and how she creates graphics for film & TV
Stephanie joined the DGC in late 2014 and has been designing graphics for film and television productions ever since.* A Toronto native, she is a film school graduate and has studied visual art. Although she most often utilizes her digital design skills in her work (Illustrator and Photoshop), she has also had the pleasure of employing her fine art skills to create hand drawings, paintings, and even calligraphy.
Stephanie believes research to be another one of her strengths. According to her, finding the right references can lead to inspired, appropriate, and believably realistic looking graphics, and when applicable, up-to-the-minute historically accurate ones. She takes pride in immersing herself in the world of visual style a film or design project inhabits, and channeling those styles in her designs.
Stephanie would like to become a Production Designer, but finds a lot of satisfaction in designing graphics, and really wouldn’t object to continuing in her present line of work for a little while, or a longer while. She is passionate about both film and graphic design, and is happiest spending her days surrounded by likeminded creative people.
*Stephanie does not have a tendency to talk about herself in the third person, but was advised that writing her biography in this style was the professional way to go.
