“There are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.”
Graphic Design is something I turn to when I am looking for a different sort of problem solving. Graphic Design is something that feels more like a puzzle that needs to be sorted out and all the pieces put in the correct order. When I work on graphic design projects I think about what I can do to make the design as legible and straight forward as I can. This is especially true when it comes to logos, logos need to be very clear to see with no question to what is being seen.
“Art is the reflection of pure emotion and mind, the nature of sensation. An artist illustrates that.”

Illustration has always been a passion of mine. For me I get a really excited when I think to myself "What will I get to create next?" Every new project presents new possibilities and there is no limits to what I can create.
“In photography there are no shadows that cannot be illuminated.”
Photography is something I've recently started working with. For me I love the idea of capturing a moment in time. Photography for me is another skill in which I hope to incorporate into my graphic design and illustration.
Yeg Creatives & Social Media
I've recently become interested in Digital Marketing and social media. I've been doing my own social media for a few years now and I've noticed that the digital marketing field looks very promising and fun! When it comes down to it what I thrive on is problem solving. Graphic Design and Illustration are both about problem solving in their own ways and so is Digital Marketing. Digital Marketing is problem solving to a whole other level! The concept I find fun about digital marketing is looking at a product and finding the best ways for that product to make money and get in front of as much people as possible.
I started Yeg Creatives as a way for me to share images with people. For me, just looking at an image has never been enough. I want others to see it as well. I want to share what inspires me with as many people as I can. Yeg Creatives is my way of showcasing great local talent and I hope it will also be a way for me to get in front of a wider audience. I plan to develop Yeg Creatives into it's own website with possibly a blog and blog interview type articles. Yeg Creatives is just getting started! Follow it on instagram!
I am always looking for fun new projects! Do you have one you'd like me to do? Please contact me if you have a project you think I'd be a good fit for. I have a wealth of skills and can work with you to create whatever it is you desire for your company or for a gift. I am located in Edmonton, Alberta and can meet to discuss your project.
