the yoga of design

Realize your professional and entrepreneurial potential through conscious communication and elegant design.

 

For over a decade, I worked in the Toronto design and advertising industry, creating award-winning work for clients like the Art Gallery of Ontario, Museum of Jewish Heritage (NYC), Chronicle Books, Nienkämper, and many more. My work has been featured in many annuals and publications and is included in the AIGA permanent collection. Now I work with individuals, small businesses and non-profits to bring their creative vision to life and realize their personal and professional goals.

As I like to say, “now I use my powers for good”.

    the creative process

    Yoga is a way of uncovering the truth through inquiry and observation. In a collaborative process of discovery, we’ll work together to develop an authentic expression of your core business values, crafting an identity that clearly communicates who you are and what you offer.

    Please have a look at some work samples below and if you think I can help with your business, use the form below and let me know what you need. I’ll be in touch as soon as I can.

    Video, Photography & Music Production

    Tell your story through video and photography. I have a complete mobile photography and video rig that I can bring to your home, business, yoga studio or into the great outdoors. I can then edit your video, create a custom soundtrack and get it online. You can view some examples of videos I’ve created for myself below.

    Squarespace is a great platform for building attractive, responsive websites (like this one!) but for the average layperson with no web design experience, creating one for themselves can be overwhelming and time-consuming. I can help you get your site up and running in very little time and can create the site from scratch, or fine-tune the site you've started to build. Even if you just need assistance connecting your social media or utilizing your custom domain name, give me a call. I can help.


    thanks for looking!
