Writers Adventure Camp

At Writers Adventure Camp writers spend their mornings learning from mentors and their afternoons relaxing by the dock or enjoying the great outdoors. The logo is a crossed oar and pen showing the intersection of writing and camp activities and the blue ink is to represent the lake.

This site was built without a CMS as minimizing maintenance was an important requirement.

Catherine Bush

This is the website of author Catherine Bush and has been recently  updated for her new novel Elemental. The site uses WordPress and has many different page templates and  sidebars that show a series of quotations from other authors that are important to Catherine.

For this project I have provided ongoing support, training and a WordPress training manual.

Denise Cruz

This site showcases the academic projects of Denise Cruz, whose work relates to fashion, gender and sexuality. Initially the site was to be inspired by the show Mad Men, however the photos that Denise wanted to use were much more glamorous than Madison Avenue. The site became about showcasing these archival fashion photos and the result is a visually striking website that stands out in academia.

Projects and Interests

I am really interested in how motion-graphics can be used to convey messages effectively, especially now that short-form video and YouTube have become such important ways to communicate. I started using After Effects part way through a #26letters challenge on instagram and I am really excited to create more motion-graphics.

I understand that Graphic Designers need to keep up with industry trends and requirements. As part of a recent website re-design I did, I had to meet the requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. I learned how visually-impaired people use the internet and how important accessibility is for everyone.
