    uniE621 ZAAZ Wellness
    ZAAZ is fitness technology made modern, providing the power to transform bodies with less effort and in less time. ZAAZ's motion therapy technology provides safe and effective stimulation of joints and muscles, helping mitigate the symptoms of circulatory issues and chronic pain. I was hired by ZAAZ to create a new slick looking interface for their motion therapy machine. Taking into account the multiple different people that would be using the machine, the UI was designed with bright bold colour and components that not only represented the ZAAZ brand but was simple and easy to use. https://www.twine.net/signin #graphicdesigner #branding #designer
    uniE621 Asian Carp Invasion
    I worked alongside Evermaven to produce an 2D animated motion video about the threat of Asian carp establishment. The video continues to be used as an educational tool that explains this imminent issue to the public, teaches them how to recognize and ID these fish, and what actions to take when they encounter these invasive species. Tens of thousands of people have seen the video at the Royal Ontario Museum and in outreach efforts by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada. https://www.twine.net/signin #2DAnimation #ArtDirector #designer #illustrator

    uniE621 Empower A Life: Elephant Poaching
    Asher Jay is an international adventurer and public figure whose compelling paintings, sculptures, installations, animations, ad campaigns, and films all have a single purpose: to incite global action on behalf of wildlife conservation. Asher’s travels to the frontline have made her a witness and story-teller, combating illegal wildlife trafficking, promoting habitat sanctuaries, and illuminating humanitarian emergencies. Her core message is about biodiversity loss during the Anthropocene–the Age of Man—and she shares this message through an uncanny ability to envision a growing spectrum of emotional art that captures the attention of audiences the world over. https://www.twine.net/signin
