canadian t-shirt series, part 1: 'evokativ' tees...

we are so lucky, not only do we have amazing clients, but amazingly talented clients.  we've recently been stocked with some clever canadian tees.  we've been big fans of evoke international design's work for years now, and as part of their creative outlet, they've come up with a collection of 'evokativ' tshirts:

what makes them so special?  they say it best...

"Our Canadian Series attempts to stir emotional pride in the history and culture of this great wide land, beyond the usual patriotic jingoism of maple leafs, mounties and moose.

It's not about Canadians 'kicking ass'. It's about downing beers in your local bar and discussing the merits of a Prime Minister putting a choke hold on a protester. It's about watching hockey and telling the story of The Habs fan who tried to steal the Stanley Cup. It's about the yodeller who travelled the railways and became a star.

It's about who we are and what we do."

each t-shirt comes with its own story. pop in and get a lesson in our Canadian history

  1. I know those two jaws..and I love these shirts. My husband and I need new ones as we've worn ours to threads.

  2. big fans of these two n'er do wells, talented chaps. My Snoozing Elephant still gets plenty of wear...reminds me, i must ask them what that one is all about......

  3. so glad everyone shares our love for these men!

    and considered design - here you go: With Republican, Richard Nixon in the White House, then Canadian Prime Minister, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, told the National Press Club in 1969 that living next to the U.S. was, "like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is affected by every twitch and grunt."

    thanks everyone!
