Faculty of Education researchers at the University of Ottawa created a program to promote learning through play at schools across Canada. Q30 designed the Canadian Playful Schools Network (CPSN) brand and website to support their learning pillars of “green, screen, machine and everything in between”, to be approachable, dynamic and fully bilingual. Colourful, engaging and flexible, the brand embodied the energy of the program and its participants.

Working with Q30 Design has been an incredible experience for our team. Faced with an incredibly challenging timeline, Q30 delivered a product and experience above and beyond our wildest expectations. We are so impressed with how the team worked so closely with us and were able to meet all our network’s bilingual, accessible and inclusion needs.
