Honda Canada: Christmas Wish Toy Drive



While working at DS+P, my partner Megan Kras and I got the chance to brainstorm ways to promote the Ontario Honda Dealer Association's annual Christmas drive. The goal was to get people to come to the dealerships, bring new toys to donate, and also get a chance to win a brand new 2016 Civic. One of our concepts involved the notion that the toys can't make it to the dealerships on their own. It's a hard journey for a toy. They need your help. :) View it on Ads of the World or Strategy Magazine.

Psiphon: Free The Net

psiphon poster psiphon poster psiphon poster psiphon poster psiphon poster Here are some fun yarn posters I worked on along with the team at Rack & Pinion Creative, for Psiphon Inc. At first glance, I don't think you'd guess how long it takes to create the props + set up + shoot something like this!

In the posters, Psiphon - a VPN service & more - is represented by the needle and red thread. In the first poster, Psiphon provides a better and cleaner communication alternative shown as a tin can telephone. In the second poster, the world is becoming unthreaded and Psiphon is patching it up, reconnecting it to become whole again. In the last poster, Psiphon needles are seen picking the lock of a ball & chain that is preventing a user from sending a message. Also, a couple of behind the scenes pics. :)

Big Ideas

Over the weekend, my project partner Mat and I took some photos with a giant pencil prop I quickly created, to represent ideas & creativity and our love for projects. The pencil was so worth the hot glue burn.

I take the TTC almost every day. I've always loved the little Keep Arm In signs in the streetcars, and there's even an interesting article on Torontoist about them.

My first mission was to create a one-of-a-kind necklace (first 4 photos) by acquiring one of the actual plaques from the streetcars. I got lucky and got one through a friend who works at the TTC - although it has an upgraded font, it's still authentic. I can't wait to wear it at a local event.

My second mission was to create a some-of-a-kind necklace based on the sign for people to buy. It's much smaller and vintage style, made from metal. Currently, you can buy them from here or my website for $13.

Buy:

Necklace (Pendant + Chain) | $13 USD



Pendant Only | $8 USD
