The other day, I was looking up some information on the late Allan Fleming, who was the designer behind such Canadian icons as the CN logo (pictured), and a colleague pointed me towards the Canadian Design Resource blog. Nice find!
The blog features the work of Canadian designers and examples of Canadian-inspired design. Spend a few minutes poking around; there’s lots of fascinating stuff. For instance, I learned that Helvetica Neue ain’t the right Helvetica for the federal government’s corporate identity. I mean, who knew?
Aside: I noticed also that one of the frequent contributors to this blog is Todd Falkowsky, Creative Director at Motherbrand and a prof at OCAD. I thought I recognized the name, and a few minutes poking around the internets confirmed that my memory does indeed serve. More significantly, his students think he’s great.
