The Meaning Behind The Name

Welcome to Swirl Creative! We are Terence & Katelyn, the husband and wife duo behind the business and the blog. We’ve been together since 2006 and married since 2012 (some days we can’t believe it has been this long, and other days it feels like forever!).  We spent the first 10 years of our relationship living in Burnaby before we bought our first family home in 2016 in Langley, BC. We love our new community and share our home with our two children, Theodore (who is 2.5 years old, full of energy & mischief, but also terribly sweet) & Annalise (who is 8 months old, has the attitude of a 16 year old, but also has a smile that will melt your heart).

Terence is a full time software developer & Katelyn is currently on maternity leave from her sales/marketing/conference planning job. It was our day jobs that led to our desire to start this business where we would be able to combine our passions to create personalized content for friends, family, small businesses, other entrepreneurs and anyone else who may cross our paths. Our services include website design & management, branding, content creation, social media management, & design work.  We love meeting new people and hearing about their vision, and then doing our very best to bring it to life. It has been such a wonderful adventure so far and we are so thankful for all the opportunities we have been given.

We came up with the name Swirl Creative as a homage to Katelyn’s late mother who always joked that we would end up with three babies: chocolate, vanilla, and swirl.  Well, first came Theodore, then came Annalise, and now here is Swirl!

This blog will be a space for us to share with you some of our most recent work, fun collaborations, and also a way to give you a look into the life of the real people behind the business.  We know this new adventure won’t always be easy, but we are looking forward to the journey!
