Michelle Ricketts from Evolve Fitness and Louise Green from Body Exchange, joined forces and are opening a new fitness centre catering towards women called Storm Fitness Inc. in North Vancouver. The grand opening is January 9th 2010.
They asked me to produce their logo which you can see above, I think it turned out well. They wanted a clean looking logo, while incorporating the “O” into a tornado. We then added some swirls and circles at a later date adding some character.
What do you think of the Storm Logo?
Check out some other logos and graphics I have created here.
I am quoted in an article from 2006 on the Star Online website. I was backpacking around South East Asia at the time, I didn’t even know it was an interview! haha funny, I just stumbled upon it today while searching my name on the site, 123peaople.ca. Surprised me, but it brought back some memories for sure.
While staying at the budget Pin Seng Hotel, off Love Lane, they made friends with another couple from Vancouver, Canada, who have been backpacking around Asia Pacific for three years.
Music deejay Travis Bonneteau, 27, and chef Jessilyn Laurel, 26, were in Penang for five days.
“We came to Penang because we knew there is an Indonesian consulate here and we need to get a visa to go to Sumatra, where I can go surfing,” said Bonneteau.
“The people here have been friendly. On the streets, we are greeted with ‘hello’ and ‘welcome’. And it is nice that everyone speaks English, we find it easier to have a conversation here than in Bangkok.”
He said the hotel operator would give suggestions daily on where to go and what to do in George Town, and was helpful with directions to places.
Laurel added that they had also been to the beaches in Batu Ferringhi and the shopping malls, and even caught the latest movie Superman Returns.
After Sumatra and Bali, the couple plan to return to Malaysia to visit Kuala Lumpur, Taman Negara, and the islands on the east coast.
They said they love travelling and meeting people, and that the whole experience has been an adventure.
“Since we started travelling, we have been back to Canada a year ago for two to three weeks, just to say ‘hi’ and ‘bye’,” they said.
“We are on a tight budget. For example, we spend RM1.80 for this place and RM2 to eat,” added Bonneteau.
They have been to Fiji, New Zealand, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand. After Indonesia and Malaysia, they plan to visit India, Nepal, Tibet, Burma, and Laurel’s hometown in the Philippines.
I have been DJing at different events, Night Clubs, Weddings , and Cruise Ships for over 10 years. This is a hobby that will always stay with me as I love music and I love to get people dancing. I do run a mobile DJ company called Good Time DJ’s that mainly plays at weddings and Christmas parties.
I play every type of music depending on the audience, my favorite music is house or any electronic music such as breakbeats or drum ‘n’ bass. Although I do play CD’s and mp3′s, I prefer to play traditional records on my turntables. There is more of a hands on feel to it, as well as a story behind each record as opposed to a CD that can break or scratch instantly.
Here is a demo I produced for a cruise line position, enjoy!
I am a member of the amazing BCIT club, BCITMA. We are a chapter of the AMA, American Marketing Associaton. Also see BCAMA.
I help out any way I can with events or advertising. We currently have a fashion show we are putting on in February, and a 3 part speakers series Connect. Create. Captivate. starting with Sue Clement, How to Network Like a Pro. I helped with the poster (left) by creating the background image for it. Click on the image to your left to view full.
The BCITMA is heading to New Orleans soon to take on the U.S. schools in a case study competition that will feature Unicef.
They are also putting on a networking event, Smoozapalooza along with AIM and The BCIT Alumni. Schmoozapalooza provides a networking opportunity for BCIT Marketing Communications students, past grads, and industry professionals. This will be an incredible event which I hope to be a part of, I just signed up for a volunteer position.
I created a marketing plan with my team as a project for my Marketing course I took in March 2009.
It was an intensive project which in the end taught us a lot about preparing a marketing plan for a CEO of a company. We also had to present in front of the class using a PowerPoint presentation that went really well.
Along with my team members Justin Martin and Jennifer Hilton, we created an e-book under the Creative Commons License using Word 2007. We posted it for sale online for $1 at Lulu.com. It is an Introduction to Facebook’s history, technology, and popular uses of this new social media technology.
For my Organizational Behaviour class I was required to write about a time when I was motivated. I described how that motivation made me feel different than the way I usually am, and how long the motivation lasted.
I am really pleased with this story, it gave me a chance to reflect on my travels to Australia. Please read and tell what you think of the story.

This was a very informative and motivating session, I learned a great deal about WordPress and blogging. Of course I have a long way to go still, but I created Jessilyn’sKitchen.com two days after the seminar for my girlfriend to showcase her cooking tips and recipes. The site still has some work but I’ve learnt a lot in the process. This e-portfolio is my 2nd wordpress blog. In the future I would like to start a blog for music and djing, incorporating my dj company Good Time DJ’s. I also want to start up a graphics and logos blog showcasing my graphic designs that I love to do on the side, which will also feature branding and marketing information.
My team and I were required to produce a commercial using PowerPoint on why we chose BCIT as part of our Business Systems course. I think it turned out really well considering it was our first movie any of us has created. Take a look!
My Team Members include:
Our team spent a lot of time putting this team charter together for our Organizational Behaviour course at BCIT. I learnt a lot about teamwork, and the different roles each person needs to contribute to be successful in any future projects.
I feel it is a great exercise to go through with any new team you may have as it lets you get to know each other, and each person’s strong areas. It also allows you to work out any kinks or potential problems before they happen.
I created a newsletter article with Word2007 as a project for my Business Systems course to give to potential employers instead of handing them a traditional resume and cover letter. Tell me what you think of the idea.
Tab stops are a very useful tool when using PowerPoint 2007 to control paragraph indents within a text box.
First, you want to make sure you are in Normal View to be able to use the ruler which is needed to execute the tab stops.
Next, click on the box next to the ruler option under the view tab.
There are already default indents setup for each of the five levels of bullets and numbered lists used in a paragraph set at every inch. These default indents and tab stops are shown on the top ruler when you click on the textbox or the text area. These are the small grey markers (lines) that appear underneath the ruler.
To change the default tab stops, drag the tab stop (grey marker) to a new position that matches the text’s position of the indent you would like. The space between all default tab stops changes proportionately. For example, if you move a default tab to one-half inch, all default tabs will be one-half inch apart. For more accurate positioning of the indent markers hold down the Ctrl key as you drag them.
To add a new tab stop click the button on the far left of the ruler to cycle through the different types of tabs, there are four in total;
Left tab – Text is aligned with its left edge on the tab stop
Centre tab- Text is centred beneath the tab stop
Right tab – Text is aligned with its right edge on the tab stop
Decimal tab – Numbers are aligned with the decimal point beneath the tab stop
Once you have selected which tab stop you would like to insert, click on the top ruler where you would like to add the tab stop. You can drag this tab stop around anytime, or add as many tab stops as you wish. When you add a tab stop, any default tab stops located to the left of the new tab stop are removed. You can press (Ctrl + Tab) to move to the next tab.
If you would like to remove a tab stop, use the mouse to drag the stop off the ruler.
