“The Rematch” Poster

Earlier this year, an international friendly match United States Women’s national team was organised for June 2nd 2013 at BMO Field in Toronto. This match against the Americans was the first time the two teams would clash since the dramatic semi-final at the Women’s Olympic Football tournament at the London 2012 Olympics.

The inspiration behind the marketing campaign visuals was the War of 1812, which had just celebrated its centennial. The announcement to the media was made at Fort York near Toronto, one of the key locations of the war.

With the War of 1812 in mind, I designed a poster that would literally transform the soccer field into a battlefield filled with smoke with captain Christine Sinclair kicking the ball as if it was a canon ball.

The match CAN v USA was Sold-out with the first hour and set a record crowd at BMO Field.

FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015 : Applications

As you may know, Canada will be hosting the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in 2014 and the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2015. As the designer for Canada Soccer, I’m involved in some of the design work needed by the Women’s World Cup Canada 2015 National Organising Committee. Here are few of many applications I worked on so far.

Design for the 2013 AGM

Each year the Canadian Soccer Association’s board of directors and the provincial associations members assemble during an Annual General Meeting (AGM) to discuss different issues surrounding canadian soccer. For this year’s assembly, I simply used the new Canada Soccer brand to design the AGM accreditations, backdrops and some other applications.

Rebranding the Canadian Soccer Association

One of my first order of business when I started my job at the Canadian Soccer Association (Canada Soccer) was to rebrand the non-profit organization. Besides a logo, the branding was almost non-existent. With that said, this was not a full rebrand because since the Women’s National Team won the bronze medal at the London 2012 Women’s Olympic Football Tournament, the Canada Soccer logo was more recognized than ever. So, I had to develop brand guidelines, a graphic signature and all the applications to go along the existing logo.

The main inspiration behind the graphic signature was the hexagonal netting of a modern soccer goal. It is the target and ultimate objective that every player is trying to reach. As an organization, it represent Canada Soccer’s quest “or goal” to reach the World Cup and for Canada to become a leading soccer nation.

The final product was well received by the organization and with this new corporate brand, the provincial associations seemed to be more inclined than ever to unite and develop the future of soccer in Canada. The short version of the brand guidelines is available here.

Motion design corporate presentation

In my quest to master motion design, I started a personal project inspired by the title sequence of the miniseries The Pacific and The Borgias. Since I already worked for them in the past, I decided to use the Caisse Populaire Desjardins Rideau d’Ottawa 100th anniversary as the subject of this project. The one minute sequence is a corporate presentation of the origin and milestones on this financial institution’s history. The video is available in 720p on Youtube.
