I take pride in helping my client's reach their goals. Understanding the goals of my client ensures that I use the right tools for the job. Here are some of the goals my work has helped them reach:

  • Jazz Financial: 100% retention of clientele, from employment at a national financial corporation, to a successful small business, with a versatile and playful identity package.

  • Feeding Ourselves and Others: First annual fundraiser event selling out months in advance, with an illustrative awareness campaign.

  • Victoria Film Festival: Broad brand recognition of their single screen theatre The Vic and doubling of the theatre's average attendance, with an identity and interior decoration that is unmistakable.

  • Saint Barnabas Church: Broader awareness of their organization and facilitation of their donor and volunteer support, with a dynamic logo and identity package.

  • Compost Education Centre: Broader public and partner organizations' awareness of their programs and mandate, with a dynamic logo.

  • Thomis Electric: Clearer identity fostering recognition, with a logo and corporate collateral.

If you think you need someone like me on board your project send me an email and we can arrange a phone, skype or in person meeting. Find out more about me below.



Why you would chose me:

I am an illustrative designer, which means that my skill set is geared towards creating an image(s) to solve editorial, publication, communications, branding, packaging or marketing problems. In short, Graphic Design is the combination of illustrations, photographs and type (some folks say font) in order to communicate an idea to an audience where as Illustrative Design is the creation of an image and its combination with type in order to communicate an idea.

The tools I use include pencils, pens, paint, adobe illustrator, adobe photoshop, adobe indesign, squarespace, creative direciton, adobe acrobat and my smarts. How do you know if you need an illustrative solution? While my strength is creating illustrative solutions I pride myself on knowing when it is useful and when it isn’t. Sometimes the best solution for a project is illustrative, sometimes it isn’t. We figure that out before we decide how the problem should be solved.

I am also very organized, time sensitive, dependable and a clear communicator.

 

Here is a fun side project I am working on, subscribers tell me regularly it is what they look forward to on Sundays.
