I love how the typography reminds of me a retro sneaker company. I think it’s got soul and the manipulation of the sizing and color makes it super easy which is intregral to any real winning design, The middle card was for a client who is just starting out as a sound engineer. We sat down together for an hour and banged this out pretty quick. It’s nice when they have a clear idea of what they want and don’t mind watching you work. The bottom card is actually a reject for a client’s production studio company. He was happy was the one with the one he decided upon but I always liked this other version This was my revisit which I much prefer and might repersuade him to adopt as the more deserved logo. business cardsadvertising pldpld
  4. 4. Title: I Drink Beer (When I’m Not Drinking Wine) Description: A rebrand of the original 1957 Pacific Pilsner design including their first sailboat and waves. I loved the old school look and blue and white combination and after working a decade in the liquor industry, I know the clientele firsthand and they keep it simple. The rich navy blue would also fit in perfectly with the dark forest green of their #1 selling beer, Caribou. Title: The Sasquicentennial Description: Serendipity is a wonderful thing. I had thought about using a sasquatch as part of the branding and while researching what gifts to give to a 150 year old for their birthday, I learned the name of the anniversary was the sesquicentennial, The play on words was too good to pass up and the message wrote itself. Well, not really, it was me. brandingbranding pldpld
  5. 5. Title: Issues Description: The editor over at Gargoyle Publications approached me to work on their latest ‘zine. The article had been written by Becca Clarkson and the illustrations were done by Peter Warkentin but I took that work and laid it out using personalized character and paragraph styles I developed in InDesign. Title: Farce Description: Class project of predominantly of my own photos and writing with one article being copyright free material. Styled after the more humourous aspects of magazines like Esquire, GQ and The New Yorker. I ended up learning a lot on what does make one find something funny. magazinesmagazines pldpld
  6. 6. Title: Enough Information Description: We were paired with different departments to develop new branding. There are many versions but these were voted the top three with the largest one being chosen to represent the school’s learning centres on various campuses. Title: Day/Night Description: The main poster was actually my second choice. However, in retrospect I think it’s the more solid design and I would chose to work with that again with the invention of time travel. Title: Crumbs & Fingers Description: Class project where we were randomly assigned fairy tales and themes. I was asked to make a comedy out of Hansel & Gretel. I did some research and leaned towards a German-Canadian brother & sister cop duo. The bottom right design is my nod to 80s foreign movie posters but the first poster was the final submission and one of my favorites. postersposters Canada’s Toughest German Cops Meet Their Greatest Match, Eh? ‘MY NEW FAVORITE MOVIE!’ - OPRAH WINFREY TWENTIETHCENTURYFOXPRESENTSADOUBLEPLAYPRODUCTION CRUMBS&FINGERSSTARRINGPAULLANDRYLISAMOLLEELLENPAGETOMHIDDLESTONWITHSIRBENKINGSLEYAS‘THEDOVE’AND JENNIFERANNISTONAS‘THEWITCH’bWERNERELLISONwJACKSONPOLLOCKfGUILLERMODELTOROdSTEVENSODERBERGH cFILLMORESLIDES ePJSANDERSgELAINESMITHsILMtICE-T nTHEBROTHERSGRIMM oPAULLANDRY&SPIKELEEjMELGIBSON pBRADPITT&MARTINSCORSESEkPAULLANDRY No Fun In Ze’ Oven!

  7. 7. Title: Webslinger Description: My first hand coded responsive web site. It’s a portfolio site I put together to showcase my work. It takes real strategy and a lot of trial and error to get these to behave properly and it was extremely rewarding to know that I can build my own little corners of the internet with plenty of hashtags, semi-colons and parantheses. Title: You’re In The Army Now, Font Description: A photographic essay highlighing the little things and turning them into something much bigger. I do have plans to revisit this method in the future as it’s an inventive method to create organic forms of typography. typographyweb design pldpld
  8. 8. Title: The Spoiler Room Covers Description: I’ve been running Facebook groups for years. The Spoiler Room was the first one and it’s based around television and movies. It still receives hundreds of comments a day and has spawned over +100 plus cover photos based around the word ‘spoiler’, these are some of my favorites including the 5 year anniversary cover which includes the 134 that were done by that time.
