After careful consideration, the RGD Communications Committee has selected Rod McDonald RGD to design the RGD Certification Sticker for 2020.
The Sticker will be distributed to certified RGD Members across Canada to be added to their RGD Certificates and Membership cards, representing another year of commitment to professional standards, ethical conduct and industry best practices.
"As a long-time member it occurred to me recently that I see three very distinct phases to being an RGD member," explains Rod. "1) starting out and beginning to understand the design world; 2) the middle stage when you feel busy but accomplished; and 3) the pay-off stage when you get to build on our contributions. In each of these three stages the RGD provides support, knowledge and community. When you reach the stage where you can look back you realize just how important those three tools are. While it’s true that we’re each responsible for our own success, or failure, I do not know a single person who has accomplished anything who has done it entirely by themselves."
"The RGD Certification stickers represent another year of commitment to professional standards, ethical conduct and industry best practices amongst our member base," explains Nicola Hamilton RGD, Communications Chair. "The tradition of a newly designed sticker each year is a highlight—whether it's your first or fifth. We're pleased to announce that this year, Rod McDonald RGD, will be bringing this little square to life in honour of our craft."
