New RGD Member Projects

Check out work by Lindsay Smail RGD, q30, Intent, Lauren Wickware Design and Rethink


Lindsay Smail RGD created a new logo for Pollara Strategic Insights, a Toronto-based research firm.

The stylized “o”, based on camera focus guides, reflects the insight, clarity and perspective that Pollara offers their clients. This element features prominently in their communication materials, including their website and social media graphics.


Hans Thiessen RGD and the Rethink team developed an identity for Toast + Jam, a Toronto based audio house looking to showcase how the right audio can change everything.

The solution: let audio design the identity. Rethink developed an openFrameworks app that translated the unique rhythm, pitch and tempo of any piece of audio into a dynamic, shape shifting wordmark.


Ben Hagon RGD, and the team at Intent created brand guidelines and related materials for the “Inclusion & Diversity Blueprint”.

The “Inclusion & Diversity Blueprint” outlines the government’s new priorities and actions to increase diversity, inclusion and anti-racism within the Ontario Public Service workplace. Intent  created a vibrant, rich and inclusive design approach—including brand guidelines and related materials—that tied together the client’s messaging attractively and consistently.


Glenda Rissman RGD and Peter Scott RGD and the team at q30 collaborated with the Ontario Hospital Association to visually articulate their new 4 year strategic plan.

It engaged key stakeholders in OHA’s vision and reaffirmed their commitment to members in a compellingly visual way. For launch, q30 produced and illustrated an animation, brochure and pocket folder and subsection on OHA’s website.


Lauren Wickware RGD designed The Radcliffe Line and Other Geographies publication collection.

Taking a cue from the artist’s collection of polychromatic exercise books, the publication features UV inks on uncoated paper to showcase vibrant colours and tactile pages that reinforce the materiality of books as objects. The feminine flourish of the typeface highlights the importance of Dhaliwal's use of text in her work.
