Just finished a logo for a client and had so much fun finding a USB stick for all the files. Check out this Quicksilver SkateDrive. Perfect for my client who runs a youth program.

A big client of mine is Kane's Harley-Davidson®. I am responsible for their advertising, graphics, and promotion.
Most days I really enjoy my job, but then there are days like this week when I get the opportunity to be part of something I otherwise might not be. Which is really awesome.
This week we are off to Sturgis North Bike Rally in Vernon. I'm really looking forward to taking some photos, hanging with the Kane's girls, and learning more about this fascinating world of Motorcycles.
Stay tuned for pics!

Do you agree?
I was doing some reading this afternoon in Design Edge Magazine and the title of the article I came across was PRINT STILL HANGING TOUGH. They surveyed 333 designers in Canada and the results were surprising. In a word of digital media, social media, interactive media...and so on, its hard to believe print has a place anymore.
Survey results stated that the majority of designers devote 81-90% of their work to print!
If I were surveyed I would fall into this category as well.
So is print dead or is there a blossoming movement towards using creative methods with paper?
Design for though..

I love taking a little time to play around with design, no client, no deadline, just a little fun.
I really love shoes (that's an understatement) and I really love using my design programs to draw shoes, the possibilities are endless!
Design inspired by the famous quote: “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.”

A client had asked me to design some wall art for their offices using a variety of words and phrases personal to them. Because this design involved a lot of typography I thought I would create a quick video of the design process.
I love Typography.
Typography is an art - its a way that designers arrange type utilizing white space, shapes, points, line length etc.
Hope you enjoy!
