As part of a central university advancement team, helped increase the quantity and quality of applications to Ryerson’s undergraduate and graduate programs.

  • Wrote and oversaw the creative development and production of Ryerson’s recruitment collateral including broadsheets, brochures, fact sheets, posters, view books, and the web.

  • Introduced a more empathetic and effective communications style by understanding and speaking directly to prospective students’ dreams and aspirations; and by showcasing multiple examples of the university’s unique and competitive offerings that support career and personal development goals.
  • Working with the creative team, shifted their approach away from an often too-literal and non-differentiated style of representation (e.g., classroom, lab, and student photos) to more conceptually driven and teen-friendly design solutions.
