The Design Council of Saskatchewan is comprised of six professional design associations. Hosting Design Week is a major initiative of the Council. It is an open invitation to the public to learn about the different areas of design through a speaker series. The Council also recognizes design excellence in Saskatchewan through the Premier’s Awards of Excellence in Design which is held in conjunction with Design Week.
The Council debuted a new logo in 2013 and I used the new colours as a jumping off point for the colour scheme of the event. The Design Week logo and DW13 mark were developed with geometric shapes to reference the shapes within the new DSC logo. One of the most exciting things about working on Design Week was the chance to design a custom award for the Premier’s Awards of Excellence. It was created out of solid aluminium water jet cut and machined out by Fabricating Arts.
