Legacies 150 is one of a series of thirteen photo-based interactive essays produced by The National Film Board of Canada to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday and to showcase its diversity of people, place and experience. I was hired to art direct and design five of the stories. Each story was crafted with the digital reader in mind – the stories had to flow seamlessly and guide online readers through a immersive scroll-based journey combining beautiful full bleed photography, sound, subtle movement and text. In addition to being presented online, Legacies 150 was shown as a museum exhibit in Toronto and Halifax and featured in media publications across Canada. View the live Legacies 150 project.
Blood in the Soil tells the contrasting story of Canadian war zone photographer Larry Towell and Afghan fixer Hashim Shukoor and their deep connection to their respective home lands and people. View the live story.
