Farewell to a Canadian Branding Icon

Don Watt, 1936 – 2009

Don passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Wednesday December 23, 2009 at age 73. He was a true leader in our industry throughout North America and made his mark on so many iconic brands like the Home Depot and Walmart. I had the pleasure of working with Don on a number of projects over the years and enjoyed the experience of sitting in meetings and watching him perform his magic. He was the kind of guy who’s personality lit up a room with wonderful stories of travels and the interesting characters he met along the way. Always smiling with an easy disposition and an engaging story to tell. He will be missed.
