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.
