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).

Our daughter, Olivia, has joined the team and is focussing on social media and website promotion. She is also a gifted writer, proofreader and editor.
