You may be wondering who exactly is Backstreet Creative. We are a small graphic design studio (formerly Backstreet Communications) that has been a part of Edmonton’s design community for over 30 years. As you may have guessed from our name, we like to create. Create design. Create identities. Create communication goals that work for our clients. And sometimes we create cookies. On occasion we even share those cookies with our clients.
At Backstreet we have a wide range of experience in print design, building company brands, website development, environmental graphics, advertising (print and digital), product packaging, and even illustration. Our goal is to work closely with our clients to understand their needs in order to develop high quality design material, which in turn, enables them to communicate effectively with their customers.
We would love to meet with you and chat about your creative needs. Feel free to check out our portfolio, swing by the studio or get in touch by phone or email.

So give us the low down on what your biggest business dreams and goals are and we’ll work with you to make them happen through a well crafted creative strategy.
Services we provide:
Logos and Branding
Your logo is one of the first things customers connect with. We know it’s important to have a logo that reflects who you are as a business. We can create a logo from scratch, rebrand your company, build a more extensive brand or a corporate identity, and help manage your brand with visual identity standards and guidelines.
Print Design and Collateral
We have a motto at Backstreet: if you need to print it, we can design it. Over the years we have designed and printed a long list of projects such as business cards and stationery, presentation folders, posters, brochures, banners, calendars, banners, invitations, postcards, product packaging and much more.
Graphic Design + Digital Advertising
Sometimes a project doesn’t need to be printed but still needs to be engaging. Need some of you data transformed into an attractive infographic? How about a PowerPoint presentation for that important meeting? We can help with that. We can also design print ads, social media ad campaigns, direct mail, online newsletter templates and email templates.

From billboards to bus benches and bus shelters, wall murals, window graphics, vehicle graphics or tradeshow displays. No format is too big for us tackle.
