This is a watercolour of a 1912 Heddon fishing lure I did for a friend.
A really dear friend of mine was getting married, and she asked me to make some macaroon badges for the children to wear at the wedding. These were some of the concepts.
When I was a student at OCAD (OCADU used to be called OCAD after it was called OCA) we were asked to design prototype mobile phones. Needless to say this wasn’t my final prototype, but I like it plenty!
I recently launched a new portfolio website that features a revised visual identity. My old portfolio website wasn’t getting me any results, and after consulting with friends, I realized that it was perhaps lacking something in the way of appearing “professional.”
My new portfolio website is minimal in its presentation, anchored by the “A” logo. There are less colour flourishes, and the whole presentation simply lets the work speak for itself. A plain white background, a smattering of black or grey text, and big images of my work allows users to focus on finding what they’d like to see, and omits anything unnecessary.
The “A” logo is a simple design, but one that - as far as I can tell - hasn’t been used anywhere else before. It can be presented by itself, or accompanied by the “Alex Gornicki” workmark. Its presentation is serious, unfussy and exudes a level of experience that I feel my old visual identity lacked.
What do you think?
This drawing is called “Ergonomics,” and I found it in an old archive of mine. Not sure what I was doing when I drew this. Maybe thinking of TTC seats? If you’re tall, this is what they feel like.
This is something I did when I was at OCADU in second year, in wood shop. The brief was to take a 1x1’ section of 3/4”-thick MDF and make a 3D sculpture from it.
I cut loopy, wiggly shapes out of it that were cut on a slant so that the tops of the lower one would meet the bottom of the upper one, and stacked the shapes successively.
It reminded me of a volcano, so I painted it to remind people of one when they saw the Fire Vase.
My girlfriend and I wanted to send a simple but loving note to her parents on Valentine’s Day, so instead of buying a card, I designed this one for us.
