At our creative studio, we love to create unique Chalkboards & Artistic Decor.
Charlie Rabbit was founded by Matthew & Melissa Johnson in Spruce Grove, Alberta in early 2013. Their story began like most family endeavors, through the birth of their baby girl, Charlie. The inspiration came while Melissa and Matthew were trying to decide how to decorate the nursery for their little newborn daughter. Looking around at different ideas, they were inspired by the chalkboard trend in home decor.
Matthew and Melissa then decided to combine the creativity of chalkboards with functional decor. Much like today, Charlie Rabbit’s early days were met with lots of experimental designs, shapes, themes, colors and materials.
Our future goal is to continue designing new and exciting creative products. All with the goal to transform how people see & use their home decor.
As a small family business we aim to stay true to these three goals:
We are committed to helping you unleash your inner carrotivity. All our chalkboards are designed with the goal to help you enjoy your decor in creative ways. Be it subtle or extreme, our chalkboards will help you to leave your personal mark.
Charlie Rabbit wants you to enjoy your your chalkboard for years to come, therefore we manufacture each chalkboard by hand, using high quality sturdy materials.
Charlie Rabbit believes in helping our community. We are committed to do what we can to give back to those in need. From Santa’s Anonymous to Cancer fundraising, Charlie Rabbit is there to help when it can.
We are a family of four, all with own special roles to play.
As Co-Founder of Charlie Rabbit, Matthew Johnson’s role has been as designer, producer, sales, web-developer, manufacturer, promoter.. the list goes on! His lifetime collection of skills has benefited him plenty.
Matthew holds a BFA in Design, from the Alberta Collage of Art & Design. He has been a designer for over 20 years now in several forms of media. Born and raised in Edmonton, AB; His childhood was filled with a love of Art & Comic Books. It was this background that helped Matthew to come up with the Idea of Charlie Rabbit, and the modernization of the Chalkboard.
