Designer, Senior art director

Jack has been the designer and senior art director for Corporate Knights since fall 2011. He is also a freelance illustrator, creating editorial illustrations, posters, graphics, and comics. A recent review of his work stated that: “In much of his recent work, a minimalist and often restricted approach to form and color is wonderfully complimented by the addition of fine details and contrasting accents, while in many of his other pieces, a more playful tone is achieved through elaborate, dense line-work and subtle abstraction.” Past clients have included the CBC, Globe and Mail, Maclean’s, McGill University, New York Press, Toronto Life, Volkswagen (Via Palmhaves) and The Walrus.
