My name is Vanessa Raven-Vipond and I am an Illustrator and Graphic Designer.
After years of working in-house for other companies, I started my own Graphic Design business, Sea Salt Design, in 2015. This small studio, first opened and served small businesses in Comox, B.C. Then, in August of 2019, I moved to the Annapolis Valley and am now serving clients locally, across the country and around the world.
My work has been featured in many interesting places including: The Georgia Music Hall of Fame, for their Otis Redding induction and exhibit; in the movie The Mermaid Chair, starring Kim Basinger; in Tourist Attractions and Gift Shops across Canada including at the Toronto Airport, Pioneer Village Ontario, Marineland Ontario, Gastown, Vancouver, Whistler, Big White, Calgary Zoo and along Government Street in Victoria among others. I have also created hundreds of brands, characters and images for Moon Beam Baby USA, ScubaTogs UK, Cook Design Studios and Mega Screen Productions, in Victoria B.C. and The Health and Safety Board, Yukon.
I also create my own greeting cards and products featuring my whimsy characters.
To create my Illustrations, I work in pencil, ink, watercolour, acrylic and on my computer in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
I look forward to teaching classes in drawing, painting and digital art and continuing to learn from others.
