Canadian art coming to Zune Originals

Microsoft Zune

Just in time for the Canadian launch of the Zune, Microsoft has announced that it will add seven designs by six Canadian artists to its catalogue of engravings available on Zune Originals.

“The Zune Originals program is a great way to celebrate, showcase and support the creative talent we have here in Canada,” said Craig Tullett, Group Manager, Zune Canada. “Zune is about showcasing people’s individual tastes and preferences and Zune Originals is yet another way for Canadians to personalize their experience.”

Available to both Canadian and U.S. consumers, the designs will join the over 40 designs already available. Best of all, the engraving will be free to Canadians for three months, starting June 13, 2008 (the day that the Zune lands in Canada).
