Michael George Haddad is a designer in Ottawa, ON, Canada.
A Self-promotional project. I wanted to share a dose of Canadian patriotism and pay homage to design hero Allan Fleming, as well as Americans Saul Bass and Paul Rand.
Inspired by several Canadian provinces re-branding and the loss of some classic logos, I set out to create an icon for each province and territory. I put a set of constraints on myself: the logos would mimic the style of modern corporate logos from the 1950s and 60s, and would use only black. Each mark would contain symbols and visual winks recognizable to Canadians.
