Katy Dockrill for National Drapery

When art director Lila Graham first contacted us to work on the new website she was designing for National Drapery, it was an exciting opportunity for Katy Dockrill to bring her flair for sewing and love of home decor to an illustration assignment!  The new ND website was the inspirational vision of Natalie Hartman, who was a delight to work with.  Visit the ND homepage and see how Lila and Katy literally brought Natalie's vision to life here.

The new website design also included a series of drawings to highlight the many custom products National Drapery offers.  Katy adores creating for surface design, so when Natalie asked her to include an indication of patterns to depict various textiles and bring some flair to these more technical illustrations, she was happy to oblige.  The result?  These little gems...we've combined a few of our faves here:

Ian Phillips for The Government of Canada

Art director, Paul Bonsell of Manifest Communications had a vision to create a light-hearted infographic to illustrate the serious business of the Get Cyber Safe web campaign sponsored by the Government of Canada.  With his vivid imagination and fun style, Ian Phillips was just the illustrator to deliver the faux pirate's map!  The infographic's goal is to help the general public get smart on Phishers who lurk in the deep waters of cyber space, gathering personal information--banking info, credit card numbers and passwords etc.  For more information visit getcybersafe.ca.

Betsy Everitt: Play App Art for Participaction!

  We were really excited when Hambly & Woolley approached us to have Betsy Everitt create the art for an app called Bring Back Play.  We could immediately see how Betsy's vibrant and playful art would lend perfectly to Participaction's mission--encouraging unstructured and imaginative play.  Participaction is a national not-for-profit organization who's vision is to get Canadians active.  We asked H&W to tell us more about their involvement in the Bring Back Play campaign and this is what they had to say:

"(We were) initially asked to come up with a print piece, but instead conceived of the idea for the interactive app. It seemed to be a better idea to help Participaction reach a broader audience with the message that we have to get kids moving. "Bring Back Play" relies on a nostalgic tug at the heart to get parents, care-givers, teachers, counsellors, etc., engaged in games we used to play. The app allows the user to post comments, upload video and photos, rate games, share games and add new games. We worked through the experiential aspects, through the wireframe, design and development -- in both English and French. Betsy Everitt's charming and colourful illustrations provided the friendly personality of the app and the functional wayfinding icons. It has been released to much acclaim and press coverage."

Monika Melnychuk for Marquis Wine Cellar

This was a super fun project for the Marquis Wine Cellar, a specialty wine store in Vancouver, BC. They wanted to show off Vancouver's amazing attractions and culture with a twist. So, we had wine be a part of each illustration. From downhill skis in the shape of wine bottles to Inukshuk's holding wine glasses. The art featured on the van creates an eye catching 'out-of-home' advertisement for Marquis.
