Don has spanned the globe, working magic with his camera to capture extraordinary people, places and events. In his own, quiet way, he has been an ambassador for the country he will always call home.
Don conceived of the Canadian Icons Project to acknowledge and celebrate Canada’s diversity, creativity, and achievements. His goal was a photographic/multimedia archive showcasing Canada’s most accomplished citizens. A not-for-profit endeavour, once complete the projects will be a national legacy for generations.
OSC was honoured to be hand-selected to contribute to the Canadian Icons creative platform. We knew the identity needed to capture the key components representing this endeavour; a collection of portrait photography and film interviews with Canada’s noteworthy icons.
OSC designed a strikingly simple icon that visually captured a moment on camera and film. This represents the significant point in time that plays an integral part in embracing and chronicling Canada’s most accomplished citizens. These design characteristics were reflected throughout all print and online communications.
