The Canadian Olympic Team

The Canadian Olympic Team began competing in the modern Olympic Games in the early 1900′s. Over a century of stories, themes, and iconography influenced this comprehensive rebrand which included brand strategy, brand architecture, marks, typography, colour, graphics, photography style, writing style, brand guidelines and launch video.
