Soft WordsPersonal Project—Web design, branding
On March 24, 2020, I learned that my family member was intubated for COVID-19. He, like many hardworking individuals, is a service worker; meaning that he had shown up to work every day to provide for himself and his family.
On March 28, 2020, Soft Words was born, a crowd-sourced project where anyone with the link could read and write anecdotes of positivity. There were over 150 visitors and 23 contributions of strength and support.
Meet Me in the MiddleThesis—Editorial Design
Meet Me In The Middle is the output of a year long thesis project at York/Sheridan design in 2019.

My thesis advisor happened to be everyone’s favourite type designer, Paul Sych.
