Creative Mornings Lettering

The team at Creative Mornings Ottawa approached me to create a simple lettering piece featuring their hashtag Ottawa is Creative to spread the word and create a sense of belonging in the community.


Creative Mornings Ottawa


April 2019




The team decided to create two event posters. The first design features the desert within the silhouette of the poet, keeping in mind the warm and rugged style. The second focuses on an important area for the poet: the bench he would frequent every morning during his journey.

Ottawa is Creative!

The process was very quick! When I presented the first iteration to the team, they immediately decided to go forward with the design. I went ahead and created the vector version!

Good Morning

Team team printed the design on mugs, tote bags and pins! They are sold at events and online to raise funds for Creative Mornings!

I am still very honoured every time I see someone drink coffee out of one of these mugs! It's awesome to be part of an amazing community of creatives.
