What Defines Canada? Uniquely-Canadian Poster to Benefit Canadian Designers

GDC Foundation's 2015 fundraiser offers Designer-y draw prizes

What defines Canada? What unifies us? Is it respect? Equality? Empathy? What makes this country, well, this country? What if we can visualize that uniqueness?

What if it takes shape as a 19” x 25” poster, designed and hand screened by one of Canada’s most respected and hardworking shops?

What if it inspires you to say “I must have it”?

What if it’s all that *and* a way to support the GDC Foundation?

Craig Medwyduk CGD and Jacqueline Germin CGD of Odelay Design (Saskatoon, SK) are designing and screen printing a limited run, multi-coloured edition of 50 posters. All proceeds from the sale of these once-and-they’re-gone posters will be generously donated to the GDC Foundation as part of its 2015 fundraising efforts to help grow a fund to support design research, scholarships for students and professionals, and a benevolent fund to offer short-term financial assistance to designers experiencing a career-challenging difficulty.

To get us all even more excited about the project, Odelay is providing behind-the-scenes glimpses of how the poster develops and grows through their design process, as they work toward completion of the work. Photos, sketches and more are shared via GDC Foundation’s social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

The poster was revealed today! See: www.gdc.net/article/2015/12/21/3655
