I designed a few promotional event flyers for music shows in Toronto. Deadlines were very tight, and I provided files suitable for both printing and sharing on social media, including banners for the Facebook events.
In addition to co-creating, co-producing, and co-hosting the weekly program Song Talk Radio, I also designed the show’s logo and business card, and co-designed the website and monthly electronic newsletter.
Song Talk Radio is a very safe space for me, and at times, a great venue for me to express my creative side in clever ways. For this logo design, I used musical symbols in place of letters, and of course, the photo we used shows the camaraderie and humour of the team.
Use of Windows Content Manager, HTML, CSS, and Photoshop to manage content, design graphics for, and layout hundreds of webpages. Use of Intelligent Query Architect to include member-specific information from the associated database. Also trained other staff in the content system to manage their own content.
I was also responsible for setting up and managing ONPHA’s social media accounts, including Facebook, youTube, and Twitter.

During my time with ONPHA, I was responsible for delegate photography at the Association’s Annual Conference, as well as event photography at housing provider sites, and building photography when needed. The photos were used for future marketing of the events as well as education courses and general stock photos for the Quick Connections newsletter, Annual Report, and website.
At the annual conferences, photos taken were quickly edited and compiled together with sponsor and marketing slides for a looping slideshow during the banquet dinner. Delegates were always delighted at seeing their faces on the large screens mere hours after the photos were taken.
I worked with the signage company to design the trade show booth for the ONPHA annual conference. The design had to satisfy several criteria, including reflecting the association’s member-driven service and the educational resources we provided. Most of the photos used were shot by myself at various ONPHA and member events.
Use of Photoshop and InDesign to create quarter-size files to the manufacturer specifications.
For this client, I created a comprehensive marketing strategy including brochures, magazine advertisements, and a 20-foot tall banner to hang on the side of a local hospital.
I also provided writing, layout and graphic acquisition for a simple single-fold brochure targeted at family physicians and other medical specialists as an introduction to the investment opportunity.
