Current Project

Next to Lead

Next To Lead is a non-profit organization that aims to help youths with disabilities move smoothly into the workplace through a series of workshops and extracurricular activities. The organization has found success with over 25 participants for the first seminar.

Their were many challenges involved with designing a site that needed to meet the needs of so many individuals with specific disabilities. The design had to remain clean and ‘unbusy’, without to much distraction in the design itself. Accessibility options also had to be considered such as larger text and a high contrast option for visually impaired candidates

Gallop Facebook Ads

The designing of three facebook Ads for Gallop Labs Inc. was a project I was given during the recruitment process for consideration of a Junior Graphic Design position.

The objective of the ads were to drive mobile app marketers to Gallop's website to sign-up for a free demo.

Band Poster Designs

These are some examples of some Music Poster’s that I have made to promote local bands around Ontario. Creating these posters is something that I enjoy doing in my free time.

Functionally, designing posters allows me to improve my layout skills since there is often a lot of information and content that needs to be logically placed on a typical music poster ad.

James Bond 50th Anni.

This is a poster I designed in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of James Bond on film, and Skyfall (2012).

As a huge Bond fanatic, I thoroughly enjoyed working out the placement and layout of each individual object. I am quite pleased with the result of this piece.

Web Design & Development

zen

CSS Zen Garden

The CSS Zen Garden is an excersize that demonstrates the power of CSS and its influence on the internet. Only CSS is allowed to be changed, the excersize forbids and manipulation of HTML.

In my design, I wanted to inject an old fashioned hollywood feel into the website. This project was a school assignment and it showcases how much I have improved with CSS.

calendar

PHP Calendar

The PHP Calendar was a second semestre assignment that made use of Front-End develpment and PHP. It is a simple calendar that use the Date function.

Design wise, I used images from the Akira Kurosawa film "Seven Samurai", and used other elements of eastern culture to maintain a Japanese aesthetic.
