I’m Tif, a designer with a love for branding, web, illustration and motion animation. I am currently working as a designer in the creativity department at Bell Media / Astral in Montreal, and looking for a creative position with people who are passionate about good design.
I really believe in the collaborative process and although I'm pretty autonomous, the kind of job I'm looking for would be as part of a team. I think that the best results come from having a few different perspectives in order to etch out the best solution. And ideally, I would really like to build something great and have fun together while doing it.

I work on the creativity team at Bell Media's Astral Out of Home division with a bunch of really great people. We do a lot of mock ups proposing ideas to clients and agencies to show them all the amazing things they can do in our media spaces. My primary role is to be the guardian of the brand and to create web, video and print materials that promote the company, the creative department and that keep a consistent visual language.

I went freelance for a year doing design work for a number of great clients until I was scooped up by Bell Media.

Zoom is a fitness media company now, but back in my days with the company they had a lot of divisions. My official title was digital designer so I basically took care of everything that wasn't print related. It's where I developed my motion design skills, creating promotional videos of our best campaigns and nurtured my growing love for web design when I was the lead designer on the website re-design.

I learned how to code by working on HTML email. Before that everything I had done was in Dreamweaver or Flash.I started as an email designer but eventually began designing small websites and custom themes for blogs.
Extremely Part Time. Taking a few courses per semester to complete my degree within the next decade or so. So far I've covered product design, graphic design, 3D modelling, new media philosophy. I've built a small work table and a wooden sculpture that has since become a cat tree for my adorable cat.
This diploma focused on design process and management, design history, typography, digital imaging, editorial design, branding and professional graphic design practice, while developing and producing professional, visual communication pieces, working in a studio environment.
We set out to create an in-house customized solution that would standardize the documents and minimize the errors.
