Code Souvenir Montréal: Souvenir and gift catalogue 2014–2015 

Montréal, Canada

Bureau du design - Ville de Montréal

WANTED: OBJECTS SIGNED “MONTRÉAL, UNESCO CITY OF DESIGN”

Montréal, Canada, 17-12-2013 -  The Ville de Montréal’s Bureau du design has issued a call for proposals from Montréal designer-producers and distributors for distinctive souvenir gift items, to be selected for inclusion in the third edition of the CODE SOUVENIR MONTRÉAL catalogue, which will be published in May 2014. The catalogue promotes creations by Montréal-based designers and facilitates purchases of value-added corporate gifts by public- and private-sector institutional buyers.

The souvenir items are given to national and international guests on their visits to Montréal, or distributed during trade missions and similar trips abroad. These mementoes are emblematic of Montréal, evoking the city in visitors’ minds. They leave a representative and recognizable imprint of the city and its identity. They are fun, original, high-quality objects worthy of a City of Design.

“For the past two years, the catalogue has been a way for us to discover new creators, and we’ve placed several gift orders since it was first published. I’ve made a commitment to buying ‘designed-in-Montréal’ products, and I promote them to the people in my network.” — Lynn Gagnon, Director of Hospitality and Protocol, Ville de Montréal

“We are constantly on the lookout for gift items that showcase Montréal’s creative talents and also meet our eco-responsibility criteria. Since we do business with international clients, we help Montréal creativity become known far and wide, beyond borders, and that’s something we’re quite proud of!” — Annie Bourassa, Senior Marketing and Communications Advisor, Palais des congrès de Montréal

Showcasing Montréal’s creative talents
Through this initiative, several local creators enjoy outstanding visibility with Montréal cultural institutions, universities and corporations as well as representatives of international organizations. In May 2013, more than 100 gift items by 27 designer-producers were showcased at a pop-up store set up during the C2-MTL international convention, the Montréal International Design Show (SIDIM) and the Haut+Fort design fair.
“The CODE SOUVENIR MONTRÉAL catalogue is one of our top sales and promotional tools. It prompts a specific kind of attention among potential buyers, both here at home and internationally, and helps raise our profile among institutions and corporations.” — Diane Parenteau and Arto Dokouzian, designers, Couple d’idées

Selection process
Gift items must be well made, lightweight, easy to carry in a suitcase, and compliant with customs regulations. They should preferably be unisex, and may include decorative or utilitarian items as well as fashion accessories.

About the Bureau du design
Structured around improving the design of the city and asserting Montréal’s status as a UNESCO City of Design, the Bureau du design’s mandate is to support public commissions in design while developing the market for and promoting the talents of Montréal-based designers and architects. The UNESCO Creative Cities Network, of which Montréal is a member, comprises 41 cities in 23 countries and enables creative practitioners in member cities to share experiences, best practices and knowledge on an international scale.

Launched in the wake of the CODE POSTER international competition, the CODE SOUVENIR MONTRÉAL catalogue is the second joint activity of the City of Design members of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. CODE is an idea from Raban Ruddigkeit of the Berlin agency ® ruddigkeit corporate ideas. CODE is an acronym for
City Of DEsign and marks a city’s particular character (“DNA”).
