The RIDER GREATS Pin Collection.

This was a project that I was enlisted to design for the Leader-Post/Star-Phoenix that was given out as a "premium" to new subscribers, or available for purchase over the counter. It was also sold at the Rider Store, and was available as a complete mounted set, box-framed. I designed EVERYTHING from the actual pins, to the album they were mounted in, and ALL contingent advertising and point-of-sale displays. BIG job...popular item, though!

Achapani logo design and marketing campaign.

This project was undertaken at the behest of an associate of mine (Adele Lohmann, who ran Ad Ease Market Managing) for a brewing company in Maine who were looking to expand their product line to include bottled water. After brainstorming a name, I came up with a logo and designed a label for the bottle along with artwork for their product launch...it has apparently been a hit for them - I was told they won a business award for best new product when it was first introduced!

Lobby Show Card for Fundraising Dinner.

This was done up "on the fly" for COWTOWN to place alongside a display of prizes being offered at a Ducks Unlimited fundraiser. Yet another depiction of a very well-traveled and larger-than-life Cow!...

New Logo/Signage for Established Business.


I was asked to re-work the logo for "Lasting Impressions" in Moose Jaw a while back, and told to experiment with three specific colours, and also to incorporate a wheat stalk. They chose the burgundy version, obviously - it's used on signage, advertising and merchandising...

Recent design work.

The Chocolate Moose has recently expanded their offerings to include Cotton Candy - I was asked to design a plastic tub for the new product...this is the result! Designed by myself, and manufactured by Jokey Plastics in Ontario...

Some Designwork for the "Moose!"


I've done a lot of branding/product point-of-purchase, display advertising, etc for a number of clients...one fairly visible client is the Chocolate Moose in Moose Jaw. I designed their logo and most of the accompanying packaging that they use to market their product all across Canada...here are a few examples!...
