I worked closely with Tony Dagnone, the former CEO of London Health Sciences Centre, on his presentation for the 2016 CHES Conference. Tony wanted to see some creative “whiteboard” illustrations to bring some visual interest to his narrative. For these animations, I used a combination of stock drawings and my own illustrations.
Most of the time, whiteboard animated videos include a recorded voice-over narration. For Tony’s presentation, I had to time the animations to his live narrative and split the animations to insert into Power Point. This way, an animation would finish before Tony would finish his taking point and remain on the final frame of the video, and he could finish talking before proceeding to the next slide / animation. We also worked collaboratively on streamlining his narrative text.
For some of the slides, a simple photograph sufficed. For others, we needed charts and graphs. Between the several types of media, Tony’s presentation had a great variety and dynamic.
The presentation was very well received, and Tony was complimented on the visual interest of his presentation.
This video is an excerpt of some of the “whiteboard” animations I completed, with my own reading of Tony’s narration.
I did a quick business card design for a music production client of mine who needed them for an upcoming show. I traced his hand drawn logo in Adobe Illustrator, and used existing artwork provided by the client.
While at the Facilities Management department at London Health Sciences Centre, I was responsible for developing the graphical content for the touchscreen wayfinding features, including maps, buttons, and backgrounds, working primarily with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
Special care to be taken with planning and exporting the map graphics so that future edits to the maps did not interfere with the wayfinding data points. I also took and edited the photographs for the homepage backgrounds, specifically for each kiosk in a different area of the hospital, following the existing wayfinding colour scheme.

I developed marketing copy targeting private surgeons in Southwestern Ontario for a turnkey service. I also provided the acquisition of stock photography, and layout services for a 12-page brochure.
In addition, I created a business card and website with the same visual scheme.
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.
