Originally from Dublin, Ireland, I have called Whistler home since the winter of 2012.
As an experienced graphic designer I am fortunate to be able to pursue my passion for illustration while also building and growing my graphic design business.
Before moving to Canada, I studied Visual Communications at the National College of Art and Design, where I obtained a higher degree in the subject. Both this four-year university degree and my 16 years of experience in the graphic design industry have given me a wide variety of experience in all aspects of graphic design and associated production processes, from magazines to large format displays and signage, website design and social media marketing materials.
During my time here in Whistler, I spent over eight years working with Whistler Publishing as a Graphic Designer and Production Manager on many of their publications including Pique Newsmagazine, Whistler Question, Wishes Wedding Magazine, Pemberton Guide, the Squamish Chief and many more.
Since forming my business in 2016, I have worked with many small businesses within the Sea to Sky, and beyond, to create impactful brand identities, and with large, more established businesses to create beautiful, creative reports, signage, event banners and more.
“I hired Lou to help me with a complete re-branding. Logo, business card, brand colours and identity. I had a vision in mind and she helped me bring it to life in a stunning way.
I use my brand elements everyday and I am delighted with how professional and sharp it looks. Lou was very patient with all my requests and I highly recommend her to anyone looking forhigh quality work in a timely manner.”
