Homeboy

Don’t be worried. This isn’t an anxious backward-looking magazine. It is, however, just a tad nostalgic. Homeboy hearkens back to the days when housewives made real dinners, people threw real parties, and friends dropped by to say hi, instead of sending a text message.

Most men these days move out and live in squalor, or they stay at home and live with mom. Finding a man with a well put together living space is rare. Some don’t care. Some don’t know. Finding a man with a great pad that throws a mean party is a tough task too.

This will take you at least one step closer to being the king of your castle instead of the master of your dump.

Cosmos Gaming

Cosmos Gaming came to us looking for an overhaul of their current website. They offer readers an independent and honest approach to gaming and music news, reviews, interviews, and more. CG wanted their new layout to have equal emphasis on both gaming and music, as they had previously prioritized gaming. They also wanted space for above-the-fold advertisements, as well as an attractive layout geared towards their younger male target audience. Our job was to produce a layout in Photoshop as the client had a HTML coder/slicer ready to take our design and make it usable in WordPress. The new website has yet to launch and is currently being coded.

S.C.E.N.E. Music Festival

This project was completed for my studies and has no affiliation with S.C.E.N.E. Music Festival.

The challenge was to create a systematic approach to a large festival including a logo, poster, tickets, a handout/program, wristbands, etc. S.C.E.N.E. Music Festival was an obvious choice as I had played in a band at the festival a number of times and understood the niche and market of it. Many great bands have played S.C.E.N.E. including Alexisonfire, City & colour, Billy Talent, Every Time I Die, Down With Webster and the Arkells. Over 6,000 people attend the one-day festival every year.
