Canadian Design Resource is a project that seeks to document classic and original Canadian design work by bringing it to the web. The CDR doesn’t restrict itself to Graphic Design, but also features fashion artifacts, sporting gear and product packaging, just to name a few categories. Our favourites are the Expo 67 features (an incredibly modern design look for the 60s), and the longstanding Canadian classic, the Canada wordmark. (PS: Did you know that Canada’s logo is one of the featured examples of a wordmark for Wikipedia’s definition?)
As you can clearly see for yourself, the Canadian Design Resource is not only helping bring signature Canadian design ephemera to light, but is also helping bring out the brilliance of the Canadian design industry. Designed by Spacecadet Design and operated by Motherbrand, the CDR is one of our favourite sites to check out regularly.
