Canadian designer Greg Durrell, filmmaker Jessica Edwards and Gary Hustwit director of design trilogy Helvetica, Objectified and Urbanized are collaborating on the first ever feature documentary on Canada’s vast design history, Design Canada. The team have launched a Kickstarter in order to raise funds for the film’s completion and release.
In a typical Canadian fashion, our design history is understated but remarkable in its own right. Back in July, an Ottawa-based designer tried to get permission from the CBC to reprint their brand standards guide, but I don’t think the campaign was successful. I hope this documentary does a little better. If you’d like to back it, you can do so at Kickstarter.
