“Paul Guardia and Drew Tozer are two of the most talented graduates to come out of NSCAD’s Division of Design in the last decade. As natives of Canada’s Maritimes they represent the ingenuity and creative brilliance of the region. In the coming years, their design work will no doubt help to redefine the cultural landscape of this provincial milieu.”

“Paul and Drew helped me design an accessibility app called Safepath. They were very conscious about understanding the user experience and user interface design. Starting from scratch, they helped map out the user flow and created quality wireframes to ensure it was designed to meet the users’ needs. It was a pleasure working with them.”
