Studio Toque

In February 2014, I co-founded a freelance studio called Studio Toque with Wyatt Clough and Roger Galvez. I created the identity which is in use on hand-stamped business cards and the website which I am also in the process of coding (aside from the landing page).

What is Incentive Travel?

Moniker Partners were looking for a short animated video that they would use to pitch to potential clients. The video had to explain what Incentive Travel is, and show the company's interest in creating a personalized adventure. I created all of the illustrations in the video and worked alongside Wyatt Clough for the storyboarding and animation aspects of the video.

Simon Frank – Double Image

For Simon Frank’s upcoming release Double Image, I played with distorted photography. The photo on the front is an blurred “double image,” and the photo on the back side is an iPhone panorama of Simon taken in the incorrect direction.

Varsity Features

In terms of their design, the sections of The Varsity are template-based, and stay fairly consistent between issues. The exception to this rule is for the centrefold, where design is specific to the feature each week. Here are some excerpts of my favourite work from the year.

Glenn Gould animation

The Varsity was invited to Chily Gonazales's tribute to Glenn Gould at the university's Convocation Hall for the 80th anniversary of Gould's birth. Gonzales re-interpereted ‛Happy Birthday’ in memory of Gould's style. This project was my first foray into animation, putting masks over an illustration I made of the Glenn Gould statue.

Maybe it ruins the fun of watching the video, but the full illustration is to the right.

Backstory: Campus Mailroom

This is my favourite video that The Varsity's video team that I was a part of released in 2012-2013. Leslie and the mailroom team were really welcoming and enthusiastic about us filming what a day is like in their shoes. Leslie sent us an email afterward saying that the crew appreciated that the story was as much about the people as it was about the task they perform for the university, which is the goal of all of the Backstory features.
