On The Fly: Norman Hardie Winery

Posted on August 25th, by Kris in Blog Roll, Culinary, Design, Inspiration, Mixed bag, The Bike, Tourism. Comments Off

[flagallery gid=all skin=default name=Gallery]A small cross section of the many small, inspiring sights that caught my eye during our Ride for Africycle stay at Norman Hardie Winery. The first go in a little creative side project – shooting life as it happens, photographed and processed entirely on my iPhone, on the fly.

Norman Hardie Winery is a beautiful, small winery in Prince Edward County. Run by proprietor Norman Hardie, and his fantastic staff, NHW is producing some outstanding wines. It’s definitely worth visiting NHW for a taste, or a few bottles, of their efforts, or indulge in a wonderful artisanal pizza baked in their limestone brick oven.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



Noble, name games and other news

A bit behind, but here we go…

Nobleness. Six friends staring down 140km of uncharted territory that we call home. Six friends rolling in together hours later as one. The Noble Pursuit pitted resolve, camaraderie and skinny tires against our home and native land and we won, not that anyone was handing out prizes for this sort of thing. In all 54 cyclists tested their mettle against long strips of asphalt, winding country lanes and rugged ATV trails, came out worthy and celebrated with war stories and cold beers at Brio Gusto. Whether we cursed or cheered the day, we all knew we’d be back next year. So should you. Watch for it and in the meantime, be noble.
Name Game. A recent project I was excited to be part of was the naming for a new … Read More »



Cooking Made Picture Perfect

Posted on February 25th, by Kris in Blog Roll, Culinary, Inspiration. Comments Off

I love to cook. I’m not sure if it was borne out of a love to eat, or the other way around. Either way, the alchemy of flavour and texture, colour and form that cooking offers is entrancing. And as a designer, there’s always the visual appeal of the final step, presentation. So, many a time I’ve looked at a just-finished dish and longed to capture it, to savour long after it’s faded from my taste buds, but always came up wanting.

As a designer with a cooking problem, I have a hearty cookbook problem to go along with it. It’s unavoidable really. Each new one that came home wasn’t entirely about the recipes, but the stories they told, history and traditions passed down and so on. Or so I would tell myself. But as my … Read More »



Brandmark: Hazlewood Images

Posted on February 7th, by Kris in Blog Roll, Brand, Culinary, Design. Comments Off

Hazlewood Images started 2012 with renewed energy. Focused on budding opportunities in food and lifestyle photography, Photographer Marlon Hazlewood approached me to create a new mark for Hazlewood Images. Aiming to position his company well amongst culinary and lifestyle clientele, the mark needed to reflect the quality and detail that Marlon is known for.

MARLON

In meeting Kris, I knew immediately that his talent transcends arranging elements of design into pretty layout. His intuitive nature and understanding allowed him to design a new identity based on my personal style and vision for my business. It’s a branding that works, plain and simple. I look forward to many more collaborations with Kris bringing his design savvy to the table to complete an overall look for my commercial clients.

A key feature of the … Read More »
