"Post Nation" is a concept for a series of stamps intended for Canada Post. It is meant to celebrate Canada’s position as a country with no distinct national identity; that whether it is our architecture, natural landscapes, religion, ethnicity, or culture, Canada is too varied to have an archetype. There is no core identity or mainstream. Rather, a shared understanding and value of diversity. The stamps focus on four types of diversity - people, nature, landscapes and beliefs. The name Post Nation, a play on the word "post", presents Canada as a country that no longer strives for an idealized national identity, but instead prides itself on its lack thereof.
Fifty Shades of Gravy, 2016
Fifty Shades of Gravy is a small book or "zine" that I wrote, designed and hand-bound. The brief for this project was to take two different texts and juxtapose them using purposeful graphic design and layout techniques in order to create a cohesive book. This book uses passages from E. L. James' best selling romance novel Fifty Shades of Grey and compares them side-by-side with passages from a Martha Stewart turkey recipe.
Coated in Grime: A 40th Anniversary Retreospective of le Stade Olympique is a bilingual, illustrated semi-satirical chronicle of the absurd and unfortunate history of our most polarizing Montreal landmark: the Olympic Stadium. The aesthetic approach of justified text, and bilingual pages was meant to reference an informational brochure that would have been distributed during the olympics. At the same time, it is deliberately pell-mell, meant to poke fun at the shabbiness of the Olympic Stadium. Coated in Grime was a finalist for Best Zine at the 2016 Expozine Awards and was sold at various independent bookstores around Montreal, including Drawn & Quartlery, la Flèche Rouge and Librarie le Port de Tête.
