– Phil La Rosa
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.
Working with Creative Canary on our new website was a painless process! They were so accommodating to our needs and delivered a finished product we are completely over the moon with! They’re planning, ideas and execution was second-to-none. They not only fulfilled our internal requirements but requirements of our online marketing agency. Working along side our marketing agency, they were the absolute dream team. Massive thank you to Phil and the team at Creative Canary.
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.
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
From inception I found Phil’s attitude to be very welcoming and he listened to the content of the brief I provided and created an outstanding new website that we are very proud of. His creative design flare really bought the website to life and his ideas have really made the site feel like it’s part of the 20th century. His communication skills and “can do” attitude made the customer experience a pleasant one and took the pressure off me having to do a lot of the ground work. I was satisfied with his turn around time and have received nothing but compliments on the new website since going live. I would highly recommend anyone looking at having a website created by a competent website designer to use Phil and the team at Creative Canary!
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.
Being new owners of Uncle Joes Barber and Mess we were really keen on developing our website to be more than just a simple Instagram feed or link online. The truth is we really had no idea even where to begin and needed some serious help at the start of the process! Phil was fantastic in terms of listening to exactly what we were trying to achieve, whilst always being happy to offer his advice through his experience and knowledge. After a session or two in working out the “feel” and “look” of the website Phil went away and came back with a site that suited us down to a tee. A few tweaks here and there and the job done in a timely and professional manner. Apart from all of the cool creative stuff we worked through we are really happy with the way the website performs across a number of functions, such as online bookings, an online store and a voucher ordering system. The manner in which it all works together is brilliant. We are absolutely over the moon with the way our website has turned out and would strongly recommend Creative Canary to anyone that wants to build a website for their business.
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!
Working with Creative Canary on creating the Shore Leave website was a pleasure! Their no jargon, practical approach made creating the website easy. They created a website that not only met our brief, and budget but looks fantastic too! We’re very happy with the result and look forward to developing the website further over the coming years.
