A set of four icons made to identify different types of content on CBC Music's YouTube channel. The icons were constructed by taking the play-button triangle from CBC Music's logo and duplicating, resizing and rotating it as necessary to form each concept. No other shapes were used.
Created as a way to brand featured content within a diverse and frequently updated blog, these "stamps" were applied to the corner of a featured post's image. They needed to be easy to notice, and easy to ignore. Above all they needed to communicate.

CBC Music provides bands and musicians with their own artist pages, where they can promote themselves and upload their music for people to hear. To date, more than 46,000 artists have created CBC Music Artist Pages, uploading more than 100,000 songs to the site.
After existing for years as separate Desktop and Mobile sites sharing the same data, the next major iteration of the site will be fully responsive. I was brought in to design the new responsive interfaces for the Artist Index, the individual Artist Pages, and the Artist CMS whereby artists add and manage their content.
Along with general layout and styling, several interface components were required, including responsive image and audio uploaders and editable track and album listings. In addition I was responsible for defining and documenting the behaviours of each component for the benefit of the developers building the pages.
The site has four breakpoints: Mobile, Tablet (Portrait), Tablet (Landscape) and Desktop.

Photoshop composites for CBC Radio 3’s acclaimed flagship podcast with host Grant Lawrence. The podcast was fully chaptered, so that users could skip easily from song to song and see a photo of each artist, which also enabled us to add a visual element to Grant’s host breaks. The approach was simple: Grant would give me some brief notes of what he’d discussed in each break, and I’d construct a visual riff on each subject. We did hundreds of these, producing around five images a week for several years.
