The Living Arts Centre is a charitable organization dedicated to being a venue for global engagement in the arts. Located in the heart of Mississauga, it has been a landmark in the community since 1997 and has since seen over 5 million visitors. With a mission to promote arts for life, the centre plays a key role in hosting performing arts, educational, community and corporate activities throughout the year.
For their 20th anniversary, the Living Arts Centre reached out to us at BTI to give the brand a new image, beginning with a new logo design. While the current logo had served the LAC well and was well loved by many, it was also clear that a new, modern, world-class image would help elevate the brand into a position for growth over the next 20 years.
The objectives for the new logo design were clear:
We started the process off with plenty of brand research, exploring other modern designs, and then sketching our rough ideas on paper. It was at this stage that we explored designs that were architecturally inspired as well as some that were more typographic.

“The new branding is bold, clear and positions the L.A.C. well as we move into the second 20 years.”

To allow the brand to flex and evolve in various uses and platforms over time, we created a dynamic logo system. The new logo can take on a variety of colours, images, textures or animations while staying consistent, to truly reflect the dynamic nature of the centre.

BTI is proud to have played a part in this historic rebranding, and look forward to seeing this logo in use in the city we call home.
