In this job I get to draw pictures, tweak layouts, and play with words. Clients become friends, and whether they are fish biologists, educators, or satellite radio specialists, they have a passion for their work and team up with me to get their message out. I get my greatest satisfaction from the interpretive signs we’ve made for parks and trails throughout the province.

I studied art history at university, and was tempted to the academic life, but when I started Black Cat in 1988 I discovered that having my own business gave me creative freedom, quality control, and flexibility I could find nowhere else.

And, yes, I do have a black cat.
