Illustration

Growing up I LOVED to draw. It started with tracing Disney characters and grew into shaded pencil sketches and then onto acrylic paintings. My notebooks were full of doodles and my paint trays were never clean.

Agency Life

While working as a graphic designer for a small Southern Ontario agency, I had the opportunity to work on many interesting projects. Two of the most memorable include, creating the identity for a wine, art and food festival, and designing the packaging for a pea farmers product to be sold in grocery stores.

Hungry?

Tasked with creating the brand identity and marketing collateral for a 24hr diner in Kingston, ON was a lot of fun. This "biker" inspired diner / bar serves all day breakfast and a mean burger. A new restaurant named after the owner, the logo needed to be something fun, retro and inviting.

A Picture is worth a thousand words

Not only do I have a design background, I also studied photography. Though I don't shoot commercially anymore, I still have fun taking pictures of friends, family and travels.

For the love of logos

My true passion is working with businesses to create brands that speak to who they are and attract their ideal audience.

Creating a brand goes far beyond the logo, but having one you feel proud to show off is a strong starting point to growing your successful business.

Co.Volt is a light manufacturer who is in the process of patenting an exciting new lighting system for car mechanics.    The goal was to create a brand identity that reflected the car industry with a slightly vintage feel.

McKeil Construction is a new construction company offering excavating, drainage, retaining walls etc.    As a one man show, he needed a brand that made him appear larger than he was and allows him to scale and grow.

A Southern Ontario Optometrist, Rachel was taking over a practice and wanted a new logo for her new start.    Focusing on soft eye colour tones, we incorporated the iris shapes with a subtle rounding to highlight the text.

Rhonda of "Feet First" was looking for a simple update to her existing logo.     She wanted something a little more modern, but needed to keep the foot graphic similar, as she had existing brand recognition.

An Ottawa based photographer, Luther needed a logo to represent his strong, bold personality and shift in business to include video.    We kept the colour palette simple with dark and light grey tones in order to let his photos stand out.

Fun fact

When I was studying Graphic Design (over 10 years ago), I worked part-time for a company called "Pictographics" in Sault Ste. Marie. One of the client projects I worked on was for the Sault Downtown Association.

They wanted something that looked like a cartoon / sketch, and that was fun and welcoming. The logo that is currently in place on street signs was designed by me!

(It is in need of a long overdue update. *Facepalm* So many things I would change about it now that I "know better.")
