Canadian Logos, Preserved


Sat, Apr 11th, 2015 11:00 by capnasty NEWS

On the Northern Army Preservation Society of Canada website, by-gone logos from banks, hockey teams, even railways. An unusual heritage museum of Canadian design.

We built upon the bold, no-bullshit European aesthetic and made it our own. Clean, tasteful design where it isn’t even required – the numbering on the sides of our trains; signs for national parks; our government letterhead. Even our wheat. Wheat doesn’t need good design, does it? We did it anyway, because it’s part of our culture.

On this site, you’ll find our favourite Canadian logos, preserved in the moment in time we felt they were at their best. Some of them are no longer in use, or have been updated, for better or worse.
