On October 10th, 2013 OSC Cross launched their Fall/Winter 2013/2014 collection at The Atlantic Restaurant and Griffin where they hosted an intimate dinner with the co-authors of The Antarctic Book of Cooking and Cleaning in hopes of bringing a variety of different people together. Wendy Trusler, chef and co-author partnered with Atlantic chef Nathan Isberg to create a unique menu that fit the theme of our collection (Atlantic fishing). This was an event that I spearheaded with the OSC Cross team

The front of a postcard I designed with SQUAB Creative Studio for Fresh City Farms -a meal on wheels initiative in Toronto. This is one of a few projects where I was able to add in some free hand work and have type be the focus. The illustrations on the bottom, however, were previously done by Lauren Pirie, a Toronto-based artist.

With SQUAB Creative Studio we got an assignment to design the Facebook Event banner for a music event presented by Dino & Terry in Toronto. I had fun brainstorming for this one, each banner came out completely different. Can you guess which one the client chose?
