I’ve been a graphic designer for 15 years now, but I have been in multimedia since the early nineties, working with everything from addressable slide projectors to non-linear editing programs. With such a diverse background, I am able to help clients with everything from print design and web pages to product launches and videos. In the last few years I have specialized in touch-screen kiosk design, creating interfaces for high-traffic airline, hotel and retail spaces.

My work has been profiled in Chatelaine, Wallpaper and Forbes magazines and I also set the original curriculum and taught Advanced Digital Special Effects at Sheridan College in Oakville.

In the last year I have returned to my creative roots in film at the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) and Raindance Canada , I have a short film in post-production and 3 features in development – one of which will be available as a graphic novel by the end of 2012 – featuring the artwork of  Rina Chan.
I am currently freelance, working mostly in web design. I can be reached at: cherelle@bull-dogpictures.com Resume
