The July Issue is Published!

July 7, 2017




The Design annual, featuring more than 100 pages of winning design work, is available now!


The cover features work by Paprika of Montreal, for Stewart Museum's recent exhibition on Expo 67.


In this issue, we mark Canada’s 150th anniversary with special content including a look back on the centennial logo and Will Novosedlik’s essay on the challenges of building a country’s brand. How should Canada position itself for the next 150 years?


We also feature a case study with Nova Scotia’s Form:Media and Ekistics Plan & Design covering two place branding projects that recognize and remember Canada’s past.


Plus you’ll find a primer on how portfolio schools can round out your creative education, and gorgeous portfolios from our Photography AACE winners. It’s all capped off with more 100 pages of winning work from the 2017 Design Awards, which showcase the best creativity in Canada and beyond.
