I have been fortunate to support a wide variety of non-profit organizations across Alberta (and beyond) through research, writing, graphic design, communications, marketing, public relations, social media, and project management. Need help with an upcoming creative project? Drop me a line!
City of Lethbridge Rec & Culture (2020)
The recent increase of cyclists on local streets made the Lethbridge Cycling Handbook an important community project. As project manager, writer, researcher, and graphic designer for this project, I enlisted local photographer Angeline Simon and illustrator Eric Dyck to develop a vibrant and informative set of resources that helps cyclists learn bicycle basics to stay safe while riding on the roads.
Mia van Leeuwen (2020)
Designed a nice clean website for theatre artist and University of Lethbridge drama professor Mia van Leeuwen.
“I really enjoyed working with Tyler on the creation of a new artist website; he was very knowledgeable, organized, patient, a strong communicator, and has a great sense of design. I highly recommend his work!“– Mia van Leeuwen
Alberta Cycling Coalition (2019)
My passion for cycling made it easy to support this non-profit in their initial development as an organization, by creating their visual identity, website, and a variety of graphic design and communications pieces to achieve their goals of making Alberta roads safer for cyclists.
“Tyler has been a strong consultant for the Alberta Cycling Coalition, and organized our entire brand imaging including our website, logo, educational material, all our communication templates, social media, and newsletter setup. He is very professional and easy to work with and has keen artistic eye. We will continue to consult with Tyler for all our branding needs.“– Aaron Schooler, Alberta Cycling Coalition Chair
British Columbia Museums Association (2019)
I developed the Guide to Accessioning and Acquisitions for the BCMA’s Small Museums Toolkit, as part of their collection of learning resources suitable for museums of all shapes and sizes.
Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden (2017)
Hired as an exhibition consultant for the garden’s 50th anniversary season, I was responsible for research, development and design of all exhibits and displays interpreting Japanese culture and history in Southern Alberta for the 2017 programming season. I also developed inventory and catalog process for exhibit artifacts and created new processes and policies for artifacts donations and loans.
Nikkei Memory Capture Project (2017)
Completed graphic design for the traveling exhibition “Stop the Presses,” which investigated archival documents to understand the way Nikkei has been portrayed in local media, and interpreted the history of Nikkei (descendants of Japanese immigrants) in Southern Alberta. Displayed at the Galt Museum, University of Lethbridge Library, and the Raymond Pioneer Museum.
“I was happy with how the ‘Stop the Presses!’ exhibit came together. Tyler was always on schedule; he was patient and responsive in helping our research team realize our vision for the project.”– Dr. Carly Adams, Nikkei Memory Capture Project
Environment Lethbridge (2017)
Acting as exhibition consultant for this special project, I provided support to develop a community-focused exhibition that investigated 150 years of environment issues and concerns in the Lethbridge region. I was also responsible for developing art direction, completing graphic design, and coordinating fabrication and production for all exhibition materials.
Wide Skies Music & Arts Festival (2017 – 2019)
My role as communications consultant has involved providing strategic direction and support for many aspects of festival development and event management, along with communications, graphic design, marketing and social media.
I was a key contributor to the initial research and development of this innovative, educational platform on the impact of waste disposal and making the case for waste reduction in Lethbridge. I was also responsible for the final copywriting on the first phase interactive web platform Waste in YQL, which won the 2017 Summit Creative Award for Public Service Website.
