Website Design, Blog Design and Graphic Design Services - Vancouver, BC | Peppercorn Creative

We want to make you recognizable and memorable and create a brand that’s truly yours and helps you get found on Google, sell your product or service, get noticed, find engaged, loyal followers and have brand sponsors or high-caliber clients invest in you.

Your website is the very first impression a potential client or brand sponsor experiences when they find you. Don’t you think it should blow them away, Terminator style?

Through years of proven strategies, clear communication, luxury client service and a careful balance of art and functionality, we create a fully branded design that will create a unique, consistent, and distinctive personality that takes you from here… to where you want to be.

This all starts with user-focused and content-optimized design that pops it like it’s hot and funnels folks further into your site so they stick around and invest in you.

We only accept a few select blog & website design projects per year so we can work closely with you – one on one – to create a brand that gets you noticed, generates leads, attracts new opportunities and increases your influence.

And then, we create websites and full brand identities that actually deliver results!


Your website won’t just look great. It’ll make you lotsa money, too.


You want them to take you seriously enough to invest in you? You have to show them you take their investment seriously; you have to look like a professional. And that starts with your website, baby.

We comprehensively explore your niche’s needs and wants through our intensive research process (phase 2 below). This tells us exactly what colors, shapes, words, and layouts are going to really connect with your ideal reader, brand partner or client, helping you get more of them!

We create user-focused, content-optimized, results-driven, beautiful & effective websites so you can make money doing what you want to do.

Peppercorn Creative is a fabulous company that helped me redesign my website from top to bottom. The initial questionnaire helped me get clear on my vision and communicate my needs to them. Their creative genius has turned my idea into reality! I’ve already received so many compliments on the new look and feel of my website. Thanks to the SEO features, a new client already contacted me.

Our designs save you time & frustration.


We know you’re short on time. It doesn’t wait for anyone. And trying to pack all the things into the day you want to can be really overwhelming. It’s difficult not to feel stuck or uninspired because you have to slog through every minute detail on your site.

Our websites integrate tools that actually save you time and energy.

By seamlessly integrating social media and newsletter performance into your design, optimizing your social profiles and providing detailed guidance on how to best utilize these tools, we take the pressure off you and help to create space in your calendar. This frees you up to do the stuff you really want to do – be it provide a particular service, engage with your community on Instagram or even write that blog post or perfect your photography.

Hell, if you just want to go lay on the beach, you can! …Though we suggest you wear sunblock and take a snack.

Peppercorn Creative have helped me achieve a lot in a relatively short period of time. They really are a trusted business partner and nobody knows the back end of my business better. I’d be truly lost without them! I’ve been extremely happy with the work we've done and am looking forward to them helping me with new initiatives throughout the year. You’d be foolish not to hire them.

Get noticed & stand apart from the crowd.


Branding is how people describe you when you aren’t there.

And we want them to talk. you. up.

Our clients love working with us because we refuse to let them hide in the crowd. This is YOUR project so we really hash out what your message and purpose are so you get noticed as the unique and talented little snowflake that you are.

Part of this is covered in the discovery phase of our project but unlike many other designers you’ll find, it’s also an on-going process that we revisit as the design evolves. That way we ensure the entire solution – design and copy content – measures up to your niche market yet at the same time encompasses your goals and vision so you feel focused, motivated and on target = success.

We truly believe in what you’re doing and your branding should be inspired and convey what you offer that’s unique from everybody else.

I found Peppercorn Creative after seeing some of their amazing work and I hired them to makeover my blog; They did such a fantastic job!

Peppercorn Creative is very professional and they take care of all of the technical stuff so you don’t have to. What ever your style is, they can accommodate your needs. They truly aim to please and work really hard to do so. They did a fantastic job; I am so happy with the result. My blog now fits my personality and style perfectly!

I previously had a love/hate relationship with my unoriginal WordPress theme. It was very limiting and I was not able to do the things I really wanted to do with it. Not only that, the organization was terrible. Peppercorn Creative made the whole process easy. They organized my blog to get rid of the “blog clutter” and it’s now clean, neat, easy to read and follow! I am excited to see where my new blogging adventure takes me… especially with this new look!

I definitely plan to use them for any of my blogging needs in the future!

More organic growth than heirloom tomatoes!


The worst feeling in the world is when you’re pumping out quality content, sharing on social media, participating in groups and telling everyone you meet about your website and you just don’t see the traffic or followers you’re aiming for. The worst, right??

Our branding solutions help you organically build a following, increase traffic and grow your numbers by actually funneling people further into your content.

This gives readers and clients the chance to get to know – and LOVE you!

For example, we utilize tools within the site to position you within Google search, increase reader engagement, social sharing and followers as well as seamlessly integrate your newsletter which is KEY to growing your brand, increasing traffic on a regular basis and rolling in dolla’ dolla’ billz.

Our Process (aka gettin’ it done.)


We communicate crystal clearly with you throughout the duration of our project together – it’s a little somethin’ special we like to call “luxury client service.”

But we also understand you might want to know a little more before we get started.

So here are the major phases of most design projects and a little blurb about each so you know what to expect when working with us.

PRE-PROJECT: BEFORE WE START

Please review our portfolio and what other clients have said about how we’ve helped them. If it looks like we’d be a good fit for you, fill out the Project Launch Form to start the conversation!

We’ll review it and get back to you within 2 days (usually faster) if received during our office hours.

If we’re a good match for each other we’ll get started by asking lots of nosey (and helpful) preliminary questions either via email or a 15 minute laser focus Skype call. Your choice.

We want to really get to know your vision from the inside out so we can create a website or full brand solution that beautifully represents it. This also allows us to get to know the scope of the project and the kind of work that will need to be done to help you reach your goals in the most effective (and lucrative!) way possible.

Based on that conversation we’ll put together your project estimate which details our proposed custom solution for your project and a basic time-frame.

If it looks good, you just shoot us an email and agree to the terms and we’ll send you an initial invoice (50%) via PayPal to book your start date and confirm your spot in our project calendar. Exciting!

Once you put down your deposit, we assemble your welcome package which includes a project scope agreement which you’ll sign, details about the project timeline, what you can expect from us during our time together (and what we expect of you!), and a very comprehensive, super fun and useful project questionnaire.

From there, we work our way through phases 1-5 together (phase 5 = added value & it’s REALLY special!), the timing of which varies considerably depending on the scope of your project and the investment you’re prepared to make.

We only work with a few select clients a year to ensure your project sees the results and communication you’re paying for. We call this luxury client service. And it means we book up early so we encourage you to contact us now to get the conversation started.

In a hurry? Though we work quickly & thoroughly by habit, rush options are available. Just ask!

PHASE ONE: DISCOVERY

This is the most important part of our project together! It’s important to us that your design be both beautiful AND effective – it’s what you’re hiring us for.

So in phase one we’ll ask lots of questions that challenge you to think smartly and strategically. We’ll delve deep into your questionnaire and our previous conversations to establish who your ideal readership or client base really is, what your goals are and how we can create a design that will help you target them.

We also do a ton of industry and niche research at our end so we understand your market, the trends in it and how you can differentiate yourself while still measuring up to other leaders in your niche.

This is how we make you relevant yet distinctive and fabulous yet effective.

PHASE TWO: DESIGN

This is where we get to be creative and become your website & brand stylist.

Based on all the well organized information we mined in phase one, we’ll build a brand identity with you, with 2 draft revisions per stage of the project. This starts with the curation of a brand board.

A brand board includes colours, fonts, graphics, etc… that will shape the over-all feel of your design. Often clients like to create their own brand boards as well, though this isn’t necessary. But it’s a fun – and important – opportunity for you to have a say in your design.

During this phase we also move onto logo design samples, revisions & finalization (generally we suggest 3 logo samples per project but if you’d like to invest in more, we’re happy to accommodate that) as well as typography and brand colour style guides. The logo and guides will be the foundation for your brand.

Finally, combine all of the afore mentioned steps and we create an arsenal of tools to design one super amazing, results-oriented, custom website layout mockup. This is literally the layout for your website. We also include a handy dandy highlight brief that outlines the major highlights of your design.

It’s at this stage that you get to provide feedback on the website layout itself – it’s imperative that you communicate honestly and clearly with us so the remaining 3 phases of the project go smoothly.

Once we have your feedback we’ll go back and make any possible requested adjustments and resubmit the mockup for your approval.

PHASE THREE: DEVELOPMENT

Now comes the technical stuff – building the actual demo website on our server.

This phase can include elements such as:

  • Mobile responsive layout & menu creation
  • Brand integration (fonts, colours, icons, etc)
  • Newsletter optimization
  • E-Commerce functionality
  • Custom copy-writing & editing
  • Plugin installation & customization
  • Contact forms
  • Custom HTML, PHP & CSS coding
  • Social media integration
  • SEO (Google search) stuff

Once everything is installed, functional and awesome, we send the demo website to you for review. Unlike the mockup in phase two, this allows you to click around and see how the website actually functions. Generally draft revisions are minimal at this point because you’ve already approved the layout previously.

Easy peasy.

PHASE FOUR: LAUNCH

Let’s get this party started!

In Phase 4 we take your approved website from our server and install it onto yours. We ask you be reasonably available during this time in case any issues arise or we have any questions.

If this is a fully new installation, we work closely with you to ensure everything is seamless. If you already have an existing site, we ensure none of your readers or clients get lost by providing a maintenance mode that redirects them to your social profiles until we open ‘er up.

From there you’ll get one final chance to review the site and make sure everything is as it was in the demo.

And then bam: We launch. And you shine like the pretty penny that you are!

From there your design support time begins and we assemble your Exit Package which includes your image files and lots of resources and documentation on how to use your new design as well as other helpful information on how we might be further able to assist you in growing your brand.

And you get to enjoy your new website!


BONUS VALUE PHASE FIVE: VIRTUAL HAPPY {POWER} HOUR

BECAUSE your success is so important to us, we also include 1 Virtual Happy Hour with your design project so we can actually talk and walk you through the basics of your website and how to use it.

As a design client, we also allow you to move beyond the design and ask one pressing question you want an answer to with respect to your brand. This may be to do with making money on your site, identifying your readership and what they want, getting noticed, increasing your followers and traffic, how to approach clients or brand partners, why your socks shouldn’t match – whatever you want.

This hour is to help you learn your site and get a complimentary glimpse into what our Mentorship clients benefit from every day.

We treat your blog & business – and your success – as our own. Because it’s that damn important.
