Today was the day that I went on a press check for my first printed collection of my work. It’s going to be a book.
Thanks to Chris Young at The Prolific Group for seeing this project through!

While at ClarkHuot/Cocoon, I was lead designer for a rebrand of Akman Property Management. I was responsible for ensuring that Akman Property Management’s new look reflected the company’s newly defined traits: trustworthy, modern, and professional. Akman Property Management provides services to rental property owners, condominium owners, and residential tenants.

For Royal Canoe's debut LP, Today We're Believers, I was asked to design a cover that would reflect the band's collective love of summer in Winnipeg. Royal Canoe's music is explosive and colourful, which helped guide the album's look and feel. Royal Canoe provided two artworks by Danny O’Connor and requested that I combine both images, adding additional textures and elements. The result was an image representative of the feeling the band had hoped to portray.

Inspired by a suburb of the same name in Melborne, Australia, Fitzroy embodies character, simplicity, and above all, great food. When the restaurant’s owners came to Vantage Studios, I was excited for the opportunity to create their brand. From logo, stationery and typography, to menu and signage design, Fitzroy’s brand is clean and functional. With a simple design, visual spacing is an essential detail and became an integral part of Fitzroy’s brand.

When it came to online materials, I oversaw the design of the website in addition to ensuring that Fitzroy had all of the necessary tools needed for a consistent social media presence – including a vertical version of the logo that fits nicely in a square.

The front and back of a handbill I made for The University of Winnipeg Students’ Association’s 4th annual Grass Routes (a sustainability festival). P.S. I also did the branding for Grass Routes 4 years ago.

Here is an annual report that I designed for the Winnipeg Committee for Safety while I was creative director at Vantage Studios and Print Shop. The visual theme for the annual report was “layers”. This was executed through the use of overlaying colours, varying paper widths and custom architectural photography shot by Steven Ackerman.

The final 6 Port-a-Posters that I made for the 2013 Rainbow Trout Music Festival. I made these posters as part of my sponsorship to go in the port-a-potties and give people something to do while doing their biz.
