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.

Pickle Me This

The online home of the amazing Kerry Clare, writer, editor and would-be pickler. This is her place on the web where she writes, reviews  and obsesses over books.

Pickle Me This was the name of her pickling business but is put to better use here. The site has gone through several of revisions and will be altered to be mobile friendly in the future.

Maria Meindl

Having worked with Maria on multiple projects, I was happy to work with her again on her personal website. She provided a really striking lead image that creates a sense of unease. The blue of the header and serifs of the font were chosen to provide a contrast to the lead image and she was very happy with the result.

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.
