Design. Art Direction. Packaging. Identity.
Visuals continue to be so vital to how a message or idea is able to propel forward right now and over time. With that in mind multidisciplinary Shalom Toy started working as Cosmic Cavern in 2015 where her primary goal was to create cognizant work united by thoughtfully sharpened design. Working with artists and individuals within the music stream has always been a soft spot.
Shalom's visual work for Silvering, her own music project, was nominated for a 2019 Western Canadian Music Award in the design category and she has had the opportunity to create work for artists including Julien Baker, Raghav, Jocelyn Alice, Chanele McGuinness and Hello Moth.
Cosmic as an illustrative design cohesion has grown to include information design, wire framing, motion graphics, UX/app design, typography, advertising, product design, magazine layout, colour grading, video direction and production, brand building, visual identity development and illustration with colour theory awareness throughout.
Shalom received her bachelor of graphic design degree from the Alberta University of the Arts in 2017 (previously Alberta College of Art & Design) and was the Visual and Design Coordinator at CJSW Radio 90.9FM for the year 2019. Since being on air radio trained through working with CJSW, she looks forward to a continued interest in radio programming.
