I’m Ruth, the founder and creative director of Whistler Creative

In 2008 after recently relocating from the England to Canada in search of a mountain lifestyle, I decided it was time to use my experience, knowledge and passion to become an entrepreneur and start my own small business. Initially it was a one-women freelance studio called Ruth Johnson Graphic design and over the past 10 years it has grown into a full time, sustainable creative design company built up of a team of professionals, known as Whistler Creative.

Our mission is to provide small, medium, startup or growing businesses a unique, creative solution to communicate their message visually. We are located in Whistler BC, are are proud to help companies world wide.
