RGD COO & Director of Membership, Heidi Mulzer, will be in Sault Ste. Marie to attend Sault College's grad show, “Brain Candy,” to set up RGD's 2012 Social Good Design Awards exhibit and host a sitting of the Registered Graphic Designers Qualification Exam.
Sault College is celebrating design this month with its Brain Candy Grad Show and RGD's Social Good Design Awards Exhibit.
Launched in 2012, RGD's Social Good Design Awards celebrate work that demonstrates the power design has to make our world a better place. The 2012 competition received over 200 entries from 11 countries. Comprised of 35 projects, the exhibit illustrates how graphic designers are making a difference in the world through positive, socially progressive work.
"It's such a great opportunity for Sault College and the Graphic Design program to host work like this," says Terry Hill RGD, Design Professor at Sault College. "Showing off how visual communications is important to society is extremely significant to our program. At Sault College, we endeavour to teach our graphic design students about the important role they can play in our community and the world."
The exhibit will be on display from April 26th to May 23rd in the G-wing of Sault College.
Sault College's grad show, Brain Candy, is also happening this month, showcasing the work of Sault College's third year graduating students at Loplops on Friday, April 26 from 3 to 8 p.m. For more information check out the event page on Facebook here.
In addition to the two exhibits, Sault College also welcomes the first group RGD exam sitting in Sault Ste Marie. "It is very exciting to see our graduates grow and develop to the point of becoming Registered professionals," says Terry. "With this group taking the step to achieve the RGD designation, there is growing recognition of the importance of design in the Algoma region."
