Winston E. Dalip Jr.

Graphic Designer &
Creative Consultant

Let’s not start talking about design.

Let’s start talking about YOU.

Listening to you. Learning about you. Understanding you.

Design is an evolving process centered around identifying your uniqueness.


 
 
… crafting innovative design solutions for Collins Barrow, Baker Tilly International, Walmart, Young Drivers of Canada, Manulife Financial, Staples Business Depot, Fidelity Investments and Sears Canada.
 


 
 
… InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, PowerPoint, Word and Excel –
I know the tools of my trade.
 


 
 
… being not only a graphic designer but a creative entity relishing in the expression of my creativity through any medium –

•  visual (fine art & design)
•  tech (web design & iconography)
•  fashion (designing & wardrobe consultations)
•  wine (pairings & tastings)
•  food (cooking, entertaining, dining out & event advice)
•  interior decorating (designing & consultations)
•  music (minor dabbling in remixing)



 
 
… keeping a pulse on the latest design trends allows me to stay current, relevant and inspired.


 

Expressing what makes you, you – that’s just what I do.
