Design Canada: Kelowna Premiere

Don't miss this documentary on Canada's golden age of design, followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Greg Durrell

GDC BC presents a Design Canada Screening in Kelowna with Filmmaker Greg Durrell

Burton Kramer. Lorne Perry. Heather Cooper. Fritz Gottshalk and Stuart Ash. They’re not exactly household names, but these masters are responsible for some of Canada’s most iconic designs, including the logos for the CBC, CN Rail, Roots and the Royal Bank. Emblems familiar to every Canadian from coast to coast to coast, young and old alike.

In 2012, Design Canada began with a genuine curiosity about where the designs and symbols of Canada originated from. Director (and graphic designer) Greg Durrell began shooting the film on a Canon 7D. A year later, Greg met Jessica Edwards, a Canadian filmmaker living in Brooklyn and Gary Hustwit. The team spent 5 years crafting the Design Canada story.

A film by Greg Durrell. Produced by Jessica Edwards. Executive Producer Garry Huswit.
