Tonight, Ottawa, Ontario!!!
Posted at 12:15 PM



TONIGHT’S THE NIGHT, OTTAWA: Go to this: DDC vs. OTTAWA! Shit’s sold out, too! Been for awhile, so I’m told.

I’m at the Northern Army offices right now, sucking off their wireless. We made nice with each other, discussed current geopolitical issues facing America and Canada, and agreed that “shit gets weird” as soon as you cross the border. That’s a good thing.

I’m in the care of Steve St. Pierre, so I AM SAFE AND SOUND in a FOREIGN LAND. Take that, U.S. Consulate! See you tonight! Shit gets rolling around 6:30, so get there and let’s get to the bottom of some shit. Namely, a monster “Canada Collected” poster that we whipped out over the last week, barely got printed in Minneapolis, and shipped over to Ottawa. You need one of these. That’s what you are seeing right here, just below these words!


Not impressed? Okay, we offer more pixels. Get in a little closer, you hosers!

Okay, it’s fuckin’ time for lunch. So hungry. Let’s eat, you goddamn Canadians. See you at the big show!

My friends at Guppy Design told me about the shout out I got on this gorgeous poster. I’m truly honored, Aaron. Seriously, this is so cool!

That poster is amazing, something about it not being in a continent shape really is striking. There is a lot of work in this one!

That’s a pretty sweet Canada poster, eh? I recognize most of those probably because I’ve been to that country at least 30+ times. Nice work!

Still swooning from the experience. So many great lessons and stories, told through the lens of great-looking design, but so applicable to anyone with a creative spirit.

Regarding your poster DDC 2011…
Loved it…until I noticed you missed a canadian hockey team…Ottawa Senators. All other canadian teams are there. Hopefully this was just an oversite.

PLEASE tell me you’ll have that “EVERYTHING WE LOVE ABOUT CANADA” poster at FITC in Toronto next week. I NEED ONE.

After your stops in Ontario are done will extra posters be put up for sale on the merch page?

Love the Canadian poster. We need to get you to come to Alberta!

A wallpaper size of that Canada poster would be awesome!

Clearly I’m going to want to make a couple purchases here…
