Experience
Nov 2009
Graphic Designer
A large variety of elements were developed in order to create one cohesive identity for emerging web based learning management system, Matygo. Having collaborated with the Matygo education developers since 2009, various elements evolved based on their immediate needs. These elements include, but are not limited to, the creation of “Maty,” the Matygo mascot, the business card and t-shirt design, multiple icon sets, and the largest undertaking: marketing page web plate series.

The major visual concern in building all of the elements for Matygo is the connection to state of the art, modern, web 2.3 look and feel. Thus it is accepted that the designs will have a quick turnover period, in maintaining this connection. For example, the initial icon set was created first, and therefore took on the glassy look of web 2.0. By the time the second icon set was created for the marketing page, noise texture and shadows were implemented. The secondary visual concern is simplicity and consistency, thus the colours and line weight of the logo are often a source of inspiration for other elements.

Web Plate Designer
when2golf.com is a website that is currently under development that serves to quick and easy access to the availability of any golf course within a specified location and radius. The long term goal is to provide an easy means to book tee times as well

The design was required to be quickly legible over all else. A secondary concern was that it must stand out from other sites in a similar field. Designers and developers agreed to accomplish this task through association with the web 2.0 look and feel.

Each year Musart, a non profit society, hosts a weekly concert series to showcase local artists and partake in the community. This series showcases 24 original and local artists/bands, with each artist contributing to a 2 part CD compilation

A designer was required to create a cohesive set of posters varying from billboard to tabloid sizes, as well as the associated CD. In addition to this, a second set of signs were created to be used annually, instead of in association with the 2011 design. As this is a non profit society, the design work was volunteer.
