Hi, I’m Eric.
I design:

This new frontier of my design career has already included promotional work, music videos, film titles, credits, and animation. I have thus far focused on motion type, data visualization and visual FX work, for artists such as The Digging Roots, Amanda Rheaume, and Wet Heaven, and films such as Toxic Neighbour, Eulogy for the Dead Sea, and Bittersweet Becoming


My design career began in print in 2005. Since then I have had some amazing creative opportunities but more importantly I have had the chance to work with and learn from some of the best in the business. With these great peers I have collaborated on some big magazines: Inside Entertainment, International Architecture & Design, Sir, The Reporter, Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants, Canada’s Best Bars, and Ski Canada. I have worked with national newspapers including: The Globe & Mail, The Toronto Star, Metro Daily and The New York Times. I have developed national print campaigns and strategies for brands such as: World Mastercard, Burberry, Hugo Boss, Lacoste, L’oreal, Stolichnaya Vodka, Smashbox, Diesel, Sony, Entertainment One, Visa, and American Express. And I have also had the chance to work on some amazing Canadian projects with the likes of The Toronto International Film Festival, The Canadian International Autoshow, Parks Canada, Historica Canada, and Canada’s Walk of Fame.


I began building websites in 1997 while still in high school. In the years since I have built websites and web components for a number of companies including Inside Entertainment, Sony, Lacoste, Hugo Boss, Bell, Tim Hortons, Mac Cosmetics, Shopper’s Drug Mart, Rogers, and  Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants. 


Woodworking has been a passion of mine since my youth. From custom and refurbished furniture to hand carved pieces, I continue to explore the wide spectrum of fields that make up the diverse art of woodworking while creating unique pieces for my clients crafted from salvaged and reclaimed wood. My work has been exhibited at DesignTO and the Interior Design Show Toronto. 


From a non-alcoholic beer brand featured in a winning pitch on CBC’s Dragon’s Den, to film production companies to symbolizing a neighbourhood for charity, it is always a real joy to give an identity to a new idea, business or cause.
