The Interviews

Welcome to the heart of this project, the Canadian Women in Design interviews. Here you can browse through different professional women across Canada, working in the field of design. We’ll be releasing 1-2 interviews per month, so check back often for more inspiration.


Vikki Wiercinski

“I thought I like art, and I like computers! and promptly found myself learning Photoshop and designing posters for the high school’s drama class plays in the nerdy computer lab filled with 98% tech boys. We had a lot of fun, they all taught me how to play Dungeons and Dragons...”

Vikki is a multi-disciplinary designer who's made the 12 years of her career all about experimentation and entreneurship. Named Designer of the Year for her patterns and colourways at Mezzaluna Studio, Vikki also licenses custom artwork to companies focussed on the apparel, home goods and architectural fields. She enjoys making bright and bold graphic design work for local arts non-profits, and maintaining a visual arts practice in drawing and ceramics. Vikki is also an event director bi-annually curating and producing one of the best art and design fairs in North America: the Royal Bison Fair. [Read More...]
