Qwords: Queer word of the month · Katrin Emery


During my time at the Algonquin Students' Association, I was able to work on an amazing project with the Pride Centre. This was to be monthly educational videos to help people understand and normalize different LGBTQ+ words. I came up with the name (a mix between "queer" and "words"), while Jordan Wiens came up with the look and feel. He also filmed all of the videos. I also animated all of the motion graphics, and acted as an assistant to Jordan while filming.

The logo for Qwords was created to be fun and playful. We wanted these videos to come off as friendly and educational, with gender-neutral colours and soft shapes.
