I am a junior graphic designer at Cambrian College of Applied Arts and Technology and freelance when I can. I graduated with honours
at Cambrian's School of Art & Design and was recognized with the 50 Carleton Award of Excellence for Northern Ontario in 2012.
I enjoy studying languages including Finnish
and Korean, as well as art history. I also dabble
in astronomy in my free time!
Cambrian College front entrance wall graphic was created using existing campaign colours to create a vibrant, unique and inviting entrance to the college.
Front cover of the Fall 2013 Cambrian College Admissions Package that was sent to students after they have applied to Cambrian and have received an admission offer. It contains school policies and guidelines as well as important dates to remember and information on various college services. In this instance I made use of the campaign colours to create visual organization.
Rwanda20 (the first time Sudbury commemorated the 1994 Rwandan genocide) was held at Cambrian's Open Studio. Through the hard work of Mary Keown, I was able to come up with a concept that worked. Here I used the night sky as a reminder of the times of peace during the Rwandan genocide and an abstract representation of the Kagera River.
The Almighty Rhombus, a band hailing from Sudbury, hosted
a weekend-long festival of alternative music and called it the Big Basement Show, as it took place in a basement and was outfitted with pinball machines, couches and wood paneling.
The logotype conveys the aesthetic that the client was trying to create with the event.
To completely rebrand Icelandair.
The core focus in this design school project was to make Icelandair more unworldly and unique as the country itself.
Icelandair is the sole service to Iceland from North America, so it made sense
to draw inspiration from the land itself. Icelandair often advertises free layovers on flights to Europe–and for good reason. Icelandair: we'll take you there.
The original logo blended in and got lost. The new symbol is bouncy, memorable, comfy & unique—just like the country itself.
a well-known TV show in
an unconventional way.
The illustration is inspired by the iconic shot of Charlie's hand from the first season
of ABC's "Lost".
Carl Sagan once said:
"A new consciousness is developing which sees the earth as a single organism and recognizes that an organism at war with itself is doomed.
We are one planet."
I made this map to visualize our divisions, but also our unity as one planet.

Karl Lagerfeld said it best... 'I hate average'.
I made this for fun and posted it to deviantArt and it was subsequently picked up and used in
a marketing campaign along with other artists
at SXSW 2012.
Art Deco. Clean. Geometric. French. All these things come to mind. The challenge was to convey these things through the illustration, typography,
and the design of an Art Deco magazine cover.
I used Baudelaire for some of the headlines
in case you are curious.
The challenge was rebrand Sudbury Transit from the ground up. Public transit is seen as a stigma in Sudbury. This was my thesis project in college.
Poster concepts were built around the 'situations' that happen when you're riding public transit in an effort to
make it more friendly.
New transit maps. Daytime, weekdays shown here.
