Mathieu Lefevre: The Stuff Things Are Made Of


Regina Rex presents the first solo exhibition of new and previously viewed artworks by Mathieu Lefevre, since his untimely death in 2011. Lefevre’s work has tirelessly engaged in the idea and materiality of ‘bad’ art, often pairing the underpinnings of language art and tautological revelations, with slap-stick execution. I was asked by Regina Rex gallery to put together a standalone takeaway piece that embodied the essence of his work. A quote from his book, Guide Pratique pour artistes, emblazons the back, while numerous art-traps are featured on the front.

Mathieu Lefevre was tragically killed while riding his bike on October 18, 2011. Find out what you can do to support justice.

Picton Picturefest


Picton Picturefest is a four day festival of film screenings, youth workshops, parties and merriment amidst one of the most picturesque communities in Ontario. We did the full creative direction, branding, identity and advertising for the festival. We created illustrations of landmarks that were familiar to the town of Picton, Ontario, which helped to promote the theme of community and to also give the idea that the festival is in a rural area.

Makeshift Magazine


Makeshift Magazine is a kickstarter funded project, that showcases creativity and design in unlikely places. Primarily a magazine, Makeshift features ingenuity in developing nations where design is a solution to a problem based on necessity rather than a solution based on marketing or aesthetic appeal. This postcard was sent out to everyone who contributed to the initial kickstarter fund as an acknowledgement and gratitude.

El Espectador


El Espectador converted from a weekly format back to daily in 2008. Following the successful redesign of the weekly in 2004, we were instrumental in the makeover and conversion to a daily in the European tabloid format. While the Nameplate remains the same, the typography usage has been readapted to fit the horizontal stress of the new design, and format.

The rich colour palette serves as a navigational tool, defining the emphasis of the day of the week, such as Business on Monday, Sport on Tuesday, International on Wednesday and so on. While newspaper circulation is shrinking elsewhere, it is exciting to see expansion here.
