What’s in season?

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

Ever wonder what foods are in season? We’ve worked together with the BC Dairy Foundation to create a guide to help you figure it all out. It also contained recipes and a contest to win a Kitchen Aid Mixer. The brochure was inserted in newspapers across the Lower Mainland.

If you didn’t get to pick up one of these in season guides, be sure to check it out online at or download a copy here.

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

If you haven’t heard already, NBC has decided to get rid of the classic peacock icon that it’s had for years.

What do you think? Good or bad move?

We’ve seen the little guy transform over the years from illustrations to animation, here’s a few samples:



Pantone 2011 Colour of the Year

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

Pantone annouced the colour of the year this morning. With much anticipation, every designer was trying to guess what it would be, on facebook and twitter. While I wasn’t too surprised with the choice, I was thinking it would be more of a rich red instead of being on the pink side of things. For now I honestly can’t stand the colour, but maybe it’ll start to grow on me as the year moves along.

Design Trend: The Modern Banner

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

I’ve come across a recent design trend. It’s a very clean, simple, modern banner graphic. There’s a beautiful shop in Gastown using this in their logo. (Old Faithful Shop)

Bowling Design: Über nerdy?

Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

Bowling score screens, boring design right? Well someone has to do it even though it isn’t really that glamourous, it’s one hell of a challenge.

I couldn’t help but realize just how functional and practical it all is, and just how many variations are out there!

It’s always challenging designing something that is functional for the general public.

Check out this large collection of bowling score screens i’ve discovered.

Carded! Vancouver Art Show

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

On February 27th I checked out a sweet art show on Granville street. You walk in, purchase a $5 pack of mystery cards created by various artists, then you open them up and start trading with people in the gallery. It’s the most socially fun art show i’ve ever been too. I’m totally looking forward to checking out their other event Hot One Inch Action.

If you want to submit art or just check it out sometime, go here:

$15 bucks later and some awesome trading, this is what I settled with:

One Cool Poster!

Monday, July 27th, 2009

It was 1977 when I first saw this movie poster and even at the young age of eight I knew that it was going to be the greatest movie ever. And it was!


I lived the next several years being a full time Jedi. I was so stoked when my mom got me my blue Star Wars shirt with this same poster graphic on it. Yes, I thought that I was pretty cool on my first day of school, but new clothes for the first day of school is another story. The more Star Wars branded merchandise one had the cooler you were. Yes, I was only 8 and given the times it didn’t take much to blow our minds, but even still I think that this poster creative is just as cool today as it was 32 years ago.
