Why am I an RGD?I became a Registered Graphic Designer (RGD) of Ontario in 2009, and have an educational background and diplomas in both Graphic Design (2003) and Electronic Prepress (2004). I became an RGD because the graphic design industry is generally highly undervalued. I believe that this association helps to recognize the importance of the work done by professionals in this industry and allows designers a place to come together.
Why am I a designer?Since I was a child, I have enjoyed drawing and designing, so when it came time to choose a career path, it was an obvious choice to pursue graphic design.
Most of my work consists of a variety of print-based designs to include magazine layout and advertising design as well as vector work, signage and branding.
Why should you hire me?I have been employed within the graphic design industry since graduating in 2003 in both a printing & publishing establishment and government operated communications departments. I have also worked as a freelancer on projects for local businesses and organizations outside of my employment to maintain a creative mix.
I have travelled to over 21 different countries around the world, seeing a large part of Canada, and the United States as well as Central and South America, New Zealand, Southern & East Africa, and Europe. Traveling is a large part of who I am and I believe that experiencing what the world has to offer lends a hand in my creativity.
I understand the importance of branding and corporate identity and the need for consistency to make a business or organization memorable. An effective design is reached through research and strategy so that a business or corporation can stand out from its competition, and I thoroughly enjoy helping businesses achieve this.
