I bring creativity, clarity and intelligence to branding and business cards, social posts and postcards, 16-pixel icons and 16-foot wall displays. I am adept at creating eye-catching design across all media, with particular expertise in print.
Communications have changed radically since Lind Design was founded in 1994, in Guelph, Ontario. But design principles remain the same. I apply them (and subvert them, where necessary) with an eye to the future — and a mind for change.
You are making the world a better place — through culture, social change or science. I distill big-picture concepts into deliciously digestible words and images. Let’s talk about working together. And making your message heard.
I apprenticed at Bakersmith Graphics in Toronto in the late 80s, then art directed Metropolis, a Toronto alternative weekly. In 1993, after a few years working at a design firm in Germany, I moved to Guelph, Ontario, where I still live and work. I was accredited as a Registered Graphic Designer (RGD) in 1996.
A self-taught cartoonist, I have published in Eye Weekly, This Magazine, Alternatives Journal and yahoo.ca.

I specialize in design for public and cultural institutions, book publishers, social change groups and small businesses. Clients have included:
Art Kilgour of WriteDesign excels at design for the cultural and non-profit sectors. With a studio in the same building as Lind Design and a complementary design approach, he offers deep communications and marketing experience.
Everyone takes pictures. But Trina Koster makes art from life. She distills the mood of an event, the essence of a person, the form of a product — all with intelligent staging and life-of-the-party direction.
Barking Dog Studios merges design and technology to create engaging, accessible and usable internet (and intranet) projects with full content-management capabilities. A common thread in their work is inspiring people to interact for positive change. Their talented team provides project management, strategy, design, content development, programming, database development and testing.
In 2008, I reached out to a few other local designers to meet for drinks and talk shop. Now comprising more than 40 designers, illustrators and photographers, the DoGs have helped coalesce Guelph’s design community, with monthly meetings and a public presence advocating against spec work. Members share tips and resources and sometimes collaborate across styles and disciplines.
