Graphic Design

I have a BDes in Graphic Design from OCAD and over 10 years experience in graphic design, doing branding & identity, production design, illustration, screenprinting, and mad science.

Branding

I can build your identity from scratch, working with you to develop a logo and work from there until you're a fully fleshed out brand, with a strong image. Let me help you look your best!

Web Design

Custom responsive websites for your business to make a great first impression. Custom WordPress CSS theme edits, packages include personalized email and hosting taken care of for you.

Illustration

Image Translation and graphic reinterpretation of source material in digital form, or sometimes in watercolour gouache or pen. Adding of impressionistic or illustrative typography to images.

Printing

You can give me an idea and I can send you something you can hold in your hand, all in one deal. Let me handle pre-press and printing specifications, and forget about dealing with the printer. You tell me what you need and i'll make it and send it right to you.

Print Design

Brochures, magazines, postcards, buisness cards, stationary design, marketing materials, annual reports, magazine and book layouts. Anything even remotely needing a layout for print, I make that happen for you.

Identity

Who you are isn't just what you look like. It's not just about looking slick or modern, it needs to be authentically you. I can take your ideas and your personality and make something that you can feel comfortable and confident in.

Strategy

Be a Marvel and not a DC. Plan ahead and consider your moves carefully and you can create something well constructed and clever with everything you do.

Graphic Design...
& Strategy?

Yes, strategy. I argue that’s the real reason I get paid for what I do. Design is not taste, Design is deliberate decision making under the guidance of taste.

Often the presentation of information is as important than the information itself. Remember that 70% of spoken communication is body language, 23% is voice tone and inflection, and only 7% is your spoken words. But visuals can speak as well, and it rings just as true. It’s not what your saying, or selling, or thinking, or doing… It’s not even how. It’s WHY. 

Visual culture is a language all on its own, and if you never learned it, it can be hard to convey your feelings properly. It can be daunting, and seem pretty arbitrary unless you know the rules, to make an effective solution to what is, at the end of the day, a problem to be solved. But you wouldn’t want to have to navigate that yourself.

When I was fresh in school one of my professors said that design is making a million different little decisions and coordinating them to all sway a certain way – and doing it so the client doesn’t have to. That’s what designers really do. All the fancy typography and fashionable colour palates are just a means to that end. 

It’s my part to translate for you, so that you can tell your story before you ever speak a word to the world. Because even though the spacing on the margin of your logo is important, and you do want to convey the right message with the tone of your website, you don’t know enough about how to do it, and if you did, who has time for that?

There are templates of course. Templates look fine if you’re good with looking like everyone else, and settling for a “good enough” version of your vision. Something that looks nice but has no meaning behind it, no soul or life of it’s own. Just details plugged into a template.

If you want someone who is not just concerned about the colour palate or letter spacing, but if it suits you, and says what you want to say to the world, then that’s where I come in. It’s not about me – It’s about me helping you look your best. 

You & Me? We're going to make this happen.
