I am a Toronto-based graphic designer, photographer, product designer and artist. Design is in everything I do, from developing a new logo and identity system to creating a photographic art series to designing a new line of home décor items or fashion accessories. I use my design skills to help clients express their business and marketing goals or tell their stories in how they decorate their home and by what they wear.
Calleja Design Studio represents the addition of photography and product design to my graphic design services. It’s also the name of my home studio, where I showcase my photographs, home décor pieces and home to my fine-art photographic scarf business, Calleja Scarves.
From my earliest days in stage and lighting design I have always sought to create meaning through metaphor: to highlight a mood with the use of light; to express confidence by the use of a certain colour; to explore a theme by using a certain camera technique. Design is the purposeful manipulation of various elements to create meaning.
Very happy to be participating in the next Toronto Design Offsite Festival January 16-22, 2017.
Opening Reception: Thursday, Jan. 19, 6-9
Open Studio: Saturday, Jan. 21 and Sunday, Jan. 22, 11-6
About the Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO)
The Toronto Design Offsite Festival is the largest design festival in Canada, with over 100 events and exhibitions taking place across the city of Toronto from January 16-22, 2017.
Going into its 7th year, TO DO transforms Toronto into a hub for creativity, taking design and art out of the studio and into the urban sphere, bringing people together to celebrate contemporary culture. We provide opportunities for emerging talent, and engage the community with exceptional and accessible public programming.
