WRITE YOUR VISION

To blur the lines between 2D & 3D and create a holistic experience for our clients brands.

WHAT STEPS DID IT TAKE TO GET YOU WHERE YOU ARE NOW?

I got my degree for Industrial Design at Emily Carr University of Art & Design. It was during that program I noticed my love for graphic and web design. After graduation, I landed a job at 4Cats Art Studio as a Junior Designer. The environment there was fast-paced, I came to understand the world of Marketing and E-Commerce. However, discovered that the corporate lifestyle wasn’t for me. So I packed my bags, moved to Saskatoon, (currently building a home with my partner inside a city bus) and hustled my way to creating my own design consultancy.

HOW DO YOU STAND OUT IN YOUR FIELD?

Persistence and the need to learn something new. Technology plays a huge role in the design industry and is ever changing. If you’re unaware of how it is evolving, you can’t expect to acquire the tools or the skills you need to grow alongside it.

WHY DO YOU DO WHAT YOU DO, HOW DOES THIS HELP YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?

I develop designs that make my clients stand out of the scroll, through websites, graphics, and marketing campaigns.

WHAT TYPES OF COLLABORATIONS ARE YOU INTERESTED IN?

Really excited to do more Art Direction and experimental photography.

WHAT IS YOUR NUMBER ONE WAY TO GET INSPIRED?

I go to Siteinspire.com or Pinterest

WHAT WOULD YOU TELL YOURSELF AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR CAREER TO EASE ANXIETY?

In the words of Sofia Amoroso, “Don’t compare your hustle to their highlight reel”. Comparing can hinder growth and your time can be invested in improving your skills. Be patient, don’t second guess, and just put your work out there!

WHAT IS A FAVOURITE PROJECT YOU ARE WORKING ON RIGHT NOW?

Working on several amazing projects right now... You gotta wait and see ;)
