Event design can include any number of pieces depending
on the intricacies of your event. Advertising, often in the form
of a poster, is one of the most common. Other items may include invitations, menus, program guides, websites, displays, or signage.
The Royal Rave poster was inspired by its location — an ice castle, built each year by the Ice King, in winter wonderland Yellowknife! The poster for theatre production One Flea Spare developed through the imagery and the themes of sexuality, class, and power inversion found in the play, which takes place in plagued London in 1665.
The poster design for artist Richard Boulet was influenced by his work exploring schizophrenia. Using the artist's sketches, I tried to create the sense of isolation and disorganized thinking that a schizophrenic feels. The Folk on the Rocks poster is a concept I delivered while at Kellett Communications using the event's theme of fusing sound and culture. The blending colours represent fusion, and the water is a nod to the event's location beside a lake.
Event design for the annual Midnight Sun Triathlon held in Yellowknife. Pieces included: event poster, registration form, advertising, route maps, and shirt design.
The inspiration for the 2016 Royal Rave poster was Yellowknife's awesome nothern lights. The flu season had arrived with a new initiative in place, this poster was designed to create awarness and send people to a site where they could pre-register for their flu shot.
The client wanted a graphic for a trade show display that would highlight their popular travel destinations. Illustrations were made of the icons for each location and positioned on the globe linked by planes travelling to and fro. Created for Kellett Communications.
