Tim Hortons: Adopt a Donut

, ,

This was an idea that hit me one morning when I noticed the design team descend on a dozen donuts. All but one was taken up in the first rush. This led me to feel a strange sort of empathy for the unchosen pastry. If I could give voice to the donut’s insecurities and low self-esteem, I figured I could help us all to be better-informed and more sensitive about how we choose our donuts.

And then I thought this would make for an excellent campaign to boost sales for coffee and donuts. So I wrote and designed this up.

Yes, the donut had a name… and it was “Delicious”.

My Coffee Mug

, ,

I like my coffee, especially when I’m in a meeting. Custom speech bubbles allow me to be part of the conversation even while I’m drinking my hot cuppa. It’s less messy that way.

I made this during a team-building ceramic painting event at one of my previous jobs. My handwriting is usually less shaky than this ;^)

Calgary Transit Dragonboat Banner Art


This dragon art was created for the Calgary Transit Dragonboat rowing team.

The colourful waves were adapted from the new CT brand, which worked well to make the dragon appear to be swimming. The circular inset detail showcases the scale texture that was incorporated into the final art.

Finished size was 4m x 1 m.

Christian Rock CD : St. Albert the Great Parish

The title “Building on Faith” was already in place when I was invited to design the artwork and packaging for this compilation CD. The base idea behind this concept was the question, “Who is the architect of life?”

The blueprint of a tree became the metaphor for a growing community of faith. Inside artwork of the tree in full bloom was provided by an artist in the parish.
