In 2012, designer Simon Laliberté had a crazy dream to unite graphic design and silkscreen printing in a commercial enterprise. Building on his years of experience in Montréal’s big creative agencies, he made that dream a reality with the launch of BangBang, a studio that would unite his two favourite disciplines in service of one another.
Ever since, BangBang has hit the ground running, tackling design and screen printing projects of all sizes and scopes for a wide variety of clients. Specializing in visual identity, packaging and printed media, the studio upholds a personalized collaborative approach, adapting to each client’s unique needs. Clients are kept close throughout the process, inspiring and immersing them in the studio’s passionate workflow.
It proved to be a winning formula. Today, 10 years later, BangBang has become a leader in its domain, decorated with awards both local and international.
In 2016 the studio even launched an innovative event service, further cementing its position as the silkscreen specialists. Marrying traditional with modern techniques, the studio goes mobile, bringing discovery of this inspiring craft out of the office and directly to the public. Spot them at events throughout the Montréal region and beyond in their trademark 1980 Grumman step-van.
Small though it is – for the moment – our team ensures efficient management, creation, and delivery of projects at all scale and complexity. Our services are executed with an attention to detail and dedication to achieving the absolute best results for each and every commission.
Culminating today in more than 12 years of experience in the domains of design and screen printing, his methodical approach and creative flair are deployed to full effect on every commission. Simon's work has been published and awarded both in Québec and abroad. He earned a place on 2017's Infopress 30/30 leaders of tomorrow list, and was a finalist for RBC's Emerging Canadian Designer 2019 award.
Thanks to the opportunities she found at BangBang, Marion is now a screen-printing adept who can ink with the best of us. Marion's journey continues with our team, as our new Project Manager and Coordinator, for both print and creative.
Curious, she is interested in illustration which has always held a special place in her heart. She continues to explore the many spheres of the profession on a daily basis and wishes to incorporate the medium of screen printing into her future projects.
An enthusiast of manual techniques, he has developed a keen interest in silkscreen, which he practices daily in our studio. He seeks to advance the craft of print design in every project he embarks on.
In 2021, her innate bilingualism and her love for the English language led her to add a new string to her bow: the study of English language education. As a hobby, Arielle rock climbs and hikes mountains, or by bike and her camera is never far away.
Recognized for her strong leadership, her limitless creativity and her legendary dynamism, Stéphanie has united her talents in the role as Head of Business Development, where she puts her diverse skill set, knowledge and experience to work in growing our enterprise.
Since the studio’s inception, we have collaborated with over 450 clients from diverse sectors both local and abroad, on projects of design and/or screen printing. Some of these clients return so often that they’re starting to feel like family! Here’s some examples: Some of these clients return so often that they’re starting to feel like family!

Basically, we couldn’t help but recommend them!” — Samuel Perreault / Co-owner
