Craig Hermanson

Craig Hermanson Creative Director

Craig Hermanson Designer/Developer/Coder

A registered graphic designer and educator from Ontario, Craig graduated from York University’s respected design program in 1993 and never quit learning.

Fluently bilingual in “techno-babble” and ”plain-old-English” Craig quickly took his design skills to the emerging world wide web. Working with marketers and clients across North America he helped many companies and not-for-profits launch their first website before turning his attention to fixing others’ first attempts.

More than simply adding beauty, Craig solves client problems by reframing the questions, applying design thinking and refining the solution.

Associate developers, designers and copywriters are brought on to each project as required.

    Marshall McLuhan

  • The real questions are: Does it solve a problem? Is it serviceable? How is it going to look in ten years?

  • Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
