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.
After working in the coffee industry for many years, I heard the name Creative Canary floated around quite a bit. When it was time to start my own roastery and café, I knew who to call. I met with Phil and told him the name of my new business, the products we planned to offer and audience we wanted to target. He not only came up with the logo you see today, but also helped in the naming of my blends and made sure all my marketing collateral tied in with each other. Creative Canary was essential in the start of my business and will continue to be for years to come. Every piece of design work you see in our café or online I’m proud to say is designed by the creative genius. Our logo, online store, business cards, product labels, packaging and advertisements are unrivalled, unique and something I will continue to boast about. Thanks again to Phil and his amazing team for being such an asset to Nero Espresso.
Phil has been working with Mondo Landscapes since he was 19 as our Web Developer and we wouldn’t consider talking to anyone else. It is wonderful to see him build Creative Canary into a successful company supported by a great team of creatives. Creative Canary has the ability to deliver a dynamic website, clean, powerful and easy for all to use. Creative Canary really understands the need for a web to be intuitive and fluid. Their ongoing support is outstanding! Plus we love the laughs and interaction we have had along the way. Phil is quick to pull me into line with a strong sense of humour and I really appreciate his guidance and whit. A very cool team to work with and so much fun.
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.
United Medical Centres worked with Phil from Creative Canary to redesign our website. Phil was an absolute pleasure to work with. He knew exactly where we were heading with our design and how to maximise all aspects of our website. He worked quickly and was fantastic with his communication. There were many late nights and early mornings involved and it really showed in the quality of the end product! He delivered far above our expectations and we wouldn’t hesitate to use his services again. Many thanks again Phil!
I have been working with Phil and his team at Creative Canary since 2016. From the initial meeting and briefs – I knew then and there Phil had a talent. He makes your ideas come to life! His digital and creative skills are perfect. I can honestly say, that Phil has created pure magic with our branding culture – the work reflects Phil’s high attention to detail, creative flair and passion for our brand. It’s so refreshing to work with an agency that genuinely wants to be involved each step of the way. Phil and his team at Creative Canary have done a remarkable job and continue to do so. I have so much confidence and trust in Phil and his team – I know whatever task is needed it’s executed with pure perfection. His creativity and skill set is genius! It’s so refreshing to align with an agency that genuinely cares.
Thank you to Phil and his team at Creative Canary for creating an amazing new website for my business. Creative Canary is a team full of cutting edge talent, dedication and passion for web design and development. I was very impressed with the quality of work done by Phil. Throughout the whole process Phil was very professional and efficient. He listened to what I wanted and also advised me on what would work best for my website. I have received nothing but compliments on the new website since going live. Working with Phil was an absolute pleasure and I would definitely recommend Creative Canary to anyone looking for a professional, efficient and friendly website designer.
Having not updated our website for almost a decade, our online presence had been an afterthought for a while. We knew our website needed some work but we really couldn’t put our finger on exactly what was lacking. We turned to Creative Canary and were absolutely blown away by their work. They took care of everything, sorting us out with a new brand and marketing collateral as well as all the online requirements, like the website and email hosting as well as domain management. We had put this in the too hard basket for so long but Phil and the guys made the process so easy for us, we we only wish we contacted them sooner!
Our strengths and skills lay in operating our business, however, the world of web design and social media is beyond our expertise. We have used Phil on a number of occasions now and he has been extremely patient in guiding us through unfamiliar territory in spite of the fact we have often struggled to give him much to work with.
Accelerate Group is all about being there for our clients. We work hard to provide reliable and ongoing support when it matters most, with a view to building long term, trusted relationships. Which is why, when looking for the right company to help us reinvigorate our brand, we wanted to find people who shared our values and could come to understand or business. For us, Creative Canary are those people! They completed a total overhaul of our brand from the ground up, from our logo and marketing materials right down to our email signatures and business cards. The team were very proactive in their approach during consultation and we could not have asked for more with regards to response times! Phil and the guys were incredibly quick to come back to us with ideas and suggestions. In fact, they got to know us so well they even had a hand in creating our slogan – “more than technology” – which perfectly aligned with our business strategy moving forward. Once again, a huge thank you to Phil and the Creative Canary team for their hard work and flexibility in going the extra mile. We couldn’t imagine getting the same result anywhere else.
Creative Canary has well and truly exceeded my expectations in the creation and development of my new website for my photography business. I am extremely happy with the unique design concept they have created and not only do I have a fresh new platform but my website structure also performs better for my business and is effectively streamlining my work flow through greater efficiencies. I have thoroughly enjoyed the process of creating this new website and working with the team at Creative Canary. They have demonstrated their professional and attentive customer service consistently and I now happily and without hesitation recommend them to colleagues and friends.
