Found Type - Recycle
This type was created with the intent of using the recycled material or material that can be recycled to create the word 'Recycle' itself. Using a mass amount of Lemon juice bottles, cardboard, plastic bags, and used transfer paper for labels, I was able to construct the word. To take the picture, I had used 3 construction lamps for lighting, and to get at the right height, I laid on top of a wooden skid, as a forklift raised it into the air about 30 ft.
This inforgraphic graphed my internet's bandwidth consumption, aswell as gave some information on bandwidth, how it is measured and how it is different depending on the service provider and country.

Audio: Scarlet by Electricwest
This is an academy leader that I had worked on to put before my short videos that I had filmed. I had attempted to recreate a film strip on a reel, without actually using a film strip or a reel. I had cut out stencils with numbers on each one, hung each one from a roof, and used a small flashlight and rapidly moved it up and down while filming with a Canon T2i in the other hand.
Type Love Booklet
This is a booklet made to showcase the anatomy of type and type setting. This booklet also showed some previous project that I had also done, and what I had learned from each.
These business cards were printed by Moo.com on their Luxe cards. I think that business cards should be more than just promoting the said, it should create a connection with the holder that makes them remember. Remember the card, remember the person. My logo helps with this connection, as I think it is a minimalistic, and memorable representation of who I am.

Toronto Subway Map Concept
A digital map used on phones to help the traveller, who has never been or is usually confused when using the subway system in Toronto. This app would make use of bluetooth beacons placed throughout the tunnels in order to give a precise location. The user would enter their location and their destination, and the app would tell them exactly where to go. What makes this app unique is that it also helps them navigate through a subway station to make sure they're on the right side of the track. It's communication with bluetooth beacons solves the problem of not having cell service or wi-fi in the tunnels.
