Design Canada
A documentary film





Design Canada is the first documentary chronicling the history of Canadian graphic design and how it shaped a nation and its people.

Following a sold-out world premiere in Toronto at the Hot Docs theatre, the film toured over 50 cities around the globe including New York, Los Angeles, Montréal, Moscow and Zurich.

Available now on iTunes or Vimeo worldwide.












In November 2018, Durrell gave a talk at TEDx SFU about building a national identity through design.






Design Canada was released on digital January 2019 and debuted at #1 in the documentary genre on iTunes. The film will make its broadcast television debut on the CBC Documentary Channel in April 2019. 

Available now on iTunes or Vimeo worldwide.
