Design Canada

"Takes a look at the history of modernist corporate design and how Canadians have defined small parts of their national identity through the most iconic and eye catching creations of some of the country’s best visual artists." - The Gate

Art, Design & Architecture. Co-presented by Collective Form.

Design Canada explores what defines a national identity. Is it an anthem, flag, logo or icon? How do these elements shape who we are? In the 60s and 70s, these questions were answered by an innovative group of Canadian designers who used design to unify the nation. Directed by graphic designer Greg Durrell, the film follows the transformation of a nation from a colonial outpost to a vibrant and multicultural society.
