Signs of the Time

I am a sucker for good branding and creative marketing, and while walking around downtown, my attention was grabbed by the signage outside the Tribute Communities Centre (formerly, GM Centre). This hockey rink is used by the Oshawa Generals (when they are in season) and by community groups for practice and play, and the clever signage, clarifying which masks are acceptable for entry was humorous and ‘on brand’ for the site and how the space is typically used.
