Canada 150 Anniversary Mark
Happy 150th Birthday to my homeland of Canada! This mark I worked symbolizes a bursting maple leaf and is paired with the tall and proud font, Alternate Gothic.

 

 


The design of this mark still honors the Canadian maple leaf motif. I took this motif; deconstructed, simplified and created a 'bursting' maple leaf, similar to fireworks exploding. Overall the visual metaphor expresses: celebration, emotion, and feels dynamic, just as the country of Canada and it's people.
