Hi, it's Cai!
(my named is pronounced “Kai” like “Cairo”:)
I'm a freelance creative (illustrator/designer/art director) based just outside Toronto Canada in a lovely park & river-filled city called Guelph where I live with my partner, cat and kayak. My days are filled with drawing, scheming, designing & collaborating.  

My illustration work is represented by: Rob Scott, 3 in a Box, rob@threeinabox.com
I'm also a partner at a boutique agency (and magazine) called Toque!
WORKING WITH ME //  
I've worked with a wide range of businesses from small to Fortune 500 companies across Canada, the US and Australia. I can either work solo, be brought into a team. 
CREDENTIALS // a thinker & a do-er
My work and inspiration comes from my diverse background including a philosophy degree, some time in film school, an architecture degree, work as an Art Director for a multi-national advertising agency and I'm currently accredited by RGD Ontario as a Registered Graphic Designer...and I have a forever love of maps, drawing architecture/old buildings, paddling and beer.  My work is lively, whimsical and iconic.
