Anything You Need



Hello! Mainstay is a

creative studio. We love design, forward thinking and white space.



Mainstay is lead by Marina Hawkeswood, who holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from the University of British Columbia and a diploma in Broadcast and Media Communications from BCIT.  Most recently, she earned a certificate in Graphic and Digital Design through New York's Parsons Design School. 


Marina has worked in the communications industry for 11 years, most recently as the Manager of Communications for the Canadian Sport Institute. She has also spent time with VANOC, CBC's Hockey Night in Canada, CTV Vancouver, and the BC Lions Football Club.

She lives on Vancouver Island with her husband and two young sons.
