Your brand is your voice. You want it to be as loud as it can be. By creating solid brands from the ground up or re-positioning existing but dormant brands with strong potential, ammonite creative believes in helping you speak your message in a way that will be heard and remembered for as long as you need it to be.

By conducting extensive research and discussing with you in detail about what really makes you tick, I can create an unshakable foundation for your offering or service.

My biggest concern is your biggest concern when it comes to developing or marketing your brand.

I can help you with:

visual identity systems
identity style guides
stationery (business cards, letterheads, etc.)

Design is everything to me. And it’s everywhere you look, too. If you’ve made it here, I’m betting you know that design is more than just a bunch of flashy images and words too.

Menus, billboards, even your latest phone bill (yikes) all have one thing in common: they’re trying their darndest to send you a message. And the truth is, you can do it do.

Whether you’re in need of a menu, billboard or phonebill, ammonite creative is capable of doing it all. I can also handle logo, print and digital media design, layouts for all kinds of mediums, vehicle graphics, signage and the list goes on.

Just try me! I’m always itching to get my hands on something fresh and exciting to work with.

just some of the design I’m capable of:

direct mail
presentation folders
tradeshow displays
interior & exterior signage
window graphics
vehicle wraps
and etc. (the list goes on, seriously!)

You’ve heard it before. The importance of websites; how every small business needs one, how it’s the equivalent of having a phone number, or even a physical address. And I can’t tell you anything different.

A website can be a huge undertaking, and though there are plenty of tools out there to help you get it done, I know that not all of us has a month’s worth of time to sit down and actually get it done. Fortunately, that’s what I do.

If acronyms like SEO, CMS and API’s make you cringe, consider giving ammonite creative a shot. By crafting beautiful, functional and searchable websites through WordPress, I can help ease the burden for you and be your valet in the parking lot that is the web (How’s that for an analogy?)

my range of expertise includes:

web design through WordPress
custom graphic design for social media
online ads & banners
graphic emails & email signatures
digital newsletters
presentation templates
digital icons
just ask!

Illustration is a great way to inject individual, memorable and original ideas into a project. The other great thing is that it’s not as common as you might think. Fortunately, while everyone else is caught up in a purely digital lifestyle, combining digital and traditional mediums has never been more innovative.

If you’re looking at showing off your offering using a medium that will never become outdated, or just want to send Great Aunt Gladys a custom birthday card, let me know.

I love to draw! Here are just a few of items you could use me for:

basically anything else!


oh yeah, I'm here too:

Steven Krentz

ammonite who?

Pleased to meet you. I’m Steve,  freelance graphic designer and owner of ammonite creative, my personal full-service design studio based out of Calgary, AB. I’m interested in all things time-wasting (the internet), raw fish (sushi) and of course, making beautiful things for awesome people.

I come from an agency/print background and carry with me an education in print and design studies. I’ve been amassing a variety of different design skills and offering independent graphic solutions to a variety of clients for some time now.

Every new project, big or small, is an exciting adventure for me as a graphic designer. There’s no place I’d rather be than on the other end of your project, handling each step of the creative process so you can do what you do best.

By partnering with ammonite creative, you’re not only committing to incredible, lasting design value and innovative ideas, but efficient project management and peace of mind.
