From Victoria to Toronto, Calgary to Montreal, there is always the same tacky ‘Canadian’ tourist gifts. It doesn’t matter where you are, there always seems to be someone buying a poorly designed shirt, bags, or whatever! This inspired me to try and create something a bit more unique and a graphic that would capture the new, modern Canada I see everywhere else.
Canada has an amazing history, and one particular aspect that jumped out at me was the Canadian and Provincial Coat of Arms. Each one tells a different story about its region and represents a special part of the country. The choice of animals and shield are very unique, but the part I found most interesting was the Latin script below and how it related to the individual coat of arms.
I wanted to take this project one step further… I sourced out some great manufacturers that produce all of their product in Canada, making this series 100% Canadian.
All shirts can be purchased on the Done Creative online store.
