crazy simple branding and websites that work as hard as you do.
In a world where it seems like everyone is fighting to fit in, I want to make sure that you stand out. Gone are the days of DIY’ed logos and temporary “works for now” websites.
Welcome to you as the belle of the ball, catching second glances, attracting only the visitors you truly want and making sure that your website is both beauty and the brains.
i’m all about making the complex, simple.
MY JOB IS TO FIND THE PERFECT MATCH BETWEEN PRETTY AND SMART DESIGN.
Rather than give you a trendy logo that will fade like last summer's tan, I will set you up with a brand that will reflect your timeless style inside and out.
My secret ingredient is information design.
Which is a fancy way of saying that design is so much more than just a pretty face. It takes into account user experience, information architecture and presenting the information in a clear and concise way.
It’s the sliced bread of the design world, making yours and your clients life easier one piece at a time.
It’s time to have a brand that truly represents you, giving you confidence, clarity, and a consistent look across your entire brand.
We’re not a good fit if:
You insist on designing everything yourself. Leave the design work up to me, sit back, grab a coffee and keep doing what you do best.
You know “exactly” what you want your brand to look like and just need someone to produce it.
- You’re not ready to invest in yourself and propel your brand forward.
We’re the perfect fit if:
You’ve DIYed your logo before, and it has never really felt like it’s matching up to your true potential.
You want a cohesive and consistent brand and website, so there’s no guesswork when you need to post an image to instagram, or need a new blog post image.
- You want to book more of those dream clients and be able to speak directly to you ideal market.

Let's get to know each other
I’m Megan the Creative Director + Owner of Little Dot Creative. From a very young age I always admired branding and loved watching companies evolve and adapt their style. This translated into an almost feverish hoarding of fonts and graphics so that I could learn how to create logos, mood boards and styles of my own.
I followed my passion for design to Mount Royal University in Calgary, Canada where I received my Bachelor of Communications in Information Design.
I landed a job at a non-profit right out of school as the sole graphic designer. I liked what I did and loved that it was all for a good cause but this job was also the job that started a long string of not-so-awesome bosses.
After a few years of suffering through companies I didn’t love, designing graphics I didn’t love while freelancing on the side, I decided it was time to put away the horrible bosses and start my company once and for-all. And now i'm here to help you with your business, and ensure you have that consistent cohesive look to book those clients you dream about.
