Corporate Photography

Melanie at Feisty Puffin covered the 2022 AAC/WAS Conference and Trade Show, the largest seafood-related event of it’s kind in Canadian history, and she delivered top quality, professional photography work and stunning graphics ahead of deadline. She was a pleasure to work with, and her passion for the work and our event was obvious. The event won a Destination St. John’s award thanks in part to her photos and presentation. We will hire again, at every available opportunity.

Family Photography

"This is the first time my little family and I had professional pictures done.  I'm truly stunned by the result.  You've captured us so well, I cannot pick a favourite photograph. I'm sure we'll be contacting you in the future for other sessions.  And I'll be recommending you to my friends! Thanks once again for your patience and talent!"

Logo Design

I had a vision in my head put I couldn’t put it into words. I knew what I wanted my logo to feel like and what I wanted it to represent but I had no idea where to start. Melanie and I had a great conversation about my goals and vision for my business and the end result was more than I could have envisioned. Her intuitive nature tapped into exactly the image I wanted to represent my services. I’m so grateful for her expertise and creativity. Thanks so much for my inspiring logo!

Graphic Design

Melanie at Feisty Puffin designed the Town of Petty Harbour-Maddox Cove’s 50th Year of Incorporation booklet.  She was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and designed a booklet that captured the community beautifully.  The Town would not hesitate to avail of Feisty Puffin’s services for future projects.
