This report was a privilege to work on with such a great resource of amazing photography from Games time. It’s a beautiful, colourful, 9.5 x 7.5 inch book peppered with full page photos which are paired with memorable quotes from the event.

Melissa MacKinnon and Andrea Young did an excellent job pulling together the content. Photos were taken by the volunteer team which was lead by the incredible photographers at Communications Nova Scotia. Copy editing for this project was handled by my old friend Tara Lee Witchen, who I was lucky to work with on quite a few projects for the Games.

See the cover and a few sample interior spreads, below.

My friend Josh and his partner Jedd bought themselves a fish and chips truck this summer. Everyone’s childhood dream, I know! In exchange for some good eating, I designed a logo & sign for them. Look for Josh & Jedd’s fish & chips on Argyle Street on top of Parade Square in downtown Halifax this summer!

Another fun feature is that each page view loads a random highlight colour. So everytime you look at a page, there’s a new colour for the header and links. This was a solution we came up with for two reasons: Because it works conceptually with the broad range of artist members, and also we couldn’t settle on a specific colour choice.

This design featured silhouettes of dancers and fans which mixed with real shadows during the shows to enhance the fun. I was tasked with design of the surrounding banners.
