Hi! I’m Gillian

I’m a creative director living in Vancouver, BC. I specialize in brand development, creative strategies and graphic design. Whether you’re looking for a one-woman creative team to conceptualize, plan, and execute a project, or an extension of your current team to bring a fresh perspective and some extra talent, I’m here to help.

What we can do together

Branding & Identity Development

Whether you’re a startup in need of a logo, a new company wanting to build your identity, or an established business looking for a brand refresh, I’m here to help. My services include start-to-finish branding and design projects as well as support at every phase of a project.

Graphic Design Services

Whether you need digital assets for social media, event experience design, packaging, or printed marketing materials, I can do it all. Got a small but important design project? I’m fast, adaptable, and can work to your budget.

Brand Expressions

I can pull together a badass team of content strategists and copywriters to create your mission and vision statements, develop your voice, and identify your brand’s personality. I’ll turn your business concept into a fully-expressed brand.

Creative Direction & Consultations

Need help managing a creative project? Someone to help you get it over the finish line? I offer consultations to kick-start projects and can lead creative sprints to get your ideas flowing. If your project is stalling, I can provide direction and leadership to help your team get it wrapped and delivered.

Musings

Straight-shootin, TMI kind of writing on things I’ve learned from my experience as a woman in the marketing and creative industry. Shared in the hopes that I can help you realize you’re not crazy or alone. I’m out here with you, making mistakes and having fun doing it.

“I can without question say that part of the reason my gym & brand Raincity Athletics has done as well as it has is because of the beautiful branding we had done from the ground up by Gillian. Everything from keeping the designs simple, to perfect color choices, she nailed it and that’s been a big part of the success of my business in the last 5 years.”

“I came to Gillian for design direction but she provided so much more. She created a stronger, more unified brand voice and then helped me carry this across all platforms. Working with her to rebrand and implement specific marketing strategies resulted in a significant increase in my online revenue. Whether your business is new or in need of a freshen up, I would not hesitate to recommend her.”
