Fire safety for children - VFRS

Often referred to as the masterpiece on the city's website, also known as the Mouse House, this illustration shows the potential fire hazards within a typical North American house. It also shows what proper safety measures should be employed (illuminated sign displaying the street number, water tank straps, etc.). There are a few PDF versions provided on the page (one coloured and one black & white) so that employees in daycare and community centres, as well as libraries can print them up and offer children the possibility of colouring while learning about fire safety.

"Dragos has proven his ability to grasp concepts quickly and intuitively, and to translate those concepts into a visual cohesive vision, whether that be for a set of icons to be incorporated into a product interface, a Flash presentation for a corporate presentation, or a Web application. I've been impressed with the consistent delivery of high-quality work, with input from me (or other third-party clients) that amounts to a few broad brush strokes. Needless to say, I would work with Dragos again in a heartbeat."

Garbage Separation

Part of a series of similar illustrations, it conveys the message that not everything we tend to throw in the garbage is - actually - garbage. In fact, most of what we throw away can be recycled or brought to specially designated collection points (for unaccepted items or green demolition).

"Dragos was quick to understand the needs of our project. In particular, he was asked to create some icons, never an easy task! The icons he produced were creative without being to far "out there". He was quick and willing to make adjustments through several feedback loops. I was happy to learn quickly that I could count on Dragos to produce good work with a fast turn around."
