To celebrate Canada's 150th, our class was tasked the project of choosing 5 Canadian icons to illustrate. Art, literature, sports, science, and entertainment were the categories I based my icon selections off of and chose to illustrate each icon using the Canadian 150 logo colours. Using a bold, geometric style to convey the importance of each icon to Canadian history, I utilized the illustrations across a variety of media and uses.

Why am I a designer?For me, design is truly all about communication. As I am a Visual Communications Designer, I thrive on creating engaging work to connect your unique message to your intended audience. I achieve this communication through my technical precision, organizational skills, sometimes heavy caffeine doses, and thorough exploration into your project needs.
I feel most fulfilled when I can collaborate with others to generate design solutions that respond to problems and create impact.
Why should you hire me?I look at each project I work on from different perspectives to truly understand the client's needs and what they're wanting to accomplish. This deep-dive into understanding your brand and project allows me the ability to help you craft your message and communicate this message appropriately to the right audiences.
My design process of rigorous thinking and bold ideas is where creativity meets rational thinking to provide inspired solutions that meet your needs.
This process paired with my detail oriented approach (giving attention to every aspect of each design project, from paper choice to materials used) provides the best outcome for your project.
I always look forward to collaborating, feel free to drop me a line to ask questions or to get to know me!
Where do I see myself in 5 years?Currently, expanding my business into a self-sustaining system by means of establishing a strong clientele base and gaining more experience in the design industry.
I would also love to mentor/teach/educate fellow designers through some outlet. I'm not sure whether that will be through the education system, workshops, video tutorials, lectures, speaker series, or just through working with others but I'm excited about the prospect of sharing my knowledge!
