Welcome to CL Designs: an award-nominated design studio. Over the past 10 years, I've grown my social enterprise to help purpose-driven businesses and non-profits elevate their branding and connect with the people most important to them. My mission is to communicate with integrity and to create a positive impact.
Having earned my stripes in the fast-paced media world, and learned first-hand the challenges faced by startups through my own journey (sometimes the hard way!) I wanted to provide lean and efficient design and branding services that would free businesses to push on with what they’re best at.
Featured in Yahoo News, DHL, Canadian SME Awards, RBC’s Women To Watch, Pexels, Fuck Up Nights, and more. My signature focused and efficient style is a fave that my purpose-driven brands rave about.

WHY WORK WITH ME?
Here are a few really good reasons to keep me up up your sleeve for your next branding project, website, or campaign launch:
1. I’m efficient.
My two favourite words are communication and deadlines. If you’re fed up of being left in the dark by your designer, or always being the one sending reminders, then you’re going to love working with me. Yes, we get it done at lightning speed, but we collectively ensure there's enough time to get your desired outcome. Check out my recent reviews if you don’t believe me.
2. I treat your business like it’s my own.
Helping businesses like yours make a lasting impression on their customers feels good. It’s what gets me out of bed in the morning. I know that you want your brand to make a difference in the world, and that you need a contractor who cares about your business values as much as you do.
3. Transparency's my favourite.
There’s nothing more frustrating than not knowing what’s going on with your project. I outline my services into three easy packages, so that you can see exactly what you’re getting, and what the investment is. Click here to choose your package.
4. I’m loyal.
In other words, I’ve got your back. Just ask my clients, who keep coming back time after time. I’ll never try to pull a fast one on you, and I’ll always treasure and nurture a long term relationship in favour of a flash-in-the-pan job.
5. I’ll always power through.
Perseverance and determination to get the job done, are among the top reasons my clients love to work with me. If you’re looking for someone dependable, who can deliver - even when the wifi is weak and the deadline is tight - I’m your weapon of choice.
