I created brands for a variety of companies, sometimes starting with the 'look and feel' and leading to the 'soft branding', other times working with the client to align their brand internally, then establish printed and online material. For many years, my stock-in-trade was telephone answering services and their associations - both in Canada and the United States.

Branding Breakthrough was a web and print branding project I took on with my web guy. We started with no collateral and ended up with a comprehensive package that the principal could then hit the streets with, attract clients and follow up with them in a professional - and appropriate - manner.

When time allowed, pro bono work was my way of reaching out to the community. As an offshoot of this I started 100 Men Who Give a Damn Waterloo Region. This has been going for 5 years now, and we are just short of $250,000 in monies collected.

My dream job would be opening for the Allman Brothers - and since I lack musical skills and the fact that the Allmans are no more, this isn't to be. Short of that, designing for musicians is something I LOVE to do. It is a challenge to reflect the personality of the musician in addition reflecting the emotion of the music in their brand and design.

Starting in the Norwich Union days, AIG and then BMO were an ongoing client both for design and for branding. Much of the work done for them was adapting designs based on changing brand guidelines. Some branding was done when product lines were extended and new brands created. Part of the ongoing contract was updating their PowerPoint presentations for internal sales.
