We bring to every design project a superior visual standard and attention to detail.

Shortcreative is a unique graphic design firm located in Victoria, BC.

This is a place where budgets, goals, time-lines and objectives are analyzed. Knowing the EXACT size of the box is critical.

Creative thinking requires room to roam but, at the end of the day, good graphic design is design that works.

Skills & Services

Shortcreative has a focus on packaging design. We know materials and structural processes. We are experienced with the local and off-shore packaging providers. We have worked with stringent food and chemical government labelling regulations. We have worked in alternate languages.

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “think outside the box”.
When it comes to package design it’s important to think “inside” the box. Especially when it comes to food packaging. The box is defined by regulations defined by the CIFA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency), NFTs (Nutritional Fact Tables), allowable claims, sizing of information, bilingual requirements, print techniques and production line requirements. Sound like a lot? It is. For other types of products there may be mandatory safety warnings required on the main display face. Not sure if your packaging meets all requirements? Time for a refresh? Call us today to arrange a packaging audit. If you’re looking for great looking packaging that meets all requirements we can help!

But mostly we have created packaging that sells!

We care about our clients success, and we know the importance packaging plays. If you are developing a new product or know its time to overhaul an old one, get in touch and find out what we can do for you.

Graphic Design

The core of everything we do is good design based on good thinking. Good thinking comes from good information and research at the onset of a project. The better we understand your goals the better we perform.


With two shooters in-house and a pile of gear there isn’t much we can’t or won’t shoot.

From tabletop product images shot in the studio to rooftop panoramas, we deliver the same level of professionalism. Our studio is especially well set up for product photography and with a kitchen nearby food photography is easier. We also have a mobile food and product photography rig so we can come to you if its easier.
