Meade Design Group is proud to have Anna Cameron join the team as an interior designer, with many years of experience in the industry. Anna has lived on Vancouver Island for 16 years. She grew up in Australia and moved to Victoria with her family and now calls Canada her home. Anna graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design from Vancouver Island University in 2014. Since then, she has worked in the industry and traveled around Europe, where she fell in love with the different cultures and Architecture. Anna loves every aspect of design; from the problem solving, to the creativity, and the relationships that are developed with clients. Her abilities include drafting, 3D rendering, material and furniture selections, conceptual thinking and a bit of graphic design here and there. In her spare time, Anna enjoys going on hikes with her dog Scout, spending time with family, travelling, cooking, and catching up with friends over a tasty glass of wine.


Our very own Ivan Meade is the only West Coast fabric designer at Switzer Cult Creative in Vancouver. We could not be more proud of him!

Ivan and Jeff recently returned from a three week escape to Mexico.  Their whirlwind trip included Ivan's niece's wedding, his goddaughter's, Celena's baptism, a TV interview, two radio interviews and plenty of sightseeing with family and friends.

There are many many more highlights from Ivan's trip... take a peek on his Instagram!



Ivan's goddaughter Celina was born earlier this year and her baptism was a focus of his Mexico trip. Months before his departure, Ivan sought to create the most beautiful graphics to make the day extra memorable. With his heart and soul, he designed a soft feminine logo, event signage, dinner menus, and even custom scarfs for all the ladies attending the event.

What a lucky little goddaughter!

Here is everything Ivan designed for Celina, as well as photos and a video from the event.
