Design Workshop

Heya! I'm Lucas, a Toronto-based designer with a love for research, information systems, and interaction. I've spent the last four years at YSDN working with my peers to break down complex subjects into easy-to-follow user experiences, information designs, and products.

About my object

At heart, I'm an urbanist, and will seize on any opportunity to talk about urban design and policy. I love exploring on my bicycle, and wanted to reflect that passion in my object.

The Brewery Market


The Brewery Market is my rebrand of a family-friendly beer festival in Ottawa. Inspired by abstract sidewalk chalk art, the identity refocuses the festival’s visual identity around its playfulness, all-ages and community-
oriented energy, reflecting both the park itself and the families who attend.

Faux Parks


Faux Parks is a semester-long research and design project focused on breaking down a complex topic into visually rich storytelling.I developed a thorough research document, a 25-page publication and a web prototype looking at the curious nature of publicly accessible private spaces in the City of Toronto.
