All About Me

Hi! I’m Martin, a Toronto-based Designer and Art Director focused on print and digital design. I’m a lover of bulldogs, typography and I always enjoy a well made martini.  I’m currently an independent freelancer working on a contract basis with a digital agency but I’m open to any new opportunities that align with my design ethics and values.

 

When I’m not watching movies, my evenings are spent as an Artistic Associate with Theatre Topikos, a Toronto based indie theatre collective. I am also the co-creator of Counter/Stroke, a queer, pop culture clothing brand.

Feel free to contact me for freelance projects, quotes, collaborations or just to say Hi!

Design

Experienced in print and digital realms. I have designed for magazines, social media marketing, annual reports, web and UI design.

UX

I have worked on UX teams within the research phase for government clients, as well as wireframing and conceptualizing digital experiences that aim to educate and empower the user.
