In preparation of Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation, City of Toronto wanted to support this event with their own campaign. This campaign had to capture Toronto’s contribution to Canada’s history as a vibrant world class city and a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture. Working in collaboration with our colleagues at Publicis, Ove supported the City of Toronto by developing the campaign theme, tagline and visual identity system that was applied to a number of mediums, programs and event celebrations throughout the city.
