It’s been nearly two months since my big move back across the country, and I really should have written. The first couple of weeks consisted of me doing everything I could to meet people and get into some top notch creative agencies in Toronto. I met some good people and managed to get an offer after being in Ontario for only three weeks.
I am happy to announce that I have been working with john st. (www.johnst.com) as a print producer for a month now and I am very excited to be learning a new method of print production. Advertising is so much different than being at a design agency, so I’m learning a whole new language and way of operating!
I look forward to the day when I can function flawlessly, refrain from asking 100 questions a day, and get back into my old groove of getting great things done while having a good time with my colleagues.
Stay tuned, as I’ll be posting more of my previous work and hopefully some things that I’m working on at john st. In the meantime, here is my new business card – which I got to produce, woo!

While working with Identica at Cossette, I was the account coordinator and producer for our MTS retail projects. For the retail posters, we didn’t have enough of a budget to work with a proper copywriter, so I held a copy brainstorm for the headlines. Below are the posters where my copy was chosen.

I wanted to make up a fun resume to bring along to interviews. I was inspired by colour and paper sample swatches. They are the ingredients to print projects, so I decided to make myself an ingredient for agencies. The project looked great, printed on a simple white card-stock, but the eyelet rivets I bought were just a little bit too small and they prevented smooth swiveling of the pages, so I opted to not bring them along to interviews. Here is how it turned out:
My creative resume that I made for the Toronto job market. Though it never made it's debut, I think it's fun.
