Elana Rudick RGD selected to design RGD Membership Sticker for 2024

The RGD Design Committee has selected Elana Rudick RGD to design the RGD Certification Sticker for 2024. 


The Sticker will be distributed to Certified RGD Members across Canada to be added to their RGD Certificates, representing another year of commitment to professional standards, ethical conduct and industry best practices.  


"I’ve always looked forward to receiving the new sticker, and I am excited and honoured to be designing it for 2024. When I began developing the concept for the 2024 sticker, my first inclination was to go to a place where a lot of my creative ideas have sparked in the past. Sitting at my favourite park overlooking the St. Lawrence River, I thought about what being part of the RGD means to me. To me, the RGD is a vibrant community for graphic designers that fosters a sense of belonging, professional growth and connection. With this in mind, I look forward to sharing more in the coming months about my process and, of course, the sticker design itself! Stay turned!" offers Elana.
