Football scarves normally show your allegiance for your team, but the half and half scarf is more like a tourist souvenir. “Real” football fans hate them, but we decided to have some fun with the concept and commemorate other conflicts.

I attended the Montreal screening of the film last week and definitely learned a few things. My design history knowledge skews heavily towards Britain and Europe, so it was pretty awesome to see Canadian efforts in the spotlight. I grew up during the period when much of this work was being scrapped in favour of the new, so I never really appreciated some of the systems that we had in place.
The film is showing around the country over the next month, including several more screenings at Cinema du Parc in Montreal. It will be released digitally in the fall.
Thanks to the film’s director, Greg Durrell, for providing me with the film’s title card for this post.
