"GDC Anniversary Stamp"

Category: Graphic Design
Rod Roodenburg and David Coates

Description: 2006 marked the 50th anniversary of the founding of Canada’s professional graphic design association, the GDC. To mark the occasion, Canada Post produced a commemorative stamp. Ion’s intent was to create an icon that represents the Canadian graphic design community using type and image, and the beaver seemed a natural. One of Ion’s self-imposed directions was to combine typography and image in a clever way that epitomizes what graphic designers strive for when creating a successful icon image. Like the beaver, the Canadian designer is enterprising, hardworking and in tune with its environment.
