TVO Digital Learning

Funded by the Ministry of Education, TVO created interactive, online learning courses for all Ontario Students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 that aligns with the Ontario curriculum. 

I worked with a team of talented illustrators to create thousands of illustrations and several animations for both the Elementary and Secondary courses. These illustrations not only compliment the course material but enrich the content with beautiful art and lovable characters. 

The course contained characters of all races, genders, and abilities as well as different ages for the characters depending on the Course Grade.

A collection of illustrations I created for various courses. 

Art and curriculum work together to enrich the content. Interactive elements such as Brainstorms, Matching, Accordions, and Carousels keep the content interesting and engaging.

Animated Body Rigs were used for the Physical Education courses to visually show exercises and stretches.

Animated GIFs were created to bring Science illustrations to life!

Meet Daisy – a white-tailed deer who teaches children about the amazing things deers can do! Join Daisy as she runs, jumps, laughs, and hides! You’ll even meet some friends along the way.

My Deer Friend can be enjoyed as a stunning picture book, an animated video, and through Augmented Reality!

Check out the Promo Video below!

What started out as a gift for my niece on her 1st Birthday has turned into this final product.

I saw firsthand how much my niece enjoyed this illustrated book and I couldn’t resist bringing these lovable characters to life through animation!

To manage my orders, shipments, and deliveries I created a responsive ecommerce website using Shopify.

As a child, I would imagine the characters of my favourite books moving from page to page; they were alive, but only in my imagination. That changed when I discovered Augmented Reality. Finally, I could make these characters appear to move directly on the pages of this book — right before my eyes! With the help of AR, my childhood dream has now become a reality.

The David Dunlap Observatory Corporate Identity

DDO thumbnail

The David Dunlap Observatory

Corporate Identity Rebrand

The David Dunlap Observatory was opened in Richmond Hill, ON by Clarence Augustus Chant in 1935. It was originally owned by the Department of Astronomy at the University of Toronto for astronomical research and housed the second largest telescope of its time. The observatory was financed by Jessie Dunlap and named in honour of her late husband, David.

Light pollution and land development has ceased any scientific research and use for the observatory. The future of the Observatory aims to become a science centre for children and inspire the next generation of star gazers. With that in mind, the new identity aimed to evoke child-like curiosity.

DDO building

The phases of the moon inspired the new logo identity.

Turning from a crescent, to half, and finally a full moon, the letters D-D-O are revealed.

DDO logo

Combined with the logo is a pattern of constellations – interesting characters written in the stars. The pattern harkens back to a child’s imagination and encourages children to keep looking up.
