About Federal identity

Federal identity celebrates the history and design of Canadian institutions and national initiatives. It documents the design evolution of both public and private sector organizations, many of whom had their start as federally funded corporations.

At the centre of it all is a love of logos, corporate identity and graphic design.

About me

I have had the pleasure of working on corporate identity products for the Canadian federal government since the late 1990s. A large part of that time has been spent working in the Federal Identity Program.

The collection

Much of what is profiled on this site is part of my personal collection. Materials outside of my collection, as well as copyright holders, are noted.


This site has been developed for personal, educational and non-commercial use. It is strictly a passion project to highlight Canadian graphic design.
