Pivotal Figure in Canadian Graphic Design

"A pivotal figure in Canadian graphic design" (Azure magazine), Theo Dimson was born in London, Ontario. During a 50-year career, he has designed commemorative stamps for Canada Post, space shuttle posters for Imax and titles for the Norman Jewison films Agnes of God and Moonstruck. Oxford published his book on Canadian posters, and he has won numerous awards and recognition around the world. Dimson is a member of the prestigious Alliance Graphique Internationale, and he’s the only graphic artist to have held a one-man show at the Royal Ontario Museum (1993-94). Recently he traveled to Tsinghua University in Beijing to address an international symposium on the relationship between the Arts and Sciences."
