Why is it that Americans know so little about their northern neighbor and greatest ally? Studio 360 wants to fix the image problem Canada has here in the United States.  We asked the global branding and design firm Bruce Mau Design to come up with a visual rebranding campaign for Canada. We also got your input, starting with a six word slogan selling Canada to America.

We had a special partner in this campaign: our sister show in Canada, the CBC's Q hosted by Jian Ghomeshi. Through the month of June, Jian and his team gave the US a cultural makeover. You can check out Q’s project: www.redesigningamerica.com.
