Leo Burnett Toronto

Inside Canada’s largest and most iconic art institution, the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) lives a collection of over 13 million artifacts from the past 4.2 billion years. Despite the breadth and fascination of the history that existed within the museum’s walls, it wasn’t enough to appeal to a more diverse and younger audience. Through a new visual identity and system named The Immortal Timeline, the ROM underwent a rebrand that helped transform the museum into a dynamic new presence for the 21st century.
