Summer of Cider

Our Calgary client at Molson Coors came to us with a fun project. They wanted to combine their cider offerings in an in-store promotion for the Alberta market. We love these projects that start with a blank page! Starting with some rough sketches, we presented the... read more

Getting Getting Life Right Right

Getting Life Right was a new company and needed an identity and initial web presence. As a small business and a new venture this was not the right time or the right place for a big budget branding exercise. Not a problem. After several consultations, resulting in an... read more

We blog when we think we have something good to share, not just to endlessly blog in the hope of driving up SEO…wait…


Web design trends 2015

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... 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.

I had the opportunity to work with Catfish Creative on the design and launch of my website. I was very new to web design but Catfish Creative provided me with a step by step method to make the process seamless. They were very collaborative and creative. We shared likes and dislikes on web design and aligned to a look and feel before anything was developed. I was very pleased with the final product. I was also pleased that they have the ability to host and manage my website. This gives me the assurance that everything will work smoothly but if there is a problem it will be attended to immediately. I would recommend Catfish Creative if you are looking for a hands on, creative, collaborative and quality design company.

Kudos to Catfish Creative!!

I want to thank you for generously sharing your time and expertise with me. Your insight into making an action plan to bring more traffic to my website was extremely helpful. After applying only three of your suggestions my sales have increased and I am encouraged to keep moving forward.

Thank you Julie and Ernie!!
