We did it!!!

Posted by Jessica Edwards (Creator)

Thanks to all of you amazing people, we’ve been able to reach our initial funding goal for Design Canada! We can't believe it! But, we're not finished yet...

Any additional money we raise at this point will go right into the film. We're committed to having a predominantly Canadian soundtrack with songs from the past and present, and we've unearthed some exceptional archive footage that we'll need to license in the months to come.

But most importantly, in the Fall we'll be touring the film from coast to coast to coast––the more money we raise, the more cities we can visit. We want to bring Design Canada to as many Canadians as we can, and screen it in as many other countries as possible!

There are 10 more days to help spread the word about the project. We’re so thrilled to have been able to use Kickstarter to help build a community around this film. And we're so glad that you’re as excited as we are to bring this overlooked design history to the world. Let's keep pushing to make these final days count!

      Hey folks! I backed this project on behalf of our company Axiom Zen – we asked for the signed Olympic manual as the reward but it shows as "no longer available", just making sure that it is assigned to us?
