Harshell Farms: This illustration was produced for a client in the development of their branding and became the final logomark for their visual identity. Harshell Farms is a successful local family farm that has a strong vested interest in agri-education and social responsibility. Illustration reflects the farm itself with its rolling fields of crops, winding river, and trees planted in memory of a loved one.
Carboneyes: An illustration done as a cover option for the July/August issue of Policy Options magazine. The cover story was regarding market based economic incentives to reduce carbon emissions, and how provinces are increasingly adopting cap-and-trade strategies.
PSAC Organizational Diagram: The Public Service Alliance of Canada required a diagram developed that would illustrate in an organic and engaging way how the structure of the organization works. The diagram is used as a teaching tool in workshops and training sessions.
Family Bicycle Club: An illustration for the Family Bicycle Club logo — a group of family and friends within the Mississippi Mills area who work to bring together members of the community of all ages and ability levels to get outdoors and enjoy fun and friendly bike rides.
Map of Almonte: The Town of Mississippi Mills (Almonte) commissioned an illustrated map of downtown Almonte for their Mainstreet Almonte Attraction and Promotion (MAAP) initiative. Client requested stylized illustrations of notable local architecture. An engaging, lively map illustration was developed with a fresh, cool colour palette and agreeable textures and typography.
Physical Health Education Canada: Illustrations created for a fellow design boutique in Kanata. Physical Health Education Canada put together a series of online tools to assess physical literacy in our education system. Fifteen illustrations were developed to help educators illustrate to children the processes required for each activity.
Dog World: A very successful local dog-boarding facility required concepts for a logo design (although ended up choosing something a little less lively). Several animated and boisterous canines were dreamed up to convey a sense of fun and to capture the essence of the kennel’s core services.
Sally the Salamander: A fun illustration produced for a holiday self-promotion several years ago, this illustration depicts one of our brand personalities, the salamander, only brought even more to life with big puppy dog eyes, a smile, and appealingly holding a Christmas tree decoration.
Doppelgänger: Originally developed as a cover option for the May/June issue of Policy Options magazine, the illustration was created to represent the polarization of wealth in Canada by referencing the doppelgängers found in Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities. The client loved the illustration and decided to have it in its own right within the article pages.
Free The Children – Life in Action: Illustrations created for the Life in Action program developed by Free The Children, an international charity and educational partner. Posters were designed to educate and empower youth to change themselves and the world through healthy daily choices.
Free The Children – Adopt A Village: Adopt A Village was created by Free The Children to combat child labour globally. Posters were designed with cheerful cutout illustrations to convey a simple “math” concept: 1$ will buy $10 worth of medical supplies, $50 will buy a family a dairy goat, etc.
Hospital for Sick Children – Empower Reading Program: The Empower Reading program was developed by the Hospital for Sick Children and includes a suite of products that methodically address the learning needs of even the most differently abled reader. Bright accessible illustrations were created to invite young readers in, and over 200 simple black and white drawings were created for the various teaching tools engendered for this comprehensive program.
