I worked at the Art Gallery of Ontario in the Spring of 2016 for three weeks to fulfill the internship requirement of the YSDN program. I was also asked to come back for their Summer Education Program in the late summer 2016 for six weeks.
The main departments that I worked with were the Design Department, the Marketing Department and some members of the Publishing Department. The graphic designers I worked with design the signage within the gallery, gallery posters, pamphlets and signage for events. They also create the identity of temporary exhibits and the way-finding signage that accompanies these exhibits.
The below images are from some of the bigger projects that I contributed to. I was a part of the Small Wonders exhibition team where I worked with graphic designer Marilyn Bouma-Pyper to create illustrations of the miniature boxwood carvings. I was supplied with high-resolution photos of these miniature carvings and I traced the elements that the information panels highlighted. You can see how small the carvings are within the prayer beads featured in the images below. I created all the illustrations in the exhibition. This exhibition received an award from the Registered Graphic Designers Association in November 2017.
