For these projects, words and images must be carefully chosen to give insight into the subject while keeping text brief. I love diving deep into a topic and finding the story waiting to be told, finding the right visuals to tell the story, and finding the words to bring it to life. And from botanical sketches to maps, my illustration skills also come in handy.
Cowichan Estuary Nature Trail and Open-Air Classroom
In addition to panel design, I edited text and shaped the storyline of the entire trail in close collaboration with Goetz Schuerholz of the Cowichan Estuary Restoration and Conservation Association. I also took a few photos, sourced illustrations, and researched archival images. Goetz had the vision for this project and pulled it all together with a ton of hard work from himself, volunteers, and supportive businesses.
Historic Nature Trail at Fort Rodd Hill
This project was a collaboration between the Royal BC Museum and Parks Canada at Fort Rodd Hill National Historic Site. I designed the early concepts for several panels and created large illustrations that were used throughout the trail, including a site map.
Mobile Panel Display about Estuary Ecology
My primary role was graphic design. I also helped shape the text and the flow of topics. The project was a collaboration between the Royal BC Museum and the Cowichan Estuary Restoration and Conservation Association (CERCA).
Royal BC Museum Signage and Interactive Exhibits
On contract with the Royal BC Museum exhibitions department, I worked on a wide variety of projects. It’s truly inspiring to work with a team that can build an amazing immersive experience for visitors.
