Make way for Ophiuchus

Quick illustration for the Capilano Courier. I was born and raised a Cancer, and apparently am a Gemini now, thanks to this guy. Just when I thought I knew myself inside out, astrology turns out to be a lie; time to explore numerology now to determine my future.

new blag

After internet stalking the likes of Jessica Hische and Jon Contino, I've started experimenting on my own hand-letting and typography. I love the look and feel of organic type, so I'm going to strive to become good at it. I'll still upload design and other art stuff here, but check out this tumblr for all the little type things I'll be spinning out

International Typographic Poster

Poster designed in the style of the International Typographic Style, based on a combination of Josef Muller-Brockmann's designs.

David Suzuki Foundation

More past class assignments.

David Suzuki Foundation uncovered many toxic chemicals in your everyday cosmetic products, but narrowed it down to The Dirty Dozen we should avoid. We did a project for the Queen of Green, showcasing some ideas and directions for them to take. I decided to develop a Homemade Spa kit for girls to make their own products, aiming to keep it fun and light rather than doom and gloom.

Auto Show

My submission for the Vancouver International Auto Show. My only real experience driving (without my mom) was doing burnouts and donuts in parking lots in Kelowna. I very luckily, happily, and thankfully took Third place!! Big thank you to the New Cars Dealership Association, and I've been inspired to finally learn to drive. And an even bigger congrats to Leah Vlemmiks for First and Sarah Eno for Second!!!

Check out theirs and all the entries

Empathy Series

 The project was about creating awareness through a three piece series about your assigned illness/condition. The series is to include a poster, an information piece, and a portable display for trade shows. My objective was to create awareness that anxiety disorder is a very real illness, that not only can hinder your life, but can be treated. 

The Poster. Big thanks to Katie and the class for exploring their club-party vibes.

The Flyer. This is to be stacked beside normal concert/dj event flyers in universities, coffee shops, etc. The average young adult would never get caught with a brochure about a medical condition, so this was aimed to catch them off guard, and show that they (or even their friends) don't need to deal with their fears or anxieties.

The Portable Display. Designed to draw people into the booth at tradeshows to learn what new techniques can be used to help with Anxiety Disorder.
