The city of Montreal has chosen an unexpected canvas for displaying its identity: manhole covers.
Created by artist Luc Melanson, the design is meant to represent the city’s identity and origins. The art on the covers includes a fleur-de-lis for the city’s French roots, a rose for its English influences, a thistle for its Scottish bloodlines, and a shamrock for its Irish provenance. At the center is a white pine for the region’s Indigenous communities.
Design firm Almighty has created a new identity for Twickenham Film Studios that better relates all of the creative resources TFS provides for content creators.
From a Transform Magazine article: “The design plays on a filmic viewfinder, providing a perspective into the world of the clients’ work. In addition, five usable icons represent all the studios capabilities (studios, picture, sound, workspace, social) across digital, brand assets and on site signage.”
