Click to two times to enlarge. Soil formation takes a very long time. For example, in areas such as Canada that were completely covered by glaciers, soil formation started as soon as glaciers retreated. The graphics illustrate evolution (progression) of landscapes during the past 25,000 years. At the peak of the last glaciation, about 25,000 years ago, the land was covered by ice. Glaciers retreated around 10,000 years ago and revealed a barren landscape blanketed by glacial deposits and meltwater. In the present day, glacial deposits are covered by vegetation. This illustration was designed for the the Virtual Soil Science Learning resources project, which is a very exiting project I’ve had the opportunity to work on, in collaboration with Dr. Maja Krzic and Dr. Stephanie Grant. This is just one piece of the Virtual Soil Web mega project, which has won the Award of Excellence and Innovation in Graphic Design and Web from CNIE (Canadian Network for Innovation in Education).
For designing the book cover I had to create a scene of a lady bug catching an aphid. They in Leah’s book, in some really nice mathematical connections in at least 3 places. They are “central characters” in the story.
Designed using my photographs. I love photographing the forest, its flora and fauna.
I have designed a template for all Vantage courses and customized the design for each course.
Logo design study – mock-ups and the final version for the Office of Learning Technology. Designed with Adobe Illustrator.
Logo / icon created from scratch, starting with a few hand-drawn mock-up and designed with Adobe Illustrator CC. This icon shows the role of soil in sustaining all terrestrial life including humanity. The person embodied in the tree is rooted in soil of all the continents and produces her food (fruits) whose color is derived from the soil. Soil is not depicted literally but its life-support function is instead emphasized. It highlights the close intertwining between the primary productivity of terrestrial ecosystems and humanity’s welfare and shows that soil is the foundation of our existence on this planet. The icon also has an optimistic outlook, which is much needed to revive hope and interest in protecting our natural resources. The leaves are waving in the sky in a celebratory fashion and the fruits have a full, glowing shape. Love, nurture, and respect the soil and it will feed us all and give us reassurance and reasons for celebrating a healthy and sustainable life on our planet.
3D VR CAD design and illustration rendering of a passenger gangway built for the Ballantyne Pier Cruise Ship Terminal – Port of Vancouver. Both the gangway and the truck were designed at exact scale in AutoCAD, then exported to and rendered with 3D Studio Max.
