Janice Kun for USC Dornsife Magazine

Our genetic blueprint is still a very mysterious concept. For the article "Molecular You" in the most recent issue of USC Dornsife magazine, Janice Kun captures that mystery and intrigue in a series of beautifully atmospheric illustrations. Using a combination of line drawing, watercolor and photography Janice's imagery provides layers of subtle, yet powerful, detail. With incredible art direction by Daniel Knapp we are given the chance to ponder the impact of our DNA through Janice's work.

Greg Stevenson’s Poster Series for Open Mic Night

Nothing better than catching some live music at the local pub, right? Greg Stevenson has been a regular at Scallywags  for quite some time and over the years he’s been responsible for a lot of their terrific poster art. The assignment to brand and help promote their new Open Mic Night was right up Greg’s alley.

Greg used his signature hand-drawn lineart with plenty of color and texture when he designed and illustrated this poster series. Greg’s unique way of contextualizing photos perfectly captures what we know will be a good time.

Janice Kun for the Government of Ontario

  Janice Kun collaborated with Deirdre Hughes, creative director with Agency59, to create the illustration used for Kathleen Wynne's Government of Ontario Sexual Violence and Harassment Action Plan.  Both an honour and a challenge, the art needed to show the optimism the new Action Plan promises, while at the same time representing the struggle and the work to be done on this important societal problem.

 

To accomplish all of this, Janice's illustration needed to take a conceptual approach in showing the urgency and the action to be taken on the issue of sexual violence and harassment.  Through her unique blend of photography, hand rendering and digital collage, Janice's mixed media illustration set out to do all this.

SVHAP cover

Below in the main double page spread of the report, three figures work together to reshape a landscape that moves rhythmically from the darkness of an abstracted, geometric background, into one of brighter, bolder colours, and organic shapes. Their dialogue sparks the process of change by writing a new script, painting a new horizon, and cultivating new growth.

Janice Kun - Black History Stamps

Canada Post celebrates Black History Month by commemorating two distinctive and historic African-Canadian communities: Vancouver's Hogan's Alley and Halifax's Africville.  

Working closely with designer, Karen Smith, Janice Kun created the background watercolors depicting historical churches, central to these communities.  Typical of Janice Kun's style, the pairing of the paintings with supplied historical photographs is a delicate dream-like balance between these real people and remembered communities.

Tracy Walker for Scintelligence

Working with Gayle Akler of Sparkplug Marketing and Communications, Tracy Walker created elements to showcase the Life Sciences start up, Scintelligence, whose purpose is to "work directly with industry, academia and other key stakeholders to bring prospective partners together..."  The concept was all about growth and digging deeper and Tracy's organic and shapes and scientific iconography work perfectly to convey the message visually.  The elaborate promotional package housed an actual shovel (with a sprinkling of dirt no less!)--to drive home the message which was further conveyed in the accompanying brochure.

John Webster: The Thrifty Life

Freelance Art Director Samantha Edwards asked John Webster to illustrate a feature for Canadian Living called The Thrifty Life.  John's retro collage approach evokes a time when life seemed much simpler and free of excess.  Author Patricia Dawn Robertson writes about her experience leaving a life of debt and over-spending and entering into one of thrift and frugality, which she says, "...can get a bad rap sometimes, but living these values can actually make your life more satisfying, happier even."
