The Hole Wins at Venice and Toronto Film Festivals

Friday, September 18, 2009 posted by james

Through the end of 2008 and early 2009 I worked on The Hole, providing illustrations for the lead character who takes his sketch books with him everywhere he goes.

The Hole is about a single mom and her two boys moving to a small town where the boys and their neighbour find a hole in the basement which unleashes evil to this world.

Given the current popularity of 3D films I’m excited to share with you that The Hole won best 3D film at the Venice Film Festival.

Salmonbellies Celebrate 125 Years

Tuesday, September 15, 2009 posted by james

It’s been another fun year working with the New Westminster Sr Salmonbellies. This year ¬†was very special since the team was celebrating it’s 125th year and the city of New Westminster has been celebrating it’s 150th! The Salmonbellies made us all proud winning their second straight WLA Championship before losing the Mann Cup in overtime of the 7th game.

Picking up on the celebration the ‘Bellies had a 125th Logo developed, and we ran with it – creating the season poster, programs, and promo materials again. From a design standpoint we worked to elevate the game materials beyond what we adopted in the first year. The programs are more visual and feature up to date photos from recent games or events. Even throughout the season we were still tinkering with the program and finally came to the visual versions seen to the right of the samples below:

We’re looking forward to doing this again next year!
