9 Clapperton St in downtown Barrie is the future home of Mosquito Emporium. There you will find vintage furniture, housewares, and all round cool stuff. This ain't your grandma's antique shop!
The owner, Andy Thompson, is a talented craftsperson who specializes in vintage furniture restoration but also does kitchen and bathroom installs. Combining his military service and his family connection with woodworking the design for this logo was inspired by the Disney designed airforce patch for the Canadian Mosquito airplane that was constructed out of wood and used during and after WWII.
Spending a year with like-minded people who are dedicated craftspersons, as a team we developed a logo to commemorate a year learning many skills including hand tools; chisels, dovetail and coping saw and hand planes to working with machinery; joiner, planer, band saw and drill press. From the curly shavings of the hand plane to the velvet-smooth finish of 320-grit sandpaper, this year was a journey through time and overcoming challenges by mistakes and solutions.
Fraser King, a local artist from Barrie Ontario, created the tree design; she can be reached by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Developed logo, and labels following the customers specific requirements this product is available in local health food stores, at the farmers market and directly from the bottling facility. Healthy and delicious, who doesn’t want a piece of the sun.

Apple and Acorn Woodworking was ultimately created out of a love and respect for nature and trees. Jake Stezinar, the artisan behind Apple and Acorn Woodworking, has a passion and creative vision for finely detailed and handcrafted woodworking.

Their products are a perfect accompaniment for customers to showcase their wines paired with gourmet cheeses and artisan breads. They’re not just boards; they’re a statement!
The purpose was to create a core brand for a a family-focused program at the Midland Cultural Centre. Family Scene will offer quality programs for young families that are affordable to all. We chose the word “scene” because this is something that is artistic AND encompasses many different forms of art, performing or visual (visual scene, scene in a movie, scene in a play, etc.).

The UAB Project celebrates a rare, multidisciplinary, creative practice that may become endangered through lack of knowledge and accessibility. Many fragile, invaluable artists’ books in public collections are rarely seen outside the vaults in which they reside. Few Canadians experience these precious books and the practices that create them. UAB will generously display this publicly owned treasure. Bilingual education programs, print and web publications will invite diverse audiences to share the little-known creative practice in accessible contexts with new ideas. Video interviews with artists and experts in library and studio settings will expand public awareness of artists’ books.
All regions of Canada and most media will be represented in final selections. UAB will explore the rich spectrum of this artistic practice, highlighting its significant contribution to contemporary visual art.
The images to the right are pulled from the UAB Project exhibit proposal sent to galleries across Canada.
While working as an intern at Thain Creative, with Thain's brilliant mind we came up with the card package concept for the team event. The previous one was a college pub night event.
Posters were created to commemorate special occasions i.e. Black History month, 'free food' campaigns among others.
During a main-floor shutdown the library required signage to re-direct patrons. Using the brand standards of the college, font and colours were used to create a look that supported these guidelines.
Another campaign included a series of 'ask me anything' posters that used humour to create a friendly outreach to library-reluctant college students.
To create awareness of various study spaces a promotion was launched to highlight quiet areas designated as study zones.
Various logos created, some for clients, some for free, some during an internship and some are just interesting concepts.
Proposal for Penticton, BC included various characters that were engaging for little eyes. Included are the marmot and the Stellar Jay, native to the area.
