Building Strong Cities - I designed a beautifully bound, hardcover book that illustrates the importance of infrastructure investment and connectivity in Canada. The book presents blog content from the project, The Ride to Connect Canada, a campaign that took the VIA Rail train across 10 cities, documenting stories from municipalities, articles on physical and digital infrastructure, and photographs of the journey across Canada. This book is an advocacy tool for the investment in the vintage physical infrastructure that connects Canadians to the new digital economy.
