print advertising

Print advertising has been one of the constants in my career. Newspaper ads, brochures, flyers, business cards, door hangers, as well as laying out newspapers and magazines. Below are some slide shows of the work I've done in print.

newspaper ads

I have been building ads for newspapers since I graduated from college. My first job was working for the Bargain Hunter Classified ads newspaper. In 2001 I started my first full-time job as the graphic designer at the Manotick Messenger, Barrhaven Independent, and Osgoode Packet. Working for these papers, I would create all the ads that appeared in the paper. In 2007 I began working for Metroland Media, in the same capacity, as an ad builder and layout specialist. In 2011, I began working at Giant Tiger and continue to build newspaper ads for various stores across Canada.


Here is a selection of ads I've built for Giant Tiger. These include grocery ads, flyer ads, fashion, or generic messages.
