strategic advertising & graphic design solutions 

From our galactic head office in beautiful Powell River, BC, Canada we work remotely offering strategic, creative advertising, web site and graphic design, brand development and communication solutions to clients who prefer a smaller boutique agency relationship. We provide creative to a limited client list and offer highly personalized service.

What does this all mean to you?

Quality product. Competitively priced. Attention to your business.



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.

There’s stuff goin’ on.

New work for our awesome clients…

 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…

People are talking about us.

And we like it. Thank you for your wonderful comments.

Our group has been more than pleased to have chosen a local Powell River business as our web site designer.  Catfish Creative has been responsive, intelligent, creative and flexible in their work with us, and got a site up and running for us in record time. Thank you Julie and Ernie!

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.

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.

Getting Life Right

“Powell River Kings are very satisfied with the new design for our Dream Lottery Website. The graphics and the layout is more than what we expected and the cost was very reasonable. The design of the order form is seamless and very user friendly. Catfish Creative was very helpful through the development process and with their professional help the Kings now have a first class user friendly web site. Thank you Julie and Ernie for a job well done. We highly recommend Catfish Creative to any one who is in need of websites or Graphic Designs.”

Working with Julie and the Catfish team is always a pleasure! They are truly some of the nicest and most enthusiastic people I’ve ever worked with. Working on our 2017 calendar together was easy and seamless and the finished product was a high-quality piece both NCC and Catfish could be proud of. NCC went through a re-brand in early/mid-2016 and Catfish has been amazing at following and understanding our new brand guidelines, as well as offering helpful suggestions. They’ve worked on many projects for us since our re-brand and each piece — from our welcome brochure, to newsletter to templates, to donation forms —has been designed with care and attention. Thank you Julie and Ernie for having our backs!

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!!
