Strong & Free – A Canadian brand designed from the heart

Strong & Free – A Canadian brand designed from the heart.

Denise Dow grew up as the daughter of a member of the Canadian Coast Guard, so she has always been proud of the Maple Leaf flag. But she wanted to take that passion further. In 2006, she designed her own plaque, drawing the design from actual maple leaves she picked off of the tree in her backyard and carving the wood in her own workshop.

Dow and her partner Patricia Gallagher travelled to the 2010 Olympics, taking fresh inspiration from Canadian athletes’ performances. They have since been selling their products online and wholesale to retailers all across Canada from their home in Saint John, NB. Now, Strong & Free design has become an iconic Canadian brand, adorning a whole line of products.

Dow and Gallagher license their designs carefully, making sure products are made in Canada or worked in Canada. As a Canadian brand since 1945, London Drugs was a natural fit, with the London Drugs Photo Lab team sourcing and printing quality products using the Strong & Free branded logos.
