In 2012, I co-founded the Garrison Creek Bat Co. GCBC focusses on crossing the worlds of function and design, while celebrating the history of baseball in Toronto. I essentially act as the creative director at GCBC, as well as lead designer and event and promotions coordinator. One of GCBC's main goals is to collaborate with different artists and craftspeople - these collaborations are showcased in our exhibitions.
GCBC has enjoyed success thus far, with 3 major shows, an ongoing partnership with the Toronto Blue Jays Jays Care Foundation, and features in the Toronto Star, Toronto Life magazine, Sharp: The Magazine for Men, Now magazine, The Grid and BlogTO.
Stemming from an interest in typography and signage, my mapping series has been an ever-expanding project since 2007. I source data for each map by actually going to the area. Once there, video and notes are taken, which is later parsed through in preparation for design. Each word is individually typed and arranged, and then screenprinted by me -prints can be purchased here.
Though my maps primarily focus on neighbourhoods in Toronto, I have started to expand to other cities, and even other provinces.
