A maker at heart, Phil is Creative Canary’s “Big Bird.” After years in the design industry, working for a diverse list of marketing companies, both as a freelancer and staff member, he launched his own dedicated design agency with the aim of breathing fresh life into clients’ ideas.
Using his passion for all forms of visual communication, Phil began developing his skills at the age of 10, when he designed a website for the local vocal studio where he trained.
From there, he channelled both his talent and enthusiasm for design and upon leaving school, embarked on a journey as a creative entrepreneur. After studies in Multimedia and Network Communications, Phil began work as a freelancer offering graphic design and web design services in Perth’s southern suburbs, with the launch of CPM Designs. His client list grew rapidly and he joined forces with the local IT company, Accelerate Group, where he became the Senior Designer in their Accelerate Media division.
Two years later he became the Senior Designer at M2 Technology designing visual campaigns, websites and marketing materials for established and reputable brands such as Telstra, Harvey World Travel, Helloworld, P&N Bank and Pharmacy777. In 2015 Phil decided to take a leap of faith in his design abilities, inspired by his many satisfied customers and launched Creative Canary in Fremantle.
His first major client was Espresso Works for whom he produced all their digital, marketing and printing collateral. The company’s client base has since expanded significantly and today, with a team of creative experts, they successfully juggle an extensive range of design projects.
Phil has ensured Creative Canary has a community focus from the outset and regularly contributes to charities such as the PMH Foundation, World’s Greatest Shave, Movember for Men’s Health and more. Another important charity it supports is the Think Fragile X Foundation which raises money for sufferers of the Fragile X Syndrome; a genetic condition that causes intellectual disability, as well as behavioural and learning challenges in children.
As a long-time friend and collaborator of Phil’s, Anthony was the perfect choice to join the nest at Creative Canary as Phil’s right (and left) hand man. With a passion for design, problem solving and a focus on the latest and greatest in technology, he’s our resident lateral thinker and solution seeker.
If there is ever anything anyone needs on a website and it doesn’t seem possible, Anthony will dig deep into his website knowledge and pull out an amazing and innovative answer.
Growing up with a tech-savvy dad, Anthony learned the excitement of technology’s possibility early. As a youth he invested a great amount of time in designing logos, graphics and t-shirts.
Anthony took up studies in Multimedia and after completing his study, landed his first gig designing at FHE Hockey. Here he managed multiple brands and designed everything from logos, websites and uniforms to hockey sticks, sporting equipment and other apparel. In 2013 he was tapped on the shoulder by Select Sports and continued his passion for design, working with new brands.
In 2016 he launched his own freelance design business, Cheeky Pineapple, where his client list included FHE, VooDoo Hockey, Gryphon Hockey and Bristo Uniforms. During this time Anthony also worked on multiple projects with Creative Canary and was soon asked to bring his experience and creative talent to Creative Canary.
When I was given the task of supervising the project to overhaul the company website, I asked a good friend of mine to put me in touch with a quality website designer in Perth. They put me onto Creative Canary. Right from when Phil came to our office and discussed his ideas for our website, he has been nothing but amazing. Communication, design and openness to new ideas is what Phil and Creative Canary do best. Phil was our first and last point of call. Phil’s patience and guidance during our project was a wonderful comfort. Things took a little longer than expected on our end, due to us changing our minds and getting excited about new ideas, adding over 50 professional photos of our staff, and pushing back the release date over and over. But despite that, Phil was there for us. I knew it was all worthwhile when I saw our employees’ smiles upon seeing the beautiful new website. Creative Canary took our website to another level and helped make this project a success. I can comfortably recommend Creative Canary to anyone looking for help with their company website.
Had the absolute pleasure of working with Creative Canary. They designed all the branding and creative content for my business, Outback Eats and smashed it! Thank you Phil and team for making the process easy and efficient. My business wouldn’t be able to achieve what it has been without your expertise. 10/10 recommend to anyone needing a branding genius.
When I approached Phil to redesign the Harry and Gretel website, it was a Squarespace one page website. It’s now a fully functional e-commerce site that features upgrades beyond the standard online fashion retailer. Given that the client was worried about stepping into the e-commerce space, the transition and web build went smoothly making the Harry and Gretel brand accessible all over the world. Taking your client base from local to international is a huge asset to a fashion retailer. Thanks so much Phil! The website looks amazing and truly reflects the edginess and femininity of the Harry and Gretel brand!
The Think Fragile X Foundation is beyond excited to have a new, amazing website created by the Xtremely talented Phil La Rosa at Creative Canary. Phil’s enthusiasm, creative ideas, organisational skills and dedication to creating our new website has been outstanding, he is always a pleasure to deal with and nothing was ever too much trouble. What has made this experience even more amazing is Phil’s passion and belief in the work our Foundation does – without his support we would never have been able to create such a fantastic website. The endless compliments and messages I have received from our supporters since we went live have been overwhelming. Phil, I can’t thank you enough for taking our website to a place I could only have dreamed about, I am excited to see where we take it next.

The whole team at Valve & Fitting Australia were thrilled to have Creative Canary on board to completely overhaul our business’s branding, online presence and signage. This re-brand was exactly what we needed to bring our brand into the 21st century – and just in time for the move to our new office. Phil provided us with a fantastic new logo, website, and updated all our business cards and marketing collateral. From our initial meeting, Phil has guided us every step of the way. He even suggested we change our name from Valve & Fitting Supply to Valve & Fitting Australia, which was an idea we were happy to take on board to further help establish our nation-wide presence. To Phil and the team at Creative Canary – thank you for helping us rejuvenate our business. Your creativity, enthusiasm and dedication has been a huge asset. What a way to celebrate our 20 years of business
