CFHA Christmas Party PosterCFHA IT Security Poster

During my time working as a Web Master / Designer for the Government of Canada, I sometimes needed to provide print designs for posters and other internal communications materials. I have noticed that there are certain design challenges that arise when designing bilingual documents. For example, the French text translations are usually longer then the english, but making the French text smaller to compensate is not a valid solution; his would put an emphasis on the French and the two languages must appear equal on all Govnerment documents. Seen above are two examples of some simple solutions to designing bilingual posters.

The tree and snow graphics in the christmas poster I created after reading a few Photoshop and Illustrator tutorials for creating Christmas graphics. The photo of the USB stick and keychain I took at work for fun instead of finding a source image.
