New Projects from Blok, Crescent, Design de Plume, Gravity, Studio 123 & Underline

From a report on hunger to an identity for a photography, see what RGD Members have been working on!


Geordie Allen RGD, Laura Sellors RGD, Kenn Waplington RGD and the team at Crescent designed the HungerCount 2015 Report for Food Banks Canada. 

This report on food bank usage across the country highlights the surprising levels of need and presents recommendations for change. The design centres around the notion of a fridge and the many angles this object offered for telling the story. For more, click here


Claire Dawson RGD, Fidel Pena RGD and the team at Underline Studio created a new identity for Daniel Ehrenworth Photography.



Daniel Ehrenworth is a Toronto-based commercial photographer with a vibrant and colourful style and a personality to match. He came to Underline wanting a bold identity reminiscent of 1970s film titles and The Muppet Show. Underline reworked these influences to create a contemporary identity and colour palette that parallel Dan’s style of photography and playful, exuberant personality. For more, click here

At four kilos, Lucha: A Tribute is the biggest book Blok team has ever produced. It provides a truly unique perspective to the world of the luchador, capturing the myth, the magic and the deep humanity of people who believe that lucha libre is their destiny. For more, click here


Melissa Deschenes RGD, Meggan Michaud RGD, Jennifer Taback RGD and their team at Design de Plume worked with the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit to create a guidebook for staying active during the winter months, aimed toward First Nations communities.
