Stories from the Polycule is a 288-page paperback collection of essays, poems and comics exploring the experiences of different people living in polyamorous relationships. The cover presented the challenge of creating a complementary design for not just provided artwork but also custom lettering for the title. The overall design reflected the playful tone set by the cover illustration.

Lockdown Pitch Package
Before a movie can be made enough excitement needs to be drummed up to earn backers. This pitch package was designed to capture the feeling of the film before it was made, painting a clear enough picture that interested parties could be enticed into participating. Lockdown was an independent film about a school shooting. The promotional materials were designed to capture the dark forboding feeling that this tense film promised to portray.

As part of its overall marketing campaign, the ProClaim Newsletter acted as a platform for Crawford & Company (Canada) Inc. to showcase its expertise in the insurance claims adjusting industry. I created a clean, simple design that reflected the brand. Because photographs were often not available, I opted for simple custom illustrations which I created by adapting stock illustrations to our specific purposes.

Un-Crowd Mobile App
The un-crowd mobile app is a hypothetical solution for over-crowded transit. Existing transit apps fail to factor in over-crowding when estimating which route is the fastest. Just because the streetcar is coming doesn't mean you'll be able to board it. Un-crowd would factor in historic levels of use based on date and times, as well as special events happening in the area that might affect usage levels. Based on user research that showed over-crowding was a significant issue for riders, un-crowd creates easy to understand screens that let users know which routes to take to avoid crowds.
