Inspired by Michael Bierut's 100 day project I set out to create my own. I decided to do a 100 day project to improve on developing different styles, and getting myself in the habit of creating something everyday no matter the result.
Here is a selection of my favorites from the project, this is an ongoing project and you can view all the work on my dribbble account, here:
This project is not associated with Tally Ho. Tally Ho is a restaurant in Hamilton that has strong ties in the community. Established in the seventies, the restaurant’s look is slightly out-dated and I felt it needed to be revitalized. I wanted to modernize the brand while maintaining it’s roots.
I'm starting a 52 Week Album Art project, where I plan on listening to a few different bands and then mashing them together and creating a cover for the new band.
The band is called "Sons of the Silent Age" I took it from a Bowie song.
As a huge fan of the novel “Horns” by Joe Hill, I felt compelled to create my very own cover for the book to represent my interpretation of the novel. The book tells the story of a young man that is being framed for his girlfriend’s murder, and is surprised to wake up one day with horns protruding from his forehead. The novel follows the protagonist trying to solve the mystery of his girlfriend’s death and uncover the meaning behind the horns. While classified as a horror novel, the book resonates with me as a love story. As such, I wanted to showcase the elements of love that stand out amidst the darker themes in the novel.
As a fun side project, a friend and I began home brewing. For our first brew, named “Attack of the Blonde”, I designed a label that features a giantess woman terrorizing a city. I was interested in a creating a gig poster aesthetic to the label and implemented some halftone textures to give it a retro feel.
Please note that this project is not associated with Rancho Relaxo. This is part of an ongoing branding project I’m working on for Rancho Relaxo, a Mexican cuisine food truck that travels the GTA.
The current vehicle features a mascot laying on a skateboard, I went in a different direction and decided to create a illustration based vehicle. The website is a simple landing page showing the adventures that await.
A selection of Album Covers I’ve worked on.
This is a project I completed during school, wherein we were asked to create a logo and website for an esteemed Montessori. The school wished to be branded as a fun, but highly respected establishment. As such, the colour palette and illustrations I chose embody a playful atmosphere while maintaining a professional tone.
A selection of Logos I designed for small businesses during my time at A Nerds World, a graphic and web design agency in Toronto.
I wanted to take part in a designers challenge called Futuralbum, where you take images from the British Library on Flickr and can only use the typeface “Futura”. I chose Muse “Absolution” and played on the religious aspects of the album.
I created this poster as a gift for a friend. The goal was to create a fun, rough, poster for the team.
