Julian Brown RGD and the team at ON THE CHASE! did a ‘Motion-first’ rebrand for Cineplex’s "Hello Movies" Podcast.
This dynamic identity is purpose-built to feature the content which drives the podcast—the movies themselves. All while not losing the parts of the previous logo that were ‘must-keeps’ for the client: film strip, speech bubbles and black & white. Watch the summary video here.
The name “righteous” has strong links to the surf community, which the brand sees as a significant influence in their corporate culture. A surf flag-inspired logo lead the rebrand and introduced a new colour palette as well as a surf and flavour-inspired illustration system.
Meggan Van Harten RGD and the team at Design de Plume developed infographics for Native Women’s Association of Canada on a wide range of topics for a diverse group of women.
They created an activity guide primarily for incarcerated Indigenous women, an organizational chart, a report for NWAC’s National Roundtable on the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG), and a birth control options poster.
Fidel Peña RGD and Underline worked with Art Canada Institute to design Revision and Resistance, a book that celebrates the commission and creation of mistikôsiwak.
Kent Monkman is one of the most exceptional contemporary artists working in Canada. In December 2019, the Cree artist unveiled a monumental diptych mistikôsiwak (Wooden Boat People) at the Great Hall of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The book’s cover uses a cutout that parallels the layered references in the paintings.
Vanessa Eckstein RGD and the team at Blok developed identity, packaging system and product design for Joyà.
Joyà is a new brand of plant-based functional foods that is rethinking our relationship to food and wellness.
Jason Recker RGD and the team at Carve designed the logo for AE Builders to better reflect the quality homes they build.
They originally had a logo they purchased online and were realizing that it was affecting the quality of clients they were attracting. Once the logo suite and some brand items were put together, they knew it was a good investment for their business.
Michael Zikovitz RGD combined his love of design with passion for cycling and designed art prints as a fun side project. The most recent series of prints feature the beautiful climbs of Gatineau Park, Quebec, just across the river from Ottawa—a Mecca for local cyclists.
The prints are limited edition and each one is numbered, signed and printed in Ottawa on archival-quality paper or canvass with the option of professional framing. The prints are sold through a custom web store at art.freewheeldesign.com.
