Ruth Barrow

Hi, i’m Ruth, founder & creative director

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.


  • I grew up in exact centre of England (in a town called Ashby-de-la-Zouch)
  • I have a bachelor of honours degree in Visual Communication, specializing in Graphic Design
  • I love maths (weird for a creative right)
  • I love to travel and to explore different city’s and cultures – thats what brought me here to British Columbia
  • I love all aspects of art and design, painting and crafting
  • I admire great typography and all things colour.
  • and I have a fun loving and mischievous Springer Spaniel named Brae


Whistler Creative works with a team of professionals to bring a wealth of expertise to our projects including website development, illustration, photography and copywriting.
