I am a creative who has worked in Graphic Design, Illustration, and Communications for over 15 years with small businesses, non-profits, and artists.
My first graphic design clients were bands, record labels, and recording studios, all connections which stemmed from years spent playing in bands (like Ghost House, Safety Show, Cadeaux, and Operation Makeout). I've designed record covers, CD packaging (heck, even a few cassette covers), along with t-shirts and countless gig posters.
For 8 years I was a Communications Coordinator at a large non-profit where I designed fundraising materials, invitations, newsletters, annual reports, booklets, advertisements, logos and brochures. One of the campaigns created in collaboration with Immersion Creative won an Applied Arts award and silver at the Summit International Awards.
Selected clients include: The MS Society of Canada, Immigrant Services Society of BC, Refugee Response Team – Fraser Valley, BC Professional Fire Fighter's Burn Fund, The Vancouver Humane Society, DOXA Documentary Film Festival and Mint Records.
Design inspirations: vintage typography and textile design, hand-lettering, Scandinavian illustration, geometric patterns, and the stunning view of the Salish Sea outside my studio window.What else should you know about me? I'm lucky enough to call Vancouver Island my home. I enjoy family, music, Back to the Future (I and II), and Karaoke. Also, Halloween is a VERY big deal in our household.
