The Fall – Opening Credits

This is an animation that I created for the opening credits of the movie The Fall using the program After Effects. I used screen grabs from the movie to incorporate the actual characters and key elements, and created a vibrant, illustrated background to support the colourful, imaginative story told throughout the movie. I also set the animation to custom music that I created by sourcing and downloading various instrumental songs and layering/cutting them together in garage band.


GO! Promotional Video

This is a promotional video generated for GO! [Growing Opportunities International]. The logo and images were supplied by the client, along with the song choice, which I then cut down in garage band. The images, layered with a looped video clip of old film, are set to transition with the music. I used adjustment layers to create a sepia tone effect and add a peripheral blur to enhance the projected look. The type is set to animate in smoothly and fade out. I also layered the cut song with projector SFX and adjusted the audio levels throughout the video to reinforce the idea of an old fashioned movie.


This is an invitation for a masquerade ball that doubles as a kit to create the mask you will wear to the event. The front of the card is perforated in the shape of a mask and is printed with a different design on each side, adding to the variety of the final masks. The recipient will ‘punch out’ the mask and use the decorative items included in the kit to create their very own mask.

The box comes wrapped with a satin ribbon and opens to reveal the invitation. Beneath the invitation, inside the sealed tissue paper, is an envelope containing feathers, and a set of instructions. A small bottle of glue, spools of ribbon, and small bottles of gems and sparkles are also included in the kit. Both elastic string and a small dowel are included, so the mask can be worn either way. All of the items have been wrapped with customized labels to match the theme of the ball.

Shown above are three views of the invitation. Note: the images are not shown to size in relation to each other.

Book Jacket

For this assignment I was provided with the publisher’s logo, trim size, copy, and a variety of images. I selected one of the images and used it to create a clipping mask of an eagle feather. The same shape was then repeated and ghosted on other parts of the cover to add interest and unify the design. Subtle textures and muted tones combine with serif and script typefaces to give the design the feeling of a long lost journal. Shown above is the flat design with crop and fold marks included.

Annual Report

This is an annual report I did for Arbor Forestry. For this assignment I laid out all of the elements in the report, including charts, graphs, images, and body copy. I created a strong hierarchy that would make reading the report easier and more enjoyable. The page numbers in the bottom corners  are grouped with blocks of colour so the different sections of the report can be seen without opening it. Shown above is the cover and two interior spreads.

Cocoa Camino

This is a promotional brochure for Cocoa Camino. Inside the folder is a booklet containing information about the company, as well as a removable business card. I took several of the photographs myself, including the one on the cover of the folder, and the photo on the cover of the booklet. Shown above is the front of the folder, partially open, as well as three interior views. Note: The color is slightly off in these photos and needs to be reshot, the folder is more of a purple color.

Wasabi Sabi Menu

This is a menu design for Wasabi Sabi. It would be printed on a textured stock to provide a matte finish that would minimize fingerprints and glare. The menu can be bound with a rubberband and/or thin strip of bamboo, making it easy to remove or reprint pages as needed. Shown above is the cover and a few interior pages.
