Graphic Design Consulting Professional Services Arts & Culture


Gabriola Island Chamber - Business of the Year ad + Annual general meeting adDrifter Media is offering beautifully crafted branding, packaging, and illustration design services. Branding Crafting brands with your marketing goal in mind, is where I excel. I understand that your brand is your company's soul and personality. While our image-focused society has always paid less attention to the core and more attention to the surface, individuals are continually thirsting for authenticity. I believe today’s businesses definitely need constructive imagination to connect deeply with their people, in a pledge to sustainable change. Working together we can create a unique, authentic and memorable brand identity. Print and Packaging Design I work with clients who share my vision of quality and experience of a product, whether it be material, commercial or experimental. My process balances concept and craft, moving from broad strategy to fine execution. I believe in the importance of creating memorable packaging by bridging the gap between business strategy and design, with a focus on impactful and unexpected experiences. From research to design, prototyping to production, I deliver packaging solutions that meet my client’s complete requirements. Let your packaging be the ultimate brand storyteller. Illustrations Whether it's handmade or digital, I love drawing and painting one of a kind illustrations. I specialize in vector-based illustration and my work is characterized by my artistic skills, sense of colours, attention to composition and details. I am no stranger to traditional tools (pencils, markers, oil paints), but I try to fully use the potential of the latest technology by frequently combining traditional drawing with computer processing and by creating fully digital graphics often adorned with custom typography. I am a graphic artist creating illustrations for commercial and personal use across the creative spectrum from advertising to product packaging and beyond. My goal is to help express my client’s vision seamlessly by crafting one of a kind custom design solutions. I believe that the most successful relationships are truly collaborative and the best work is created together. Building meaningful working relationships with my clients creates powerful results. I work within a boutique approach, process and pricing model that is designed for today’s market. My clients range from start-ups to global companies, across a variety of industries, including consumer, retail, fashion, and food and beverage.
