introduction a little bit about me & what i do I am a graphic designer/artist from Montreal. I design logos, websites, brochures, banners, cd covers and everything in between. Though my focus has been print and digital media, my roots and passion are in traditional art. I have been drawing and have an enduring love for arts since young. I love creating and sharing with others and find inspiration in just about anything and anywhere.

my design philosophy Keep it simple, keep it bold, make it eye catching. These are the principles I embrace. This is my formula, this is my design philosophy There is nothing better than a well integrated design that showcases a multitude of harmonious colors but still keeps a simple layout. By keeping things as simple as possible, I believe that the people who see a design/art have better chance to understand and grasp the ideas that the designer/ artist wants to show, every one will profit and enjoy.

print / editorial / advertising

It isn’t a question of enhancement through design. Whether an editor realizes it or not, design is part of what he does every time he prints the paper. - Louis Silverstein, on design


bride & groom canada magazine spread | 09/2012 | Photoshop / InDesign


SO TELL US HOW THE 2BE BRIDE COLLECTION CAME ABOUT. I’ve had a passion for design since I was a child - when I was four I painted rocks and sold them, and my mother and I worked on c lothing and accessories and would sell them at art shows. It’s always been a passion of mine. When I got married in 1988 my gown was inspired by Princess Diana with sleeves bigger than my head, and I was really inspired to serve brides. For many years now our team has quietly been serving brides with our destinations - we’re responsible for hundreds of weddings every year. We also have fine china, florals, and just last year we launched our collection of bridal gowns and special occasion dresses.

WHO INSPIRES YOU?

WHY DO YOU ENJOY WEDDING-RELATED WORK SO MUCH?

My biggest inspiration is based on a return to elegance, and that comes from Elizabeth Taylor. What a spectacular inspiration this woman is - the way she would wear a gown and accessorize it, like with a headdress with feathers, was amazing. She taught me about attention to detail - she had an eye that was like nobody’s business! Her love of jewellery inspired our desire to bring that sparkle into our collection too. Audrey Hepburn inspired some of our A-line gowns as well.

I love serving brides. I quickly learned how underserved brides are with my own challenges. Our team created style guides, so if we’re talking to a bride who is romantic and wants the traditional wonderful richness of a European country wedding, we know which gowns to show her and we have jewellery and accessories that will coordinate with that. On your wedding day you don’t want anything that will distract from the moment - only to enhance it and make memories.

Mon Cheri is the designer and we just knew this was the team we needed to be in business with. There’s so much attention to the construction of the gowns. I was a bridesmaid at my best friend’s wedding, and when I was reaching for the bouquet I fell out of my gown, so I know firsthand how important that construction truly is. So we keep that in mind with all our designs. I also learned from my days in modeling that what fits on one body doesn’t work on someone else, so we have looks for every woman.

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE DRESSESTHE DIFFERENT LOOKS?

KATHY IRELAND BY JENNIFER COX

Forbes’ cover girl and former international supermodel Kathy Ireland is known as “the supermodel turned supermogul.” She is currently the CEO and Chief Designer of kathy ireland Worldwide, a lifestyle design firm with a wedding division that can help coordinate every detail of your wedding, including destinations, flowers, and their new recently launched dress line by 2be Designs, which includes wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses and mother-of-the-bride styles. Bride & Groom Canada magazine sat down with Ireland to talk about her new line, her inspirations and why she is so in love with everything-weddings.

There are some that are light and airy. What’s very popular is the mermaid silhouette. One particular dress is a strapless soft toile mermaid gown - it’s got this gorgeous dropped waistline and toile-cut flowers that accent it. The attention to detail and craftsmanship is what truly excites me. There’s also a multi-tiered toile-length dress with a chapel train - we added a detachable halter and spaghetti straps are included, and it’s offered in ivory and white. And we have a crinkled taffeta modified mermaid gown with a sweetheart neckline, dropped waist and beautiful accents.

“MY BIGGEST INSPIRATION IS BASED ON A RETURN TO ELEGANCE, AND THAT COMES FROM ELIZABETH TAYLOR.” IF YOU COULD DESCRIBE WHAT A WEDDING DRESS IS IN ONLY A FEW WORDS, WHAT WOULD THEY BE? A wedding dress is a dream. It’s a fantasy come to life.

rainn ad | 12/2009 | mix media This is an ad proposal I made for the anti-sexual assault organization: RAINN. Though they did not choose this as their campaign poster I still think I did a good job. The Illustration is a drawing I worked on last November 2009 (graphite on paper painted with blue acrylic). The poster layout is made in Adobe InDesign.


YOU ARE NOT ALONE. 1 out of 3 women around the world have been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime. If you or someone you know is being abused, please, speak out.

BREAK THE SILENCE, BREAK THE CYCLE.
