Describe the brief from the client
Established in 1998, Canada’s Walk of Fame aims to educate, inform, and inspire through the permanent celebration of achievements in Canadian music, sport, film and television as well as the literary, visual and performing arts, and science and innovation.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The challenge was to create a new logo and visual language that best reflected the new positioning of CWOF: the organisation that fuels national pride by celebrating the outstanding achievements of Canadian cultural icons.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The concept behind the logo (five overlapping maple leaves forming a singular star) is inspired by the bond of Canadian pride that we all share.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
Although just recently launched, the feedback the clients has received from the rebrand has been incredible. Walk of Fame inductees such as Jim Carrey and James Cameron have personally called the clients to congratulate them on taking the brand to the next level.
