Cori Creed Wildflower Honey

Designed by Saint Bernadine Mission Communications Inc. | Country: Canada

“Two passions collided to create Cori Creed’s Wildflower Honey. Acclaimed West Coast landscape artist Cori Creed embraced a family tradition when she introduced bees to her flower garden – which can be admired from her studio window. To celebrate her first harvest, Cori wanted to create a limited edition package that she could share with friends, family, and supporters.

Designed by St. Bernadine, the packaging drew inspiration from Cori’s first passion – painting. Using paint tubes, St. Bernadine created a unique and simple package that was perfect for the artist. Custom lettering was created to emphasize this personalized, one-of-a-kind honey, while subtle flourishes and intricate details reflected Cori’s dedication to both her art and her garden. A die-cut label was wrapped around each tube, noting the individual flowers that helped to create the honey, along with a personal message from Cori.”

Farnham Ale & Lager Brewery

Designed by lg2boutique | Country: Canada

“The Farnham Ale & Lager Brewery is a new company that has just made a splash in the world of Quebec Beers. The brewer, located in the village of the same name, called on lg2boutique to design a brand platform that reflected its product, develop a graphic identity, design packaging and the total identity of the platform.

The branding of Farnham Ale & Lager positions this new Quebec brewer as an innovative brand that stands out in its category because of its taste and because of its look.

All of the graphic elements were chosen to highlight the beer’s origin, which was this Eastern Townships railway town. The four flavours stand out with their strong colour codes, their degrees of bitterness are indicated by 12, 27, 33 and 64, highlighted numbers, and the diagonal cross symbolizes a railway crossing.

The platform contains packaging, promotional clothing, caps, glasses and coasters.”

Spirit Tree

Designed by TAXI | Country: Canada

“Challenge: the challenge for this assignment was to take a small town Mom-and Pop cidery and transform it into a world-class contender within a wildly competitive beverage landscape.

Approach: due to the large volume of products Spirit Tree sells, we knew that a simple, yet bold design system was needed to differentiate each of the products. Spirit Tree has always been known as an apple cidery. With this in mind, we created a logo and visual language using modern-looking apple tree branches as the main design element. These branches were used as a pattern on everything from the packaging, corporate stationery, shopping bag and even as a design element within the store.”

Canada’s spy agency reportedly tracked travelers who used free airport WiFi service

airport crop 520x520 Canadas spy agency reportedly tracked travelers who used free airport WiFi serviceA new NSA leak alleges that the US intelligence agency worked with its counterpart in Canada (CSEC) to test a system that tracked travelers who passed through one of Canada’s “major” airports, CBC News reports.

Information presented to the news agency shows that visitors who logged into the free WiFi service provided at an undisclosed Canadian airport could be tracked “for days” after they moved on. CBC News reports that the CSEC/NSA could pick up travelers when their devices were logged into other WiFi networks across Canada and at US airports.

The documents suggest that the system was trialed by the NSA and the CSEC with a view to scaling it into other countries — though there is no mention of data captured or tangible results. The head of the CSEC last year assured Canadians that it has never targeted its citizens via domestic or international spying programs.

See The Eerie Beauty Of Clothing Frozen In Ice

This is not your average ice sculpture.

Now that we're all thawed out after the Polar Vortex, we can appreciate the chilling beauty of these garments frozen in blocks of ice. Artist Nicole Dextras is an ice sculptor--but instead of producing swans for weddings or ice luges for frat houses, she uses ice to create a tribute to her Canadian roots.

Dextras' Ice Shifts project includes two series so far: Castaways, set in a frozen amusement park on Toronto Island, and Pharos, created for the Winterlude Festival in Ottawa. Both bring to mind images of fossils, or Pompeii, but according to Dextras they are designed to tell stories about the area's recreational history.
