Knowledge, Learning, Community

After an article showing proposed logos for Canada's 150th birthday dismayed graphic artists from coast to coast to coast, Ibraheem Youssef and Dave Watson launched a website with contributions from patriotic professionals across the country. These designs are all better than the (semi-)official designs being tested. I quite like especially Greg Mühlböck's logo (pictured), as well as David Bromley's and Lee Wilson's. Also: Lionel Gadoury, President of the Association of Registered Graphic Designers posted an article about the Project, read it here. The project leaders in turn responded with an open letter, which you can read here. (This whole discussion, of course, has everything to do with online learning.)
