Canadiana: Adanac


Sue Lepard and Matt Heximer are the two designers behind British Columbia design group 10four. Earlier this year they created the iconic font, Adanac to celebrate Canada Day. Each letter and number have a corresponding icon representing aspects of Canadian culture and history. You can learn a lot about our fair country by visiting their site to get a little background info about each of their icon choices. Who knew that "the first workable anti-gravity suit was developed by a team of Canadian inventors"? Not me.

The best part, 10four is offering this font as a free download. Now you can celebrate your love of Canada (and include a mullet or two in your memos) everyday.

Have a great Tuesday!

  1. I just discovered your blog and am so excited that you blog from Montreal (and lived in Europe!) I lived in Montreal for 3 years and contemplated starting a blog while I was there because there was so much opportunity to discover independent artists, good places to eat, good live music, etc. Plus Montrealers are stylish people! I just started a design blog, myself, but, alas, I no longer live in Montreal!

    I will be checking back here often and adding you to my blogroll to stay in touch with one of my favorite cities in the world.
