Founded in 2012, White Canvas Design is a full-service creative studio located in a shiny new office space in Langley, BC. Our unicorn skills include custom WordPress website ux/ui design and development, branding and logo design for new or existing businesses, and graphic design for pretty much anything (packaging, advertising, catalogues – you name it!). We also dabble in content creation, copywriting and digital marketing by partnering with our talented third-party vendors.
We believe in timeless, minimalist design that creates room for your business to grow. Our simplistic, communication-first approach pairs best with businesses looking for meaningful and intuitive visual identity systems, user-friendly websites or wow-factor marketing collateral. We work with businesses of all sizes from startup solopreneurs to global companies with 3000+ employees. What’s our niche? Simple – good people. Good people who value collaboration, a warm cup of coffee, and making friends along the way. If this sounds like you, chat with us below.

Creative Director & Founder
Hello, it’s great to meet you! My name is Carly and I am the founder and creative director of White Canvas Design. What began as a freelancing side gig in 2012, quickly grew into this amazing team I get to collaborate with today.
I am thankful every moment for the fantastic clients we get to work with, many of whom have become friends over the years. My favourite part about this business is how dynamic each day can be. I love meeting fellow entrepreneurs, helping them find their brand identity and coming up with creative design solutions.
On the weekends I enjoy spending time with my daughter, Riley, and my fur-baby Bella. I also love going for a good run, exploring Vancouver through my camera lens, catching up on the latest ‘This Is Us’ episode, and trying my hand at new recipes in the kitchen.
Hello! My name is Kelsi, and I am a Graphic Designer here at White Canvas Design. I am a graduate from the Design Foundation program at Langara College, with a background in photography.
I have always thought of design like solving a puzzle. You have a bunch of tiny pieces that need to come together into one unified piece. Each one has its own challenge, and solution. I love laying out all the pieces and getting to solve these puzzles every day!
If I’m not at my desk thinking over a layout, I am most definitely with my dogs. We love to hike and camp, and just get off the grid when we can.
Lead Front-End Developer
Greetings! I’m a gal called Jen and I’m a front end developer who enjoys making mobile and web applications feel alive. I’m a full-stack developer graduate from Red Academy.
I fancy turning great designs into clean, functional code. When I’m not coding, I love to spend time with my cats and plants.
Junior Graphic Designer
Hi! I’m Jill, a Junior Graphic Designer at White Canvas Design and a graduate from BCIT’s Graphic Design Program. I have a background in Baking and Pastry Arts and plan to complete a BBA with a focus in Marketing Management.

Junior Graphic Designer
Hello! I’m Sarah, a passionate graphic designer and graduate of BCIT and Emily Carr’s Communication Design program. I also have a background in education, with a B.Ed. and B.A. focusing on English, art, and design.
My love of graphic design started when I was young and I like to joke that, as a daughter of an engineer and a painter, I became the perfect blend of my parents – a creative visual problem solver! As an innately curious and empathetic person, I appreciate how design enables me to learn about the world and respond directly to the needs of others in order to communicate in an impactful and engaging way.
When I’m not glued to my screen creating, I enjoy hiking and exploring BC, trying a new craft brew, and attempting to learn dance moves on my roller skates.
Hello! I am Jenny and one of the Front-End Developers here at White Canvas Design. I recently pivoted my career as a Graphic Designer and graduated from BCIT as a Front End Developer.
I love all things design, am passionate about the creative process, and love to see a well planned project come to life. When I am away from my laptop, you will either find me at one of my sewing machines, or exploring our beautiful trails on my bicycle. I also love to bake, cook, and spend quality time with my family.
Hi, I’m Skye! I’m a front-end developer graduate from BCIT and have a background in the arts, with a BFA in Visual Arts.
I love seeing and making things come to life- from the first line of a sketch or a line of code to a finished painting or complete website. I’m an avid appreciator of anything cat-related and can be found fawning over cute pictures when not otherwise preoccupied.
Hi! I’m Rosa, a Front-end Developer at White Canvas Design. I feel great joy to build client-centered solutions to a variety of challenging projects.
I am a creative, innovative, and comprehensive full-stack web developer with a background in Chemical Engineering(BSChE). I am also a mom of two cats, Malang & Lian, and a person who is fond of creatures that are functionally and aesthetically pleasing.
Hello! I’m Manisha, a Social Media Coordinator & Content Creator here at White Canvas Design. I recently graduated from KPU’s BBA program in Marketing Management with a minor in English. I am in love with all aspects of the creative process and can’t wait to tell your story through the power of social media.
When I’m not sitting in front of my computer screen, you can find me winding down with a good book, spending time with my friends and family, or being overly passionate about my favorite TV shows and movies (Can you tell Film Studies was my favorite class?). I also enjoy traveling and learning about different cultures through their art, food, language, and stories.
Hello! My name is Ashley and I am in Client Relations here at White Canvas Design Studio. I have been in client relationship roles for over a decade, originating in Building Supplies and eventually leading into the Marketing industry where I found my true calling. For me, it is the perfect blend of working with businesses who are excited to grow, building relationships and getting to be creative to find the perfect solution for the company’s needs.
I am coming to White Canvas as I return to work from my Maternity Leave therefore you can imagine when I am not working I am soaking in as much time with my daughter, Summer. I can not fail to mention my fur-baby, Cali, my Australian Shepard who I joke is my “first born baby”. Some hobbies of mine include camping, scouring Homesense for the latest deals and working on home renovations.
Bella is our office therapy dog. She reminds us to take breaks, crack a smile during deadlines, and acts as inspiration during our design process. It’s safe to say she loves people, salmon treats, and running circles around us at the park.
