Exactly one hour after the first day of Collide Creative Technology Conference wrapped up, video game theme music could be heard echoing from the main stage. Setting the theme of ‘leveling up your portfolio’, the music by Nerd Army welcomed attendees to the start of the third E3C + Behance Portfolio Review.
A few months ago I was sitting down with an E3C member to help them work out some ideas surrounding blogging. They were looking at starting to blog as a companion to their work as a designer and illustrator but they were stuck on one detail; where to start.
June tends to be a quiet month for us at e3c so we thought it would be best to throw a fancy dress party for the hell of it. Held at the Radisson Suites bar, ’twas a spiffy event! Boy oh boy did the creatives come out, and in their finest no less!
In the creative world, your portfolio is your resume, summarizes your ability and illustrates your knowledge of design principles (or the principles of your discipline).

100in1Day – that’s 100 actions all happening on one day: on June 6.

Interventions or urban actions are a simple, low-cost way for anybody to showcase their ideas for a better city.
Could you hear it? It was the sound of footsteps marching. Wednesday, April 15th 2015 was remembered as the day of saving Nova Scotia’s Animation, Film and TV industry.

Aside from the muscle aches from constantly shovelling the white stuff, I’m trying to be a good sport and see it as much-needed exercise. But with the flash freeze, […]
I spent the weekend in a house with 12 other artists drawing nude people in the dead of winter. It was one of the most amazing three days I have spent in a very long time, and I have the kind folks of Red Clay and fellow participants to thank for it.
It has been over 60 days since I’ve finished the Year of the Creative and it still feels just as good as day 365. In case you don’t know what that might be: I created every single day of 2014 and posted about it on a blog. It was awesome. It was exhausting. It was […]
Creative Pub Night is the revamped successor to the more traditional Drink and Draw. People hang out in a casual and social atmosphere to work, develop personal projects, or stretch their creative muscle. Here you will find shots of works in progress, studies, doodles, client projects and anything else attendees have worked on.
