“Our favourite Canadian logos, preserved in the moment in time we felt they were at their best. Some of them are no longer in use, or have been updated, for better or worse.”

There are quite a few logos I wouldn’t have included — Tour of The Universe, Hamilton Tiger Cats (1990) to name a couple — but I like the site idea, and there are plenty of classic designs on show (many of which include the names of the designers and the year of creation).

I did a book in the 70s called Lost Glory about the vanishing logos of the U.S. Railroads. Am now redoing it as they have virtually vanished altogether. Would like to keep in touch.
