Working with Dorel had me in some rewarding situations, producing this edit with a great crew at SUGOI Performance Apparel, Cannondale bikes and the uber talented Matt Dennison was with out doubt one of those times. Lots of work but this edit was a hit with the sales team / blurring the lines between dealer and consumer facing assets – you know what I am talking about.

Still Alive and Creative

It has been awhile since visiting processhaus – never too late they say.
I have been busy and will try my best to get caught up.
For now – to show you I am alive and creative – a quick snap of my sketch book.

Something for the poet and the play write, something for the youth in all of us and of course that lover of design. 3 characters from my psyche.

Batman, Shakespeare, and icaribou.


Iphone Update – Art and Design at the Magazine Rack – One of my favorite Places

So I am out doing a little shopping – tis the season after all.
For me every shopping trip is an opportunity to stop and check out the Magazine rack and this trip was no different, even if it was dressed up like a Christmas mission – I managed a stocking stuffer out of it. Here is what I found that would make more interesting stocking stuffers, for the good and not so good on your list.
First, a cover shot of a model I recently worked with on a SUGOI shoot – way to go Brandi. I hope our pro deal helps you get some new running stuff – hint hint.
Second, not that I need another excuse to tell anyone how much I think James Jean is incredible but here it is in its lowbrow finest – I mean that (lowbrow)  in a good way.
Next – Another award for the Urban line – that is 4 awards that I know of – my head is swollen and I am not going to say anything about my name not being in the write up.
Fourth, no report would be complete without a missed opportunity – finishing number 2 in the art direction race for this rag was a good thing – everything happens for a reason.

Bowen Island Designer with an Ego or is she simply an Artist ?

If  you ever have a chance to see Marian Bantjies speak you must, and if you have a chance to see here work you should. Marian was a regular guest of the Communication program at Emily Carr and I took every opportunity possible to hear her speak. She played a major role in Canada’s GDC ( Graphic Design Association) and is continuing to change the landscape of Graphic communication. Ego – no doubt, justified – you decide.
