Radio is a medium where everything is timed to the second. There isn't a lot of room for error and when mistakes happen, well, they get noticed.
Designing graphics and developing a web site for radio is pretty much the same kind of crazy. You build a brand and design for a promotion that goes on the site and might live there for a week, tops. A lot of effort and creativity goes into something that has a very short life.
Below is a collection of some of the more memorable promos I worked on. Each comes with its own story. When I say memorable I mean that from the entire spectrum of how a project can go.
As stated above, radio is its very own thing.

I have designed and helped produce signage, trade show graphics, billboards and point of sale systems for many companies. Here are a few examples.
Produced in 2008 for QNX Software Systems. Trade show graphics for their Embedded World installation in Germany
With the change of format from 106.9 THE BEAR to JUMP! 106.9, there was a lot of design work to be complete for the March 31, 2014 launch.
I'm very lucky to have been a part of the following projects.
Brand designed for a fashion designer based out of Toronto who has created a line of haute couture bomber jackets.
Miss Spelld is a performance concept that has gone through a series of evolutions. It's current incarnation is still under development.
Identity for a local television program that pushes the limits of good taste while giving you some grist to talk about around the water cooler the next day. (Site in development)
The Fund for a New Generation is a not-for-profit organization that supports Ottawa's underprivileged children and youth by hosting an annual gala event. Identity design for their 2004 gala.
Apocalypse-apalooza was a major station promotion that we started planning a full year before execution. We wanted to use the end of the Mayan calendar (December 21, 2012) as the focus of the promo.
Not trying to brag or anything but I came up with the Apocalypse-apalooza name and, the graphic above, was selected immediately. It feels good to nail the concept from the get go.
A collection of irreverent t-shirts that 106.9 THE BEAR gave away to promote the Apocalypse-Apalooza promotional campaign leading up to December 21, 2012.
Trailer wrap that 106.9 THE BEAR used to take to the streets giving away great prizes on location to help promote the Apocalypse-Apalooza campaign leading up to December 21, 2012.
These were designed as downloads for listeners. We got each announcer to pose for a different plague or end of he world scenaro. THIS was so much fun to produce.
Signage system developed for use in the Diefenbunker at the December 21, 2012 Break Into The Bunker End Of The World Party. I, Mother Earth headlined.
Trailer Wrap developed for the station trailer. It was taken on the road to promote the End Of The World Party and for giveaways.
I worked on the design and development of the BEAR babe over three years.
THE BEAR EEach month had a new theme and the entrants had a chance to win a $1000 and a professional photo shoot with hair and make up. 2014 is a short calendar as 106.9 THE BEAR ceased to be and became JUMP! 106.9.
A series of t-shirts designed for staff and to hand out to listeners.
I love the moving picture.
Video is something I have been involved in in one way or another since 1994
