This festival identity was created in collaboration with Studio 123 for the 2014 River & Sky Festival in Northern Ontario. A custom illustration was created and implemented across a variety of festival materials including t-shirts, tickets, buttons, stickers and festival booklets. The designs were later revised to create promotional materials for the 2015 early bird Christmas packages.
River & Sky is a small camping and music festival in it’s 7th year which has grown based on it’s core principles of community, sustainability, Canadian talent and simple living. Based in the River Valley region of Northern Ontario, the three day festivities include camping, family friendly activities, stargazing and live music under the stars.

The focus of this package design was to create a collectible multi-use product which will help eliminate post consumer waste. The Black Pearl Rum Collection contains 3 types of premium rum, shot glasses, towels, coasters, a serving tray and shelving. The shot glasses are wrapped with a replica of the wax seal used on the bottles. These wraps can be removed and are fully functional as a wax seal.
A lack of life documentation means a child has no roots to their past, and so a weaker foundation upon which to build their future. The Life Box is designed to create a simple solution to the issue of life documentation non-compliance.
The box contains: Life Book and Snap Shot parents manual, deck of life documentation project cards, children’s digital camera, USB stick, apron, art project and tutorial to learn documentation, art supplies and notebooks. It is the complete guide to documenting the life of a foster care child.

I had the pleasure of working with Studio 123 on a custom illustration for the La Slague 2014-2015 season pamphlet. Such fun!
"La Slague is somewhat of a mythical beast. Forward-thinking franco-ontarian hippies spoon-carved a small music venue out of the bedrock beneath downtown Sudbury's Ste-Anne-des-Pins church in 1963. Today, 51 years later, La Slague unveils it's 2014-2015 season." - Studio 123
After obsessively tracking my musical consumption over the course of two weeks, I created this music themed infographic to display the results. What am I listening to right now? The 2014 Juno Awards Nominees!
As part of my third year in the York University/Sheridan College joint program in design, I had to complete a design internship. Underline Studio took me on and this is a booklet detailing my awesome experience with the folks at this fantastic studio.
From diapers to grocery bags, today’s throwaway culture has become dependent on the ‘convenience’ of plastic products. However, how convenient will it be 100 years from now when the oceans and all of the marine species within are choking on our plastic waste? This infographic piece was created to educate viewers about the harmful effects of plastic bottle usage on the environment. The final fold out is a large scale poster demonstrating how plastic toxins end up in the food chain. An accompanying interactive digital publication was designed eliminating the need for the piece to be printed.
The goal of this package was to create a recycled paper container without adhesives in order to minimize the environmental impact of take-out packaging. The result is a single use take-out container made with one piece of paper utilizing folding and tab locking techniques. The V-Pleat accordion folding technique allows for two sizes of container that act as a bowl when fully extended. The container has 2 large flat surfaces ideal for branding which eliminates the need for extra labels, minimizing environmental impact. It is collapsible for easy transport and fully recyclable.
