Throwing It Back: Morino Lodge Identity and Collateral Materials

This was a really fun design project for the Morino Ski Lodge in Japan. I was asked by old pal Craig Oldring (co-owner of the lodge) to design a logo that reflected the mountain environment in Hakuba (trees, powder, and soaring peaks).  As well, he and his partner Matt needed various other bits of collateral including business cards and apparel. Once the graphics were set, I sent the goods over to Kyle McIntosh (another longtime friend) at Popgun Media. Kyle put together a beautiful site for the lodge...and then the snow kept falling...and skiers and snowboarders kept coming. I'll get over there one day...I believe I have a standing reservation for the presidential suite!

In the tradition of great city destroying beasts like Godzilla and Mothra, my fertile brainbox gave birth to this grouchy character. He seems pretty choked... Maybe his bubble tea order was messed up? Or Maybe he is just misunderstood? Anyway...

Vancouver 125! @ Tees.ca

I recently had the good fortune to be asked to contribute a t-shirt design for an art show / tee show put on by Tees.ca in Gastown. The show was initiated to celebrate the 125th anniversary of Vancouver's incorporation as a city! It was super fun to be a part of! Many thanks to the folks at Tees.ca for putting on a great show, and printing some great shirts. Thanks also to the other artists who participated (awesome work people). If you feel the need to clothe yourself in an old-timey looking, short sleeved garment with a fancy picture of William Cornelius Van Horne on it (the CPR man responsible for making Vancouver the western terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway)...head on over to Tees.ca located at 227 Abbot Street in Gastown. Or...check em out at
