Jillian Ditner for D Weddings Magazine

  The He Said, She Said column in D Weddings magazine offered a lot of inspiration for Jillian Ditner's illustrations.  It's sage advice for all those walking down the aisle any time soon.

 

From the groom's, "stock the bar well, but not too well" and "no one cares that you're cutting the cake" to the bride's, "learn how to be gracious" and "DIY - within reason" Jillian captured it all with these playful and poignant images.

She Said: "For real though, get started."

Jillian Ditner for Real Simple

Jillian Ditner created these small figurative diagrammatic illustrations for one of our favorite magazines, Real Simple.  They accompany an article called Walk This Way which featured beautiful photographic images.  Each how-to item was introduced with one of Jillian's illustrations to demonstrate the point.  Kind of an info-graphic approach that married well with the photography.  Check out Jillian Ditner's updated portfolio  here.

Jillian Ditner: TIFF 2012 Walking Map for Timberland

A little while back marketing agency trevor peter communications contacted us about a walking map for Timberland, an official sponsor of TIFF (The Toronto International Film Festival).  When Jillian Ditner was chosen, we were pretty excited about this great opportunity!  Creative Director, Alexandra MacDonald and Jillian, along with Josh McKellar, Marketing Manager for Timberland, began the collaborative process of creating the first ever eco friendly tool for navigating TIFF. The initial direction was for Jillian to create her own artistic interpretation of Toronto, the TIFF ‘playground’ and the area venues downtown that host the Festival.  One of the key objectives for this user-friendly map was to inspire TIFF-goers to ‘get outside’, walk the festival, and connect with the community.  The finished map below is available as a downloadable pdf at the Timberland online Community here.  Enjoy the Festival!

Here is a glimpse into Jillian's process.
