Branding / Design / Graphic Design
Indigenous physicians in Manitoba reflect the exceptional talent within their communities, while often facing cultural barriers, unequal access to resources, and historical inequities that have had a long lasting impact in the medical field for Indigenous peoples.
The elements for the Doctors Manitoba’s National Indigenous Peoples Day logo were selected to highlight their dedication to healthcare excellence, combining traditional wisdom with modern practices and representing values of health, family and community.
The logo symbolizes healthcare commitment to Indigenous Peoples. It features three strawberry blossoms for First Nations, Métis, and Inuit, signifying growth and future generations. The strawberry shape represents heartfelt relationships and health, with 13 seeds denoting the 13 moons. The eagle embodies love and caring, with figures representing physician-patient balance.
