Canada Post Community Foundation Stamp Launches

September 20, 2022

The studios design for the 2022 Canada Post Community Foundation stamp has launched! The stamp serves as an annual fundraiser for the Canada Post Community Foundation which supports over 100 non-profit children and youth programs and organizations across Canada. The stamp design is selected by Canadian Post frontline employees and marks the second time the studio’s work was selected for for the stamp.

The 2022 stamp features a hand made paper craft illustration by our Senior Designer, Joanna Todd, featuring a treehouse motif. Treehouses were selected due to the magic and imagination they inspire and the way they form a setting for make-believe play. Making spaces for children to learn, play and grow is exactly what the Community Foundation is for, making treehouses the perfect subject for the illustration.

New look, same great taste!

It’s been 5 years in the making, but our new website launched today and we couldn’t be more excited. The studio has grown so much in the last few years — a little in size, but mostly in the breadth of projects and clients we’ve taken on — and we haven’t had time to let our online presence catch up with us. This stretch of working from home has been a small fortune in that it allowed us some extra time to get our work up and refresh our own brand identity.

Just like with many of our clients, our old website no longer properly represented the studio’s capabilities, so it was due for a major update. What was once a one-person design firm, has evolved into a team, each bringing a specific set of specialized abilities to the table.

Collaborating with Photographer Maya Visnyei and Prop Stylist Catherine Doherty, we’re thrilled to be able to share the amazing images we created with them to showcase some of our portfolio work.

Our redesigned website now captures the range of projects we’ve produced over the last few years. We’ve had many great adventures with our past clients and look forward to the new opportunities our revamped website will bring.

Like many others, our team had to transition to working from home during the lockdown in response to Covid-19. Holding daily morning one-on-ones over video chat started to have a bit of a Groundhog Day feel to it, and we still marvel at how long it’s been since some of us have been at our desks in the studio.

As a fellow small business, we know the strain the pandemic has had on our smaller clients. We’re consistently impressed with the ingenuity and resilience our clients have shown, and we continue to support them the best we can.

Now that fall is here, half the team is back in social distancing form in the studio, and we hope to get back to some semblance of what life was like before. We missed out on the studio concert this year, but hope that by September 2021, we might be able to catch that Lady Gaga show after all.
