getting to tomorrow: a report on canadian drug policyI designed this report for CDPC back in 2013. It documents the failing role that current federal drug policies play in supporting safety and health, while also drawing attention to the acute need for an improved system of supports for people who use drugs, including harm reduction. Special effort went into designing infographics and charts to represent complex statistical information to the average reader. Distributed in both English and French.

MONOLITHFor my Emily Carr thesis project I created “Monolith,” a publication for the curious individual focusing on topics around consciousness, self-awareness and contemporary science. Aside from focusing on the editorial design, I did custom illustrations for the issue’s contributors (with articles by Carl Jung, Stanley Kubrick and Tool’s Maynard James Keenan, among others) as well as designing a custom typeface for the wordmark. “Monolith” won the Applied Arts 2012 Student Awards in the category of Single Editorial Design.
iracambiBack in 2012, as a fresh Emily Carr grad, I went to the Atlantic Rainforest in Brazil to volunteer for a month at Iracambi, a local NGO dedicated to reforestation and sustainability education. During my stay I took it upon myself to do a brand refresh, a Wordpress website and various marketing collateral. In more ways than one, this was the start of my love for working with impact organizations (not to mention solo traveling).
