      Wow, $75K of $80K -- so close! If you reach your goal and don't plan to do any Stretch Goals -- Maybe give the 1974 CBC Graphics Manual KickStarter a little bit of a push?

      Perhaps work with them to turn that into a 3-minute or 5-minute documentary section, e.g. the Making Of the Reprint, etc. Given the CBC logo is probably a flagship logo for Design Canada.

      @Kathy Fedirchuk CWB is a beautiful logo! Once we've finished the film, you'll see that while we're not able to focus in depth on EVERY amazing Canadian logo (see the discussion of GO Transit below) there will be lots of opportunities for 'cameos'...thanks so much for your support!

      Fun project! Happy to back it. Call me a prairie girl, but it feels like the CWB is a glaring omission...

      @Eryn Corbeil We will be doing lots of fun events in Toronto, we will absolutely be in touch when the time is right!

      @Kostandinos Baltzoglou you'll receive a link and code to view the film online. We've used www.vhx.tv as our service in the past and have been very happy with them.

      Stretch goal time!!

      Curious about the digital download. Will this be delivered through Netflix or something similar?

      Hey @Jessica Edwards! Congrats on more than half way! WHOOT! Do you require any Toronto-based volunteers? If yes, I'd like to throw my hat in.

    12. Jessica Edwards 2-time creator on March 2

      @Andrew Campbell we love Aaron too! We love him even more because he LOVES Canadians! Poster size is 24” x 30”

      Huge fan of Aaron Draplin and just changed my pledge level. I was wondering if you could let me know the size of the poster he's signed? I may have just missed it, but I couldn't seem to find the dimensions. Thank you :)

      I love this project!

    15. Jessica Edwards 2-time creator on March 2

      @Eryn Corbeil Thanks tons for the support and the cheerleading! Can't wait to finish the project and share it with you.

    16. Jessica Edwards 2-time creator on March 2

      @Mark Rejhon We are also BIG fans of the Go Transit logo! And well we can't go in depth on the origin story of EVERY incredible Canadian design, you can bet the Go logo will at the very least have a cameo!

      And regarding your CBC Graphic Manual suggestion, we'll certainly reach out to them and see what's possible. As two projects seeking more attention for great Canadian design, it makes sense for us to collaborate with each other. Many thanks for your support and kind words!

    17. Jessica Edwards 2-time creator on March 2

      @Andrew Campbell. What a great idea! We'll certainly consider it! But first we've got to get this labor of love finished.

      So excited about this! Congrats on launching and can't wait to see the film. I'll second Mark on GO and Andrew on the book. All the best, I know it will be a success.

    19. Mark Rejhon on March 2

      Also, another good Canadian graphics design is the GO Transit logo, it is iconic similar to many of these logos.

      Wikipedia, Logo section of GO Transit article, "The GO Transit logo has remained largely unchanged since the agency was founded. The design was created by Gangon/Valkus, a Montreal-based design firm that was also responsible for the corporate identities of Canadian National and Hydro-Québec.[58][59] The firm's team wanted to create a unified logo using the initials of the Government of Ontario ("GO"), via two circles with a T incorporated into it. Lead designer Frank Fox described the creation of the logo as "a happy accident. More or less, we had this feeling among us that this couldn't be true. We went off trying many other solutions, but nothing else was good enough."[58]"

      Hello!

      Thank you!

      This is such a wonderful idea/campaign. So proud to be a backer.
      What are the odds you would consider putting together a book with some of the material you have gathered and created? That's another project I would back in a heartbeat!

    22. Jessica Edwards 2-time creator on March 2

      @Chris Off to an amazing start indeed! Thank you so much for your support!

    23. Jessica Edwards 2-time creator on March 2
