Born on a ski hill

Sunshine Village

De.signs Nanaimo was born from the mountains, the founder and owner Andy Bowen, was looking for a job that would allow him to ski, be creative and work with his hands. Making a few signs for Sunshine Village in the Canadian Rockies was all it took.

Lake Louise
& Resorts of the Rockies

Andy then moved over to Lake Louise, which had a year round sign shop, and made signs for 7 different resorts most of which operated winter and summer. All the signs for the resorts were made in one shop, banners, wood ski run signs, metal souvenir signs, and promotional signs given out to ski shops to promote the ski resort.

Early Work

An example of the first big vehicle Andy ever did, a trailer for a snowmobile dealer in Revelstoke which made for a fun weekend of sledding after the installation was completed!

Mountain Biking
& the Great Outdoors

Skiing and mountain biking are a big part or what drove Andy into the sign business. Mountain biking continues to keep Andy in the woods as much as possible, This is a photo of Andy in the Whistler Bike Park a few years ago.
