Comment

A telephone directory produced for employees of the Canadian National Railway, covering the Great Lakes Region (from Hamilton across to Toronto, and north to Sudbury and North Bay). The striking purple cover features a bold graphic representation of a telephone’s rotary dial and Allan Fleming’s iconic CN logo, together with minimal typography.

 

One assumes that the bright purple formed part of an overall color-coded system for all regions. The text pages are printed in black ink only and the bulk of the document is used to list contact numbers and location of all CN staff based in the region. Additional content features hints on ‘telephone etiquette’, brand tone-of-voice and instructions for switchboard and maintenance.
