It had been copied, albeit with a link, from an article on Entrepreneur.com entitled “10 things Every Small-Business Website Needs.”read more
I’ve been reading 2015 web design trends in blogs since somewhere in September of 2014. And while there are some differences from list to list there are a few things that seem to make everyone’s list. Not a top 10, which for me is a few too many to focus on, but my top 4. Short and sweet.read more
How we work to solve your marketing challenge. We were going to call it proprietary, but it’s not, it’s just good business sense.
We start by learning about your company and your marketing communications, advertising or design challenge.
The big idea. Working within your budget and timeline we find a unique and strategic creative solution for your project.
We take your message live. In all media required. Whether that’s a new banner ad or a full scale advertising campaign.
A portfolio of our work.
The work shown includes creative advertising and design projects handled directly for our present clients, and clients of our previous enterprises as well as projects undertaken while under contract or on assignment to other agencies.
(It goes without saying that the work remains the property of the respective agency/client. Wait, I just said it.)
People are talking about us.
And we like it. Thank you for your wonderful comments.
Catfish Creative is fantastic. Molson Coors’ West Market Development Area (MDA) was gearing up for our 2016 Regional Conference. We were developing videos to convey our 2016 programming to our frontline sales force. The call came in to build a video behind our In Store Signage / Retailtainment for 2016 and we only had 72 hours to complete the perforated exterior window decals; fantastic exterior billboards which bring our Brands to life in Retail. Catfish Creative stepped in and ran the project. Catfish Creative developed initial creative for the decals same day and reviewed the concepts with the decision makers. Then they built the beautiful working files even rebuilding a Heineken image for Molson Coors as we could not find the hero image. The creative was top notch and delivered according to our tight timeline. The video for the conference was very well received and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Catfish Creative to others as their workmanship is exemplary.Travis Rhine
