Skills Used

Project Goals

Northwood wanted a new website that really showcased their beautiful landscaping work. We agreed that something clean and simple was a must, making sure that their work is on display no matter what page you're looking at. Colours were based on their brand, and I also introduced some texture and a dark charcoal colour to compliment the brighter tones.

Les Grands Chais de France

Les Grands Chais de France is a winery in the heart of the Parc Naturel des Vosges du Nord in France, and has become the leading French wine and spirits trader.

They attended the Toronto Gourmet Food & Wine Show in 2011 and wanted a 10 second animation for their Grand Sud brand for the video they shot at the show.

The agency hired to shoot the video, Lopta Inc., contracted me for the animation and gave me carte blanche with the concept. They also provided me with photographs of the bottles, the logo, a promo video for reference, and two wine pouring shots from the wine show.

Skills Used

  • Animated in AfterEffects
  • Rebuilt Bottles as Vectors

Project Goals

I aimed for a concept that had some flashiness to it (inspired from the provided promo video) while still exuding the elegance that is usually associated with wine. I also gave myself two additional practical challenges: make the 2D bottles feel 3D, and have constant motion.

DiverseCity Music

DiverseCity Music is a dance music label and promotes the culture and lifestyle throughout the world.

DCM wanted a short animation for their website that displayed the brand's logo and the artists that it represents.

I was contacted by the agency Lopta Inc. to create the video for DCM. They provided me with the logo, photos of their artists, some photos of their club events, and a song to go along with the video.

Skills Used

  • Animated in AfterEffects

Project Goals

I was requested to create a flashy text treatment (similar to the text in Kanye West's All of the Lights) and to showcase the DCM artists and brand using the provided promo materials. I aimed for a "clubby" feel with a lot of flashing and movement.
