Communication Arts highlights Underline Studio in Illustration Annual
A recent feature in the May/June 2013 issue of Communication Arts explores the partnership of RGD Members Fidel Peña and Claire Dawson, founders of top Canadian design firm Underline Studio


"Communication Arts has been very supportive of our studio from the very beginning," Claire explains. This is the second time Underline has been profiled in the magazine since the studio began in 2005, the first back in 2007 in a profile for CA's 'Fresh' section.


"Rebecca Bedrossian, the Managing Editor, contacted us this year for a feature and we were thrilled to be showcased. Ellen Shapiro came to Toronto in December for the interview and spent the day with us, visiting our studio and the surrounding area."


A reader of the magazine since the beginning of her career, Claire is excited to see her work highlighted in the visual communications publication. “I began looking at Communication Arts as a design student. Now years later to have our work featured on its pages is amazing,” she says.

Claire will also be traveling to Menlo Park in June to help judge CA’s 2013 Design Awards.

Coverage in Communication Arts is great exposure for the studio. "CA is self-described as 'the largest creative magazine in the world' - it's amazing to have our work seen by such a big audience," says Fidel.
