As a long time client of Tilt Creative and Joni Millar I want to recommend her graphic design services to potential print and web clients.

Joni has provided me with graphic design, print production, website design and development services over the past 18 years – first in Calgary and now remotely from Calgary to me in Yellowknife. I value her creativity, practicality, work ethic and ability to find visually compelling, cost effective solutions that involve print production and web design.

I have no hesitation in recommending Tilt Creative to any organization looking for exceptional design and communication products production management services.
