Halloween 1997

Back in the day, one Halloween Eve, the Reactorites were at the launch of Canada Post’s Halloween 1997 stamps. Louis Fishauf was the series art director and designer. Jamie Bennett, Simon Ng, Tom Hunt and Blair Drawson created art for the Werewolf, the Goblin, the Ghost and Dracula. City TV attended the launch of The Haunted Stamp collection at Reactor’s studio and featured an interview with Louis and a representative from Canada Post. The project included the four stamps, a first day cover featuring glow-in-the-dark illustrations by Jamie Bennett, and Haunted House commemorative packaging.

Clayton Hanmer, Reactor and Marshall Homes

Over the years, working with Paul Grissom of Grissom and Friends as creative director, and Steve Dunk as designer, the Reactor artists have created a lot of illustrations for Craig Marshall’s real estate developments. Here is some of Clayton Hanmer’s work on the current Marshall Homes web site. In the builder’s history section of the site, Steve decided to use a technique called parallel scrolling to combine photographs of the homes with illustrations to highlight the various neighbourhoods that Marshall Homes has built.

Kristine Schmitt and her Special Powers

Steve Dunk hand-lettered and printed items for Toronto based musician Kristine Schmitt, and her band the Special Powers. Business cards, a demo disc cover, small posters and handbills were used for promotion at this year’s Folk Music Ontario Conference. The conference is the key event for Ontario’s folk, roots, and traditional music community.

Steve also designed artwork for a stamp that was used to label the disks, and an ad promoting show times for the conference program.

Covers and cards letterpress printed with the help of Lunar Caustic Press.
