About

My Instagram account says I'm a typographer and book designer, Tarot card producer, maker of spirit boards, and the developer of wicked ideas.

Although all of that is true, I'd like to take the chance to just be a little more genuine with you.

I'm a 37 year old graphic designer, living in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. What I enjoy doing the most is reaching out into my community to find artists, writers, photographers, and other creative individuals, so that I can design books for them that showcase their unique talents. When I’m not helping others to bring their ideas to fruition, I’m usually producing my own.

I always try to have a few different projects on the go in order to force a lot of variety into my schedule. The projects I engage in are always tangible and tactile in nature, and I most enjoy working on themes of horror, kink, mystery, suspense, and the occult.

Having completed a Bachelor of Design at York University/Sheridan College, I run a freelance graphic design company called Pallor Publishing, specializing in typography, book design, and card design. I’m always looking for creative projects, new and old, that can benefit from my implementation of sensible and impeccable typography.

If you decide to become a Patreon, I'd like to use your support towards the production of my general body of work as opposed to one project in particular. However, if you prefer your donation to be used for one specific project, I will honour your request, and use your donation accordingly. Take a closer look at how I've structured my tiering system. 

You will have access to past projects that are no longer available for public purchase, process work for ongoing projects, advanced copies of projects that are near completion, and invitations to discussions on what directions I'll take on future projects.

I'm very interested in connecting with new people who share similar goals, whether or not you support me financially.


You can find me online in all the major places @pallorpublishing
I'm most active on Instagram because it's where I get the most engagement, but I make efforts to represent myself on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, to name a few. Here, you'll see me post about nearly all of my projects as I slowly build my overall brand, adhering to an aesthetic that I've been carving out for the past 10 years. 

My most ambitious and successful project to date is @vibratingtarot
A new Tarot deck that takes the legendary Rider Waite Smith deck and replaces all the people with various sex toys. I've been teaming up with major global sex toy companies, sex shops of all sizes, independent sex toy reviewers, health professionals, and of course, Tarot card readers. It is a multi-layered project that strives to foster different levels of engagement in an attempt to become a safe community space for people to interact with others under the general theme of self reflection and spiritual growth through self love and exploration of the Tarot.


In 2014, a tragic traumatic event touched down and affected my life in a profound way. The beautiful 100 year old heritage building that I was living in, and had my home office set up in, caught fire in the boiler room, and burned down. Everything was lost. I've spent the past six years in my life recovering and starting over from scratch. Your donation will support me in many more ways than you'll ever know, and I'll appreciate it for as long as I have the wherewithal to understand life in a meaningful and profound way. 


Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to find out who I am.

Your donation will make it possible for me to make New Books, Decks of Cards, Creative Fonts, and Spirit Boards.

Aesop's Fables and Typewriter Tables
Reaching out internationally, this book project engages with typewriter enthusiasts to develop a collection in which a variety of Aesops Fables are typed out by different people using their own unique typewriters.

Vibrating Tarot
A new deck of Tarot cards that uses the classic Rider Waite Smith deck and replaces all the people with dildos and vibrators.

This project is so much more than just a deck of cards. The cards are just the backbone and the sellable product behind the idea. In addition to the deck, there will be a variety of different services and products. 

There will be a colouring book that people can download and print off at home, and a free downloadable font that artists and designers can apply to their own personal projects. It will contain all the sex toy images that will appear in the deck. 

I'm teaming up with major global sex toy companies, sex shops of all sizes, independent sex toy reviewers, health professionals, and of course, Tarot card readers. It is a multi-layered project that strives to foster different levels of engagement in an attempt to become a safe community space for people to interact with others under the general theme of self reflection and spiritual growth through self love and exploration of the Tarot.

Spirit Boards
Designing and developing unique hand made spirit boards out of handsome planks of dark walnut. I've been apprenticing under professional woodworkers to improve my product, and I'm employing new techniques that include working with industry standard wood burning tools, epoxy resin pours, counter sinking objects, and inlay slabs.
