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.
I always found Creative Canary to be very helpful and perfect for a novice tech operator like myself. They explained everything in easy to understand language and were extremely prompt with responding to emails and requests. I am very happy with the way my branding and website turned out and at how quickly they were able to get me up and running, I would highly recommend Phil and the team at Creative Canary.
For over 20 years we operated as Granite Transformations. After evolving our services and offering a new range of solutions to our clients, we knew it was time for a rebrand. Creative Canary were instrumental in this part of our evolution. They not only helped with the creation of the new name and brand, they also redesigned all our marketing material, signage, social media assets and created us a shiny new website that we are so proud to call our own. Their creativity, response time and eagerness to get things perfect is why we’ve continued to use their services for over 3 years now. Phil and his team are always by their email ready to respond whenever I need something new designed. I can’t thank the team enough for everything they’ve done for Australian Stone. I would highly recommend Creative Canary to anyone looking for someone they can trust with their business.
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.
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.
I was referred to Creative Canary by a close friend who spoke very highly of their work. When I met with Phil to discuss my branding and website, he was easy to work with, receptive of my input and understood what I was looking for.
From initial concepts to the final design and through the whole process, Phil’s attention to detail and creativity is commendable. Phil is a talented perfectionist. I have no hesitation in recommending Creative Canary – Phil, you do great work.
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.
From our first meeting with the team from Creative Canary it was clear that we were in the hands of an experienced and professional design team. They made the whole design experience easy and enjoyable. Phil and his team completely remodelled our website by integrating our ideas and theirs into a product that we are both proud of and that is in line with the industry expectations. Creative Canary went further than just our website and completely designed and printed our business cards, signage and promotional gear. Since the remodelling of our marketing we have seen great results in our SEO campaign and a noted increase in online and in store interest. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Phil and his design team at Creative Canary and highly recommend them for all design projects.
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 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.
I’ve worked with Phil and the team from Creative Canary for many years, so it was inevitable that I was going to harness their creative energy when I took on my new role as Marketing Manager at Cahoots. Their eye for detail, creative flare and unbeatable response times makes this team so easy to work with. They’ve completed a number of design projects for us – Annual Reports, posters, flyers, website updates and graphics for socials. As always, their work is outstanding and has helped raise our marketing material to another level. I can’t thank the team enough for their hard work and dedication.
