My name is Vanessa Raven-Vipond and I like to refer to myself as an illustrative designer. I am a Graphic Designer with a more whimsical, illustrative approach to my design. I like to help small businesses truly stand out with original, timeless identities that reflect their unique vision and tell their unique stories. I also create whimsical illustrations for advertising, books, packaging, apparel and gifts.

My studio is currently based in the beautiful Comox Valley, B.C., Canada, though I have also lived and worked in Toronto, Ontario and Halifax, Nova Scotia for clients all across Canada and around the world. Having truly lived from Coast to Coast and everywhere in between I have an enormous appreciation for our great country and all of its history, charm and beauty, that is loved, respected and admired the world over.

Prior to Sea Salt design, I worked in-house for a variety of companies across Canada, in Signage, Editorial Illustration and Layout Design, Digital and Offset Printing and Commercial Screen Printing. I have worked under my own name as a freelance and launched my own line of T-shirts and greeting cards under the brand Diva Doodles. Much of my work can still be found in resorts, gifts shops and attractions across Canada.

Past clients and employers include:

  • Hillside Graphics
  • Arts Council of Canada
  • Strategis Canada
  • City Wide Alert Magazine and the Menus of Greater Halifax
  • Pacific Digital Printing
