Johanne Stewart, Creative Director
An experienced Creative Director/Designer with over twenty five years in graphic arts, publishing and print media, Johanne is responsible for implementing design and marketing ideas from initial concept through to final implementation of brand and product development.
Her obsession with Mac’s started way back in 1984 when her father purchased one for their family home. From there her destiny of being a designer had begun.
After several years of working for advertising agencies, printing companies, hi-tech firms and magazine publishers time had run its course, and the cubicle life was not enough of a challenge for the 'Desktop Diva' - who’s creative passion needed to be fulfilled.
In 2003, she met Paul who convinced her there was a niche market to create a full service advertising agency in Muskoka. Fast forward and the move to Muskoka was made. Being a strong conceptual thinker, an outstanding visual and strategically focused designer, Johanne is the pillar of pixels behind Dreams Becoming Reality Marketing.
When she is not creating crafty ad's Johanne loves to play in her gardens, hang out by the water with friends and soak in the beautiful Muskoka surroundings.
