In 1986, graphic designer Georges Haroutiun filled a void in the Canadian creative sector when he published the first issue of Applied Arts — an authoritative source for professionals seeking advice, insight and, most importantly, inspiration.
For the past 30 years, Applied Arts has been the country’s leading voice on visual communications, covering key industry issues and showcasing the very best creative work, beautifully reproduced in a large-format magazine on premium stock.
This milestone year is a time to reflect on our legacy supporting the Canadian commercial arts. But it’s also a time to look forward as we expand our international reach with a tablet edition, major arts-related initiatives and an ever-growing awards program. The one thing that remains constant? Our ceaseless celebration of creativity.
Whether it’s cutting-edge technology, innovative strategy, emerging talents, or, always, the finest current work around — expect to find it all and more over the next 30 years of Applied Arts.
