When you think of Winnipeg, what are the iconic
symbols and experiences that come to mind? If you
had to communicate something significant about
life in Winnipeg to a foreign visitor using nothing but
symbols and icons, what would you include?
Work with your group to brainstorm, prototype and
design icons that visually communicate local civic
concepts. Remember, icons work best when they are
simple, communicate a clear concept and make use of
bold and universally recognizable forms.
The aim of this workshop is to look beyond the obvious
and clichéd symbols of Winnipeg to try and represent
the everyday, enigmatic and under-celebrated parts of
our urban experience.

spirit of the review should be constructive and move
towards design resolutions.
