Smerk Design has worked with numerous clients across a wide variety of industries. Large corporations, unions, charities, small start ups;  whatever your needs, I can help.

A dynamic new logo, a re-design of a tired old one, a complete branding of your whole organization – I can help your company put its best foot forward!

Take your photos to the next level. Touch up portraits or headshots, restore old family photos, remove distractions. Let’s make the most of your shots!

A poster for an event, an ad for the newspaper, a flyer for a sale. Whatever you’re promoting, I can make sure the right people notice it.

A brochure for your organization, a program for your play, a menu for your restaurant, invitations for your wedding. You know what you want to say, let me worry about making it look good.

From simple one page “business card” websites to more in-depth multi-page websites, I’ll  give potential customers a memorable way to find out what you’re all about.

Representing your brand on social media is more important than ever. Facebook events need headers, Instagram posts need compelling photos, Twitter accounts need profile pictures. I can take the guess work out of an ever changing medium.

ABOUT Smerk Design

Smerk Design is the creation of, me,  Garth Merkeley, from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I am an Honours graduate of the Red River College Graphic Communications program, and I also hold a B.A. and B.Ed from the University of Winnipeg.

I have over 10 years of graphic design experience. I honed my skills while working as the public relations manager for Canadian sketch comedy troupe Hot Thespian Action, of which I am a member. For Hot Thespian Action, I was responsible for the design, creation, and maintenance of our extensive website, as well as our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts. I also designed all aspects of our branding, including logos, business cards, buttons, T-shirts, posters and more. The Hot Thespian Action posters have become a trademark of the company and as a result, the iconic images have been featured in newspapers, magazines and advertisements across North America.

I am the graphic designer for Salisbury House restaurants, a popular Manitoba chain, taking care of several weekly ads, menu design, in-store promotions, social media posts, website updates and much more.

In addition, I work with a wide variety of companies, organizations and institutions on projects ranging from the small flyer to large branding projects.

I look forward to working with you to get your projects realized!
