SBC Media

SBC Media is an independent Canadian publisher of action sport media and print magazines distributed nationwide. As an avid boarder, I was stoked for the opportunity to redesigned and relaunch all of their titles, which include; Snowboard Canada, SBC Skateboard, SBC Skier, SBC Surf, SBC Resort Guide, SBC Wakeboard, SBC Business, and SBC Women's Annual.


Highlights:

Collaboration with dialled-in editors and talented contributors from across the country specific to each title.

Manage that the overall design direction is on-trend for each title, all while delivering unique and visually appealing layouts for all editorial content.

Most covers incorporate into the design a spot printed clear gloss and/or die-cut effect that effectively enhanced their tactile appeal.

Coordinate and systemize the creative production of each issue from start-to-finish.

The Lost Highway

The Lost Highway is a documentary film that paints an intimate portrait of life along a remote yet colourful stretch of the Trans Canada Highway in eastern Ontario. I was commissioned by the filmmakers to create a logo and website to expand upon the theme of their documentary film.

Each exit explores various stories and personalities through text, slideshows, video, infographics and audio clips. The side navigation buttons and arrows allow the user to jump between exit or one can simply scroll vertically to move between exit.

Branding

Branding

A successful brand influences favourable performance. It serves two interrelated functions: impact awareness and understanding; and influence perceptions. If your target audience knows about you, they are more likely and willing to do business with you.

Great brands begin with great strategy and there is no cookie-cutter solutions to branding. When all elements of your business processes, culture and communications are aligned around a unified voice you can more effectively influence your reputation, increase your company’s reach, improve your brand’s power and ultimately improve financial performance.

I can provide analysis, solutions and brand marketing expertise to increase and enhance your brand perception throughout all your customer facing activities. Below are some key elements that I can provide as part of the branding process:

  • Brand strategy
  • Brand positioning
  • Identity design
  • Content development
  • Digital design
  • Print design
  • Packaging
  • Advertising

Identity

Identity

While a logo is often perceived as the most important part of a brand, it never exists in a vacuum. It is always seen within the context of other visual elements and in various environments and applications. Colour, typography, patterns, photography, illustrations — these visual cues are crucial to conveying a brand's values, attributes and personality to the world.

I specialize in developing visual programs to make your logo the cornerstone of a fully realized brand identity.

Identity guideline documents are recommended as they provide the distinctive qualities and representation of the brand identity as they are applied to a number of applications. They are useful for everyone who is directly involved in the development of marketing and communications activities and the brand. These may all be communications professionals: both internal and external.

Print

Blocks of words can be merely a maze of information – without form, direction, or impact. Design adds the focus that directs the reader’s eye and creates the emphasis that clarifies your message.
