2017 Design & Motion Reel
Some of the design/motion work that made the cut from 2016-17.
Bell iHeart Christmas TV Spot
Worked with Campfire Studio to produce this TV spot for the iHeart Christmas radio. It's the first TV spot that i've done for the Toronto market, so it's great to see my work on the tube this season.
Bell Halifax TV Spot, Hollywood Contest
A TV spot to promote Bell Halifax's C100 radio station. The swatches of the radio station lent themselves well to the video's tone of cash/gold and travel.
TD Bank Career Report Explainer, Design Reel
Animation reel cut from 5 explainer videos done for an internal explainer for TD. The videos were 3-5 minutes each and created within a month. Visual inspiration was a mixture of collages, infographics and old encyclopedias. The reel's song is "Waves" by Tourist.
Rogers National Media Explainer
This is a "director's cut" version to bring more excitement and pop to what is supposed to be an unveiling explainer video for Rogers. The original designs that were used for the animation can also be found here.
Rube Goldberg Editorial Piece
A web editorial piece done for a company's tactile production service. Each item in the Rube Goldberg illustration represents a city mentioned within the copy.
Ripley's Aquarium, World Oceans Day
Happy to have teamed up with Ripley’s Aquarium to create this video for kids. How do we get people to empathize with what’s going on in the world when we only put ourselves first? Hopefully being “Humish” can spark some urgency and awareness with how we affect the world and the creatures that live within it.
We teamed up with Thought Café to create a series of videos to teach students about government basics and the elections. The colour palette and illustration styles were picked specifically for the adolescent demographic of elementary and high school students. Each topic had a unique theme that students would be able to relate to—such as building blocks, card games, apps and games—making the videos more captivating, engaging and digestible, increasing viewership by at least 170%.
Illustrations and designs done for three educational videos on Canada's revenues and expenses. "Understanding where money goes and how it’s spent is necessary to be financially responsible, but it’s not the most exciting topic to discuss. Campfire created a series of engaging and colourful videos, explaining the Canadian government's process to young Canadians. This gives them an opportunity to learn where the government gets funding, how it’s used, and encourage viewers to form their own opinions on how money is allocated."
Animated Wedding Invite
What an uniquely unusual wedding video request this was! Who knew people wanted animated wedding videos? We had the pleasure of animating the story of a newly wed couple—Justin & Mallory—leading up to their upcoming wedding. There was a lot of love and attention that went into the architectural detail—since the couple spent a lot of their time travelling the world—while still trying to maintain flat and simplistic imagery.
Campfire Studio Website Banners
Looping banners made to live on each page of a website.
We were brought on board to develop the visual look and feel for Virgin Mobile’s Re*Gen program. Utilizing the script and palette provided, we were able to achieve dynamism and storytelling with the use of body language, bold graphical lines, and energetic camera moves.
Jamie Oliver’s TED Talk, “Teach Every Child About Food”, inspired us to create a video that would be just as captivating as his words. Our goal of pairing Jamie’s speech with clever and playful visual representations, was brought to life through a mixture of cel animation, live action prop work, and tactile design.
We took the opportunity to try something we’ve always wanted to do with our Christmas video this year. Inspired by the combination of props and animation—such as “Fear of Flying” & “Vampires and Buildings”—we decided to dive in and immerse ourselves with the ‘tactile’ movement that we were always wowed by.
An "inside" look at the unique characteristics of the Umbra "Rinse" strainer...from the perspective of food you're about to eat.
Buttr Explainer Video
We had a blast coming up with the branding, identity and explainer video for BUTTR. We were able to create an explainer video centered around their “Buttr makes it better” metaphor, which inspired us to use food and healthier ingredients to describe the company. Watch how BUTTR takes an otherwise bland and boring project, and livens it up with vibrancy, design and fun!
Planet in Focus Bumper
