I'm Rikki

Pleased to meet you

"The design world" can be an intimidating one (dare I say, even a bit pretentious at times?!) for both designers and those searching for the right designer for their project.

For this reason, I like to take less of a "strictly business" approach with my clients. Don't get me wrong, I take my work super seriously but why can't we also have a good time along the way!? I like to believe I'm pretty laid back, I love to laugh, bond over dogs, and travel but I especially love getting to know you and your business!

I feel that when you truly align with someone you're working with:

1) it doesn't feel like work

2) the final outcome is even better!

If you've got a project you're ready to get going, I would love to hear about it and see if we are the right team to make it happen!

So, get in touch and let's shake things up!

About me

The first time I really dipped my toes into the world of graphic design was when I founded my first company Big Wild Project –

An apparel and gift brand for dog lovers that donated to dog rescues with every purchase.

I did everyyyything myself from designing clothing graphics, building my website, creating marketing materials, you name it, with zero experience – And with all of that, I discovered I truly loved the process of building a brand! 

Next came my Etsy shop, Stay Wild Stamp Co. after I started making hand-stamped keychains and pet tags. (You can now find my website templates there too!)


In 2021 after landing some freelance design work, I decided to further my self-taught knowledge and earned a certificate in graphic + digital design from InFocus Film School, in Vancouver BC. Upon graduating, knowing I wanted to continue working for myself,

Shaker Design Studio was born!
