The end of the design department

Yesterday was the last day for the design department.

As of today, June first, it’s gone. That’s it.

It’s been a bitter, painful, drawn-out goodbye. On the last day there was only deathly silence from all corners, a strange contrast to the exuberant “Flying Higher” of just a few days before. You’d almost think they wanted to sneak you out the back door without anyone noticing.

But I noticed. I’ve written about it a few times over the last year, and don’t have anything left to say except:

Thanks for all the wonderful, beautiful work over the years. You were a big part of the heart of the CBC and you deserve better than this.

    Damned shame, is all I have to say on the subject.

    Dream Factory, R.I.P.

    Should never have explained that green-screen effect to the accounting department.
    Now the Media Guild and Actra better hope the bean-counters don’t find out about talking avatars.
    (though it sure would be fun to have a cartoon of version of you, Ouimet, interviewing a live version of Rabinovitch)
