At 9:04 am, on December 6, 1917, Halifax weathered a devastating explosion. A wartime city (equilibrium) endured a devastating explosion (disruption), is rescued and re-imagined (resolution) and rose anew (new equilibrium). From an experiential graphic design perspective, this project presented an opportunity to explore notions of the narrative.

Viega, a global leader in plumbing and heating technology, wanted to update the product showroom at their training facility in New Hampshire. Approximately 4,000 visitors would use room annually, but the audience wasn’t easy to define. It wasn’t enough to understand that freshwater is supplied and wastewater is drained, Matrex had to have a crash course in plumbing science so they could effectively harness and promote Viega’s unique value proposition.

Mod New York: Fashion Takes a Trip

The exhibition highlights a selection of visually groundbreaking and historically significant garments from the 1960s when American fashion underwent radical aesthetic transformations. As clothing also assumed communicative powers—reflecting the emergence of a counterculture, the women’s liberation movement and the rise of African-American consciousness, designers experimented by thinking of artistic realms. The installation boldly presents a decade of changing fashion immersed in a vibrant array of color, dynamic geometrical forms and graphic patterning.

Missing Voices

Princeton posed a difficult problem: Create a “marker” to celebrate President Woodrow Wilson that deals effectively with both his positive and negative qualities. The University’s ambivalence is antithetical to the time-honored tradition of unequivocally revering leaders.

The site is a plaza in front of the Wilson School of Government building, designed by Monoru Yamasaki. A large sculpture in the fountain was existing; Princeton stipulated that the fountain, the sculpture and all existing trees were to remain.

Sydney Park Business Centre

Sydney Park Business Centre

This site was originally a 1940 Australian Interwar Functionalist style factory building in Sydney, reconstructed 15 years ago with very few original features remain. All owners were frustrated with the lack of signage. The physical nomenclature was illogical. Low number suites on the first level and the remaining scattered on the ground level. Six entrances, and one well-hidden lift. Nearly everyone coming into the building would get lost.
