A creative workout

Personal Fun Project | 2019

I used to sketch pandas for fun and when I saw an animation of Totoro done by CL Terry, I immediately thought of animating the character in Vancouver working out in the fall.

I digitized my sketch in Illustrator and then animated it using After Effects.

Multi-channel campaign

Creative Director | 2015

As the Creative Assistant Director at Kimbo DesignI designed and managed all aspects of a multichannel campaign for WorkBC . Together with the Government of British Columbia, my team and I created: digital ads, skytrain wraps, transit ads, print materials and social media ads for this campaign.

Initial Branding | 2019

Montessori Daycare wanted a new logo and business cards. But first, I needed to understand what their purpose, vision, mission, values and beliefs where. To do that, I interviewed the owner and employees so that I could discover what makes them unique and accurately represent who they are.

A Fresh Start

Graphic Design | 2015

As the Assistant Creative Director at Kimbo Design, I designed a vending machine wrap that targets thirsty customers who want fresh-squeezed orange juice to go. The machine was the first of is kind in Vancouver. 

The design features an orange peel with a see-thru window, which allows customer to see the inner workings of the juicer. The concept reflects the freshness of a real orangeincluding the sticker they usually come with in supermarkets. We designed the logo as a cubed shaped orange to illustrate the shape and product of the the vending machine.

Gif Animation

Gif Animation | 2018

A new client had asked me to animate the ferris wheel from this photo. I carefully selected and extracted the wheel in photoshop, re-painted the sky to be seamless, created the layers of the people, the palm trees, the fog and the sky and finally took out one cart, duplicate it and seemlessly animated it using after effects.
