One of the first projects in the Electronic Publishing program at Mount Royal, assigned in the Introduction to Digital Layouts class. The requirements for the logo were that it had to feature the name of any event from the 20th century, be entirely typographic, only grayscale could be used and it had to convey the subject accurately. I chose Woodstock—a live music festival that took place in 1969. Woodstock has been remembered as a climactic event leading into the peace movement of the 1970s. It was attended by half a million people from all walks of life and throughout North America. Designed using Adobe Illustrator CS3.

Photo of all the full-time Recreation staff. There were 23 employees, however four of them were unable to attend the first scheduled photoshoot so an additional photoshoot was organized. In the second shoot the employees were positioned to fill gaps in the original picture. A considerable amount of Adobe Photoshop CS4 was needed to cut and paste the missing people into the first photo. Additional processing was also necessary to create shadows on the ground, and to match the colours and resolution. The photo was made into a 20"x24" print with the employee's names down the side, then framed and hung up in the department's reception area.
