i absolutely love that the college purchased and restored an old theatre, but kept every element true to its original 1940s style. from the Daily Grommet blog: “The school has a very sophisticated and controlled visual identity in most communications, but it breaks all the rules when it comes to exterior building signage—using whatever signage style is appropriate to the period of the building.”
can we see more of this in toronto, please? this city’s quickly losing all its old theatres. yes, the Bloor West Chapters (which was once the Runnymede Theatre) is still somewhat authentic inside, but outside? that facade just looks like a big box shop.
