Corus Entertainment

Formerly Shaw Media

Lead design for Corus Entertainment’s largest properties including GlobalTV, History & Showcase. I have art directed and designed several key initiatives including redesigns of GlobalTV.com, History.ca & ETCanada.com. Other large scale projects include the GlobalTV GO Android App, the History Vikings Interactive map & Battle Tool; and, an extended feature video plugin for use on various Shaw video platforms.

I process and solve complex design problems in an agile environment through design thinking and close collaboration with product owners, UX, content, development, analytics, and QA. Furthermore, I apply and communicate design ideas directly to developers through fluent knowledge of modern front-end techniques.

Currently both unique and authenticated users have increased 30% since the launch of the brand new app.
