We’ve been running the Sun Run for over 16 years.

The Vancouver Sun Run is one of OpenRoad’s longest-standing employee events: we’ve been running it since 1999! This Sunday will be our 16th year participating in the popular 10-kilometre race run.

Since the acquisition of design agency Mod7 in 2013, our T-shirt logos received a big upgrade. We revealed our first ever designer-made logo last year, which our runners wore proudly. This year is our second iteration of the logo, a minor refresh with the similar 90's retro concept. Pretty sick.

Unfortunately, the printing restrictions only allow for black and white logos for these T-shirts. So we decided to play around with it, just for fun. A bunch of us got together and jammed on a couple of colourful ideas to push its retro spin just a bit further:


And by popular demand in the studio, a rad wallpaper was born:

Enjoy. See you on the pavement this Sunday.
