My first employment following graduation was with a large Canadian grocery food chain at their head office. I started off as a Production Artist, and during my 3 years of employment was promoted to a Graphic Design position. My next job was at a smaller design firm, where I gained more experience working closely with clients on a wide variety of projects. After four years, I resigned and decided it was time to travel and return home to Kenya. I lived there for 6 months, volunteering my time as a Designer to a Graphics agency. I then moved to Doha, Qatar in the Middle East where I worked for 9 months at a large world-renown design agency.
I am currently in Vancouver BC, and feeling very grateful for the experiences that I have had. Working with people from different countries and cultures, has really given me an opportunity to explore the common aspect of design and to learn how to appreciate the way different cultures do things. I am very impressed by my fellow designers. Their passion for designing unique work will forever inspire me!
I approach my work with a unique perspective that takes into account your needs and your individual style. My style and technique are broad and flexible, having been developed over years of training and experience. Projects that I have worked on include corporate branding, promotional packages, designing food packaging, product labels, brochures, catalogues and posters, logos and illustrations that are used on packaging or promotional materials, as well as design advertising layouts for magazines and newspapers.
Whether you're looking for a simple logo or need help with a larger project, I would love to work with you. Feel free to look through my portfolio for samples of my work. If you have any questions, please contact me.
Thank you for visiting!
"I have had the pleasure of working with Rahama for a number of years on projects supporting the activities at the Steveston Community Centre, including the annual Steveston Salmon Festival.
Specific to the Salmon Festival, Rahama has provided the graphic design and marketing needs of the event with exceptional quality. She has an ability to take the thoughts and ideas we provide and turn them into exactly what we need design-wise. Her creativity has elevated our brand and image exponentially over the last several years which has made a difference in how we are viewed not only to the public, but also to our sponsors, advertisers, and event participants.
Rahama has a gentle personality and is very easy to work with. She is quick to turn around requests and works closely with us to ensure the final product is perfected as needed. She has produced many things for us including: special anniversary logos, event volunteer t-shirt designs worn by over 500 people, a variety of advertising for print and digital media, posters, signage, stage banners, event banners and similar related items. We look forward to continuing to work with Rahama well into the future.
Thank you for this opportunity to provide a referral for Rahama Johnson. She is a highly talented and creative professional designer who will do an exceptional job that focuses on meeting your expectations with the utmost care and attention."

"I have been working with Rahama since August 2014. Rahama has been in charge of creating our logos, flyers, and anything to do with our visual marketing, including our clothing items. Rahama worked alongside our IT manager to help create our current website. Rahama has an eye for identifying what your brand is, and what you want it to represent, then taking that and creating an outstanding visual message for you to send out. Rahama’s pricing is the best I have come across for the level of work she offers. Rahama will always go above and beyond, and she will not be satisfied with her work until you are. Rahama’s work is completed much faster than any other graphic designer I have ever worked with, and she is always willing to accommodate for any requests. I highly recommend Rahama for any projects you may have, based on her talent and skill, her work ethic, the amount of care she puts into each project she works on and based on the fact that she is an amazing person!!"

took to meet a deadline - and always did this with an incredibly
positive attitude. Rahama was well-liked by all of her teammates. Collaboration is definitely her strength!”
