Ian brings an extensive design pedigree from his experience in theatre, themed attractions, and graphic design. He has worked at a creative level with some of the world's largest brands including Disney Parks, Cirque, Warner Brothers, Ferrari, Hasbro, and The Estate of Michael Jackson. His themed design experience resulted from time at attractions industry giants Thinkwell Group and as a Creative and Graphic Designer for WhiteWater West, where he created the Blue Sky creative development group.
Ian holds an award in creative innovation from Walt Disney Imagineering, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of British Columbia.
I thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with Ian on a multitude of projects, large and small. He is a versatile and gifted designer who is creative and thoughtful but efficient. His best work is when he is given a brief and license to create magic!”
- Trish Hughes, WhiteWater West
Ian is a top notch designer with natural-born sense. With such strong foundational skills and an extensive portfolio of experience spanning multiple industries, Ian balances solid design ability with a no-fear drive to try new things. The ability to balance a heavy work-load, constantly reassess priorities, and still deliver high quality materials on time, and with high attention to detail puts him above the cusp in a sea of design mediocrity. A good designer who understands the importance of balancing what they know is right with what they've been told to do is a skill that often can't be taught. Ian is equipped with professionalism, organizational mastery and one of the best senses of humour out there. A pleasure to work with.
