#RGDStudentChallenges February Top 10

RGD's Student Committee recently launched #RGDStudentChallenges - an Instagram challenge where Student RGD Members are invited to post projects based on a new theme each month. February's theme was RED - here are the top 10 selections for the month!


Paul Ching, OCAD U | @paulchiing

I made a series of 9 accordion fold booklets that spreads out to form a mural for a type project on translating an online article written in 2 languages to print. The Yoshida Testimony is an article by Asahi Shimbum retelling the fukushima nuclear accident through transcripts by the plants general manager Masao Yoshida.


Jordan Jackson, Humber College | @jordan_ajackson

Selected designs from my type specimen book for Aktiv Grotesk; a typeface family from Dalton Maag with 48 styles.

With a theme of Postmodern Athletics (1921-1974), this book shows off the typeface's various widths and cuts in display and list formats. Every image in this piece is scanned from various books that my dad has collected over the years ranging back to 1920. I will be expanding and printing this over the coming weeks in order to display it on Behance and my website.


Joeseph Thoong, Vancouver Island University | @joethoongdesign
Just before I moved out for university I helped out my parents with rebranding their restaurant. Just as a way of thanking them for everything!
