Hack the 6ix
Graphic Design, Illustration, Branding
When I joined Hack the 6ix in 2018, I worked in a team of 5 designers to redesign the website and visual theme for 2018. The design team decided that the website’s theme would depict isometric illustrations of the event’s sponsors, as well as Toronto’s CN Tower.
Social Media and Visual Theme
Along with doing custom illustrations for our sponsors Stdlib, Scotiabank, and Deloitte, I designed social media posts for Hack the 6ix and subsidiary events, as well as the event’s Facebook banner.
Hack the 6ix increased in hacker applications by 310% in comparison to the previous year. We received a lot of positive feedback after the event from our hackers!
Being a part of Hack the 6ix was a gratifying experience. Not only did I have a lot of fun designing the graphics and illustrations, I really enjoyed being apart of such a tight knit and passionate organization. I will be going forward as the Director of Design at Hack the 6ix 2019, and I’m excited to be leading a team of designers to build another great event.
