With a background rooted in filmmaking, my passions span across all visual mediums. Below you will find examples of my design work, varying from graphic design, animation, and visual effects. My inspirations pull from my experiences on the west coast of Canada, exploring the unscathed wilderness, or exploring the urban landscape with a skateboard under foot. I aim to create work that is bright, expressive, positive and approachable.
Title Animation - 2019 Demo Reel
Animated Titles - "Waterproof"
Animated titles for my experimental skateboard video, "Water Proof." The titles were projected through a fish tank, then captured and super-imposed onto the video shots. Additional effects were added with the use of a projector and other subtle tricks. Watch the video here.
Animated Tinder Effect - "Too Much"
This animation was made with Adobe Photoshop and Premiere for the music video "Too Much" by Bridal Party. The Tinder UI was re-created in Photoshop, then animated in Premiere. The result was looped on a phone screen to give the full effect of swiping to the left. Watch the video here.
Animated Titles - "Plezzy Promo"
Graphics and animation created for a brand-promotion. The graphics were created in Adobe Illustrator, then projected through a fish-tank to give the ripple-effect.
All filming, editing, graphics and effects were done myself. The brand "Plezzy" is my own brand where I sell clothing and accessories, targeted to "pleasant-minded" outdoor-enthusiasts. Watch the promo here.
Video Intro Animation - "Agnes: The Movie"
Hand-painted animation for the intro of the snowboard film, "Agnes: The Movie." The illustrations were done with a mix of watercolours and acrylics on construction paper. The illustrations were imported, cut out and set into motion with Adobe After Effects. Watch it here.
Graphic Design Work - Plezzy
Plezzy is a pleasant-minded, approachable streetwear brand that I created as a side-project. I created all the designs myself, utilizing a combination of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. The designs are intended to be simple, bold, approachable and positive, all while embracing the culture of skateboarding and streetwear. The designs were applied to clothing myself, either through the use of screenprinting or embroidery. Visit the website here.
