Hi! My name is Brian Goff and I’m a graphic designer, illustrator, photographer, and writer currently living in Calgary, Alberta. I was born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and after attending a visual arts program at Sheridan College, I returned to Newfoundland to enroll in Memorial University’s business program. Working for various clients along the way, including illustrating a book for a division of Lorimer, I earned my degree in late 2009. In 2011, I moved to Calgary for a position at a startup incubator where I worked on some cool design and branding projects. Now I’m working freelance on a full-time basis with a side focus on developing my microstock portfolios and independent writing projects.

“Here at cDemo we worked with several graphic designers to build out our corporate logos and branding material prior to meeting Brian. We struggled to find a designer that could deliver unique content that the whole team would fall in love with … Brian was and is a designer that brings projects and teams together. Thanks for all of your time and effort.”
Allan Chell, President, cDemo Mobile Solutions (www.cdemo.com)
“I was in a super big rush to have my company branded, as last minute my designer dropped the ball. Brian took my project on with ease and enthusiasm and delivered the perfect concept to me in just one day. He made me feel confident and was thorough in explaining his representation. I will use Brian again!”Tara Sweder – Executive Vice-President of Production, Reel Time Productions & Capital
“Brian was an exceptional self-manager who was always timely with his assigned work. When working with designers, many can have negative reactions if a client does not feel the work delivered meets their original vision. Brian was always very patient and thorough with any revisions we required – a trait I have not seen very often. On a monthly basis Brian always delivered a large amount of high-caliber content for T-Shirts.com. We would certainly work with Brian again in the future.”
Brad Kreutz – Owner, T-Shirts.com
“Brian helped our film, 32, with rebranding an existing concept. He stepped in and provided us with multiple designs for both our film’s logo and poster on a tight deadline that revolved around the final edit of 32. The hardest part about working with Brian was having to choose just one of the fantastic options he provided. Our production team will be using his services again, and would highly recommend his services to anyone else.”
Jeff Migel, Writer / Producer, “32”
“Working with Brian Goff has always been a pleasure ever since day one. He understands that businesses have different needs and is willing to provide his point of view while not impeding on our own project goals. Thank you Brian!”
James Shanks – Director of Reseller Relations, Schmooze Communications LLC
“Since discovering Brian through Twitter in 2009 I’ve hired him for four black and white illustrations. Two were semi-realistic comic-style illustrations. The other two have more of a cartoon feel. All are outstanding. Brian provides plenty of opportunity to tweak early drafts and is fun to work with throughout. I’m sure I’ll hire him again in the future.”
