Charlie Angus
NDP Leadership Campaign

Brand & Marketing.

I did the work on the main brand, basic messaging, tagline, wordmarks, digital launch assets and the T-Shirts, buttons, handbills, pop-ups, donation and pledge forms for Charlie Angus’s NDP leadership campaign.

And, I wrote an ad that I wanted to make for the campaign.

The work

1920×1080 HD Creative & art direction, conceptualization, print, digital swag and signage designs.

The world is a less certain these days…

…and here at home we have our own problems.
Yet our leaders seem unwilling or uncaring to really deal with them.

Through out our history, Canadians have come together to make Canada more fair country for our families and our neighbours.

And we stood together against intolerance and injustice.

V/O Charlie Angus:

It was hard work. But it has been worth it.
And there is still more to do.

Cut to: Powerful, images and video of current day Canadian communities and people, outlining the promise of a better future.

V/O Charlie Angus:

Today our party today must rise to the hopes and expectations of those that came before us and those who believe that better is possible.

We must renew our faith in our movement, in our communities and in our neighbours.

We must continue the fight for a fairer, more inclusive society.

A society where no one is left behind.

Cut to: Powerful, montage of film, images and video current and past NDP leaders and luminaries.

V/O Charlie Angus:

This won’t be easy. But New Democrats don’t shy away from working of a better tomorrow for everyone.
