Fixed up some of the elements and added a few that were missing.
I'm thinking stickers and t-shirts. Maybe an embroidered patch...
**EDIT:** Didn't want to post these revisions to dribbble, so here's the updated mark. What do you think?

This makes me want to move to Canada... almost.
Canada is a real place? I thought it was like Narnia or the North Pole or something.
Narnia isn't real?
The type is great, but I think that leaf needs a little love.
Love it! Though I think maybe the top of the leaf needs to be a "W" shape like the sides, rather than the inverted "V", to properly represent the maple leaf.
Yeah I think the lower text now outshines the leaf, so you need to make the leaf stronger. In v1, it was all understated so it worked (I prefer the small type in v1 personally, as here the focus is on Pixel)
@Daniel: That cuts deep, man.
@Collin: Oh, this is awkward...
@Matthew + @Evan: Good points, guys. I've had some people make the same comments to me. Thanks!
@Matt: Interesting. I wasn't satisfied with the vertical flow of the Pixel Collective text in the original (@fuzzco helped point that out). I'll play around with some options.
I totally dig this leaf > Of course you could also play around with something like THIS ;)
@Michael: Did you make that? It looks fantastic! I tried making a leaf similar to that using mainly geometric shapes but it didn't work out.
@Michael: ...are you interested in becoming an adopted Canadian? Haha.
I can see your reasoning there, I don't think exaggerating Pixel is the best fix though.

Woah. Love it.
@Matt: I'll think of something!
@Pete: You seem surprised :P (thanks dude)
@Tyler, I am. Usually your work is awful but I really dig this one. You could even be a designer one day.
@Tyler i.e. thinking stickers and t-shirts ... I like how you think ;)
Looking even better!
I wanna join! :-) This is lookin' very tasty!
@Jackson: Thanks dude
@Ryan: You can! :)
I like how the first versions look like a constellation, but the revised dot version is also sweet! Maybe have 2 columns of pixels/dots for the maple leaf stem? Really loving this look... you're really good with matching up fonts! I'm from Detroit, so I love my Canadian neighbors. :)
I like this "stitched" version a lot more.
Dude, did you type the title around a path?
