The task was to design two posters promoting an upcoming Zelda Movie.

Poster #1: Cropping the photo tightly adds some intrigue. The title is placed on the first horizontal of the rule-of-thirds grid and the green is synonyms with Zelda.

Poster #2:
Playing with negative space—Zelda is imprinted on the D. Link's shield is shown in the background to emphasize that this is Zelda.

Harvey's Billboard

My task was to design a billboard promoting a new sandwich for Harvey's—just for fun! The concept is meant emphasize the crispy element by showing the sandwich is not too hard, but not too soft. The message is quick and viewable from a distance—perfect for a billboard. And the colours and type are inline with the current Harvey's brand.

First Post, First Blog

The weather outside is wonderful, the air is crisp and the sun radiant. So you may ask, why am I inside writing a blog on the couch, in two day old boxers? Because of design.

I am student at the prestigious—at least to me—George Brown College. Fascinated with design (and girls despite what some say) since 16, this is my passion: to draw, think, and communicate. And since this summer is slow and our economy is being shipped overseas, I have some free time.

This is where this dude called Mitch comes in. He just graduated from George Brown and is in the odd position of actually having three jobs offered to him (he must have performed favours for someone). But anyways, he's cool in a unorthodox way and were both furthering our talents here by exploring various projects.

Stay tuned!
