We are a team.

Shortcreative was founded by Cheryl and Howard Short. We have been working together since meeting in the 80s at the Alberta College of Art in the 4-Year Visual Communications Program.

Our shared dedication to a higher standard of visual communications has served us and our clients well for over 20 years. We both have been professional members and served on the local executive of the Graphic Designers of Canada (GDC).

Kristin Ferris, joined us in 2014. She has studied both Photography and Advanced Communications the Western Academy of Photography and completed her design education at Thompson River’s University. Chances are the first time you call shortcreative, Kristin is the one you’ll talk to.
