I live my life
like a video game.

Hey, my name is Charlie and I’m an independent
graphic designer based out of Ottawa, ON.

I live my life like a video game.

Developing new skills, unlocking achievements,

conquering challenges and leveling up.

I enjoy creating online experiences
and makin’ things move.

Millie's Pierogi

While working at Pointer Creative I was lucky enough to help redesign this site for a family-owned pierogi shop. Even though we didn't end up using this design, I had a lot of fun with it.

You can checkout what the final site ended up looking like here!

Wild Leaf

While working at Pointer Creative I was lucky enough to help design this beautiful online store! Once we had a clear design direction it was my responsability to put together the Our Story and Promise pages. I created several mockups in Sketch, and after receiving final approval, they were built by the development team. I also designed a pop-up subscription window for the home page.

Air Canada Pilots Association

An awareness campaign that I worked on with spark* advocacy and the Air Canada Pilots Association.

Canadian airline rules around pilot Flight and Duty Time (FDT) vary. Under the status quo Canada lags behind the rest of the world as almost every other jurisdiction has implemented regulations to comply with science-based rules established by the International Civil Aviation Organization.

The Safer Skies campaign advocates for the federal government to improve pilot fatigue regulations. To learn more, checkout saferskies.ca

Canadian Pacific Railway

I worked with spark* advocacy and Canadian Pacific Railway on this unique campaign.

Canada’s existence as a nation depended on the construction of rail lines to link BC to eastern Canada. Following the lead of the 1967 Confederation Train, it is fitting that CP’s Community Train Tour should traverse the country to remind Canadians of this historic fact, and how the railway has connected Canada and Canadians for 135 years.

CP will run the ‘Spirit of Tomorrow’ train from Vancouver, BC to Ottawa, ON between July 28th and August 20th, making 11 other stops in communities along the way. Each stop will feature CP’s unique heritage cars and diesel locomotive; free concert by Dean Brody with an opening First Nations act and free activities on the ground.
