"The RGD Student Blog was created to provide RGD students with relevant resources and insight into the student experience from design programs across Canada," says Committee Co-Chair Sam Campbell Student RGD, a student in his last year at St. Lawrence College in Kingston. "We hope the Blog will help facilitate a community of RGD Students who feel connected and supported."
Fellow Co-Chair Daniela Luchetta Student RGD, who attends George Brown College in Toronto, also looks forward to sharing the Blog with fellow students. "We wanted to create a place where students could go to stay current on what is happening with RGD and in the creative industry. It will be a home for videos of talks from industry professionals and posts and musings from the student perspective."
Features of the site include:
- Field Notes - Reports on RGD events attended by Student Member contributors who take notes to be shared with those who were unable to attend the event.
- School Spotlight - Students write about their experiences in their design programs to share with other students and potential students.
- Awards & Events - A listing of upcoming award programs that students can enter and events relevant to students that they may wish to attend.
- Ask an RGD - Student RGD Members conduct video interviews of professional designers to learn about their experiences and get their insights into the industry.
