Thank you all for your fantastic designs!

Shop All Contest Winners!

At final count we received nearly a hundred designs from all of you: volunteers, staff, patients, and family members of those connected with us. It took us much longer than we anticipated to review them all, and after much discussion we have chosen our winners.

Say hello to:

Together We'll Get Through It by Leen Al-Fayez

Leen Al-Fayez

My name is Leen Alfayez, a recent graduate from Ryerson University with a Bachelors in Applied Science in Nutrition and Food. Creating a design for the Gift Shop contest was an amazing process. It offered me the opportunity to reflect on the current pandemic, and the key messages I wanted to share. Obstacles are overcome by communities.
Today, the pandemic is affecting millions of Canadians differently. Those that are impoverished face social determinants of health many cannot truly understand. Having said this, I wanted to emphasize the importance of a resilient conglomerate. Like the caricatures in my design supporting one another to break down barriers with the tools at their disposal, Canadians must come together to overcome COVID-19.

Caduceus by Catherine Shih 


Stethoscope by Catherine Shih

Catherine Shih

I am a Registered Nurse working at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre with a passion for design. The inspiration for my designs comes from my experience as a healthcare worker. This led me to experiment with the concepts of Covid-19 and Sunnybrook in my sketchbook.
The design with the Caduceus uses the leaves from the Sunnybrook logo to symbolize the wings of health care breaking through the virus known as Covid-19.
The design with the Stethoscope looping a heart represents the care and compassion in which healthcare workers dedicate every single day to battle Covid-19 and other illnesses. The stethoscope is a tool used to assess patients, while acting as a bridge to the discovery and the recovery of Covid-19.

Elbow Bump by Luke Spiteri

Luke Spiteri

My name is Luke Spiteri, I am a 17-year-old Graphic Designer from Richmond Hill. I take inspiration for a lot of my work from current issues in the news (such as COVID-19) which is why I felt this challenge would be a great one to be a part of.
The elbow bump took inspiration from something my friends and I would do in school before everything shut down, as a way to take extra precautions in protecting ourselves. It was a fun little trend that made it everywhere and became a great way to promote social distancing. I feel the art style helps promote the idea as something as cool as a fist bump and can resonate with a younger audience that was conditioned to high five/fist bump all their lives. Always happy to contribute my talents to such a great cause, like supporting the staff at Sunnybrook!

Sunnybrook Frontline Hero by William Wong

William Wong

My name is Will and I have been working at the Holland Centre for the past 12 years.  I am a physiotherapist by background, but this past year I have been in an administrative role.  The little free time I have, I spend it playing with my kids.  They are at a really fun age and it is a joy just to watch them learn and grow. 

When the pandemic was declared, everyone was on heightened alert.  It seemed that everyone in the hospital had some level anxiety including myself.  Although I was not working in a role where I am interacting with patients, I was still coming into a hospital and interacting with other staff members who were having regular interactions with patients, including my wife who is an occupational therapist at Sunnybrook.  Our biggest worry was contracting COVID and then spreading it to our young kids at home.  What helped me get by the first couple of weeks was the support of the community.  When I would walk by a store and see a sign in the window showing their gratitude for all the frontline workers or when I walked through the neighborhood and heard all the banging of pots and pans, it made me proud to be a part of the Sunnybrook team.  When I created this logo, I thought it would be another good way to acknowledge and honor all the frontline workers who put themselves at risk coming into work each day by coming into work.

Thank-You Mask

Thank You Mask by Sophia Trelle

Sophia Trelle

My name is Sophia and I am a grade 7 student.  During the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been exercising, doing online school and a little bit of cooking.

I have taken this time to try new things and find new hobbies.

 Sunnybrook is important to me because when my Lola had cancer they took really good care of her. Even though she passed away, I know that they did everything and more to help her until the end.  I truly believe that Sunnybrook is one big amazing family helping one another to make our world a better place.

Like Sunnybrook, my family is multicultural and diverse.  This inspired me to say “Merci” to all the staff at Sunnybrook who are working so hard to keep the rest of us safe.

PPE & Chill by Patricia Silva-Bagot and Brandy Tanenbaum

Patricia Silva-Bagot and Brandy Tanenbaum

Brandy Tanenbaum and Patricia Silva-Bagot work together in Sunnybrook’s Centre for Injury Prevention. Brandy works as a Program Coordinator and Patricia as an Administrative Coordinator. Both have a passion for injury prevention and saving lives.

 The idea behind our design was to encourage the use of PPE in a relaxed manner. We borrowed (liberally) from the familiar “Netflix and Chill” to make people smile and see that we can get through a pandemic with a little humour and protective equipment, of course.
