Mission

To work with businesses, organizations, groups and individuals who conduct their affairs out of a love for what they do, and where they are.

My approach

Collaboration. Some agencies and designers believe they know all about your business. That is wrong. Working together, interesting, engaging, practical and successful design will be born. My past experience in very small and very large organizations gives me valuable insight into what constitutes a good client/designer relationship, what works – and what doesn’t.

I support

  • Special Olympics Nova Scotia
  • MOSAIC Network, information services for older adults with dementia and behavioural issues
  • Churchill Academy
  • Two Planks and a Passion Theatre Company
  • South Shore Social Ventures Co-op (The Blockhouse School)
  • Hank Snow Home Town Museum
  • Laing House
  • AIDS Coalition of Nova Scotia

Special skills

  • Large advertising/PR agency experience gives valuable insights and knowledge uncommon (often lacking) in small design firms
  • Well versed in 3D design conception
  • Well endorsed copywriter
  • “Crack” production artist skills ensure projects arrive for production without issue
  • NSCAD teaching experience: summer credit program,  extended education for 33 consecutive terms. Guest lectured at SMU, Dalhousie and MSVU. Written curriculum for NSCC.
