Summary

In 2011, I began as a graphic & web designer. I designed a lot for print and web, brand identities, and designed & developed static HTML or WordPress websites. In 2016, I transitioned into UX/UI Design and ventured into the world of full time freelance.

Work history

Freelance UX Designer for KIPP.org website redesign
I worked with Briteweb in Vancouver and New York, to redesign the charter school website, KIPP.org. I was hired by Briteweb on a contract for the project, and my role was to design the wireframes & an interactive prototype for the entire website overhaul.
Brand Identity, UI & Visual Design for Metabolik Tech
I worked with Evok Innovations, a cleantech fund, on Metabolik. I designed and presented a brand identity, printed marketing materials, wireframes, an InVision prototype, and UI design for the website. The website for Metabolik was developed in WordPress.
Talent Collective
Brand Identity for Talent Collective
Talent Collective hired me to give them a fresh brand identity, that reflected their style and attracted their audience more than their previous brand. I designed a hand-lettered logo, and put together a brand package of fonts and colours.
Brand Identity and UI Design for Up Conference
Talent Collective put on Up Conference, a freelancer conference last year, and hired myself and a colleague to create a brand and website to promote it. I designed a hand-lettered logo, brand identity and UI design for a WordPress website.
Print design for Nature as a Classroom booklet
The David Suzuki Foundation hired me to design a booklet sent to teachers all across Canada. The aim was to get teachers and students excited about learning in nature, with a bright palette of blues and greens, modern type and full page imagery.
