RGD issues call for entries for Design At Work 2013: Best of Western Ontario

RGD, The Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario and The Association of Chartered Industrial Designers of Ontario invite submissions for an exhibit featuring design projects created for Western Ontario.


Design at Work 2013: Best of Western Ontario recognizes design solutions that effectively demonstrate the process of design, the role of designers and the value design can bring to business and the local community.


Through this juried exhibit, local designers will have an opportunity to share design challenges, strategies and achievements with their community and contribute to building a greater understanding of the contributions design makes to life, commerce and society.



Eligible projects are those created in the last 2 years where the client and/or designer is based within a 50 km radius of Waterloo Airport, or as far directly west as London, Ontario. A professional member of RGD, ARIDO or ACIDO must have been the Creative Director or Lead Designer on the project.

Self-promotional work is not eligible for consideration. An actual client, whether internal or external, must have been involved.
