The Facilities Management department at London Health Sciences Centre needed to improve its public profile at the hospital, and one strategy was to produce a Year in Review report to deliver key messages and showcase good work.
I wrote the content, took many of the photos, and designed the document for the 16-page report. Content included:
- letter from the Vice-President
- the Facilities Management team
- Featured Projects
- Infrastructure Improvements
- Visions for the Future
For a visit to the windy city, I enjoyed shooting the remarkable architecture in the city. Some of the shots were from a guided riverboat tour, and some of them make use of HDR (high dynamic range) photography. For some of these shots, I tried to showcase the contrasts between the colours and textures of the buildings.
For a two-week roadtrip, we ventured east from Toronto, stopping off for a cruise through the Thousand Islands before crossing the border and heading for New York City. On the return trip, we spent a few days in the Adirondack Mountains at Wellnesste Lodge. The quaint, peaceful resort was a welcome respite following several days of non-stop romping around NYC in 35-plus degree heat.
As Marketing Designer at Queen’s Quay Architects, I took on photographing completed building projects for marketing purposes. This often involved finding the right time of day to shoot, even if it was just before dawn.
I created content and design of a visual strategy for a presentation to Centre Hopitalier Princesse Grace in Monaco. Advanced use of Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign resulted in a slick, sophisticated A3 size booklet and a 4’ x 3’ presentation panel.
Adobe Acrobat was used as a means to easily communicate with the client during the design process.
I designed a slick, flash-based website for this architectural firm that reflected their clean, minimalist design sensibility. I used their logo as a take-off for an animated, folding menu. Additional pages included showcases of their projects.
