Why am I an RGD?I grew up around stock photo catalogues and Pantone chips: my dad is an RGD. Without an ounce of coercion on his part, as a kid I knew my goal was to become a graphic designer and a certified RGD. I'm proud to be a part of our industry, and the RGD is a big part of that here in Canada — as an important resource, connector and champion of what we do.
What is my most memorable RGD moment?Taking part in a portfolio review night — as a reviewer, rather than a reviewee, for the first time. It was equal parts daunting and rewarding. I had a great time connecting with students, recent grads and professionals to chat about what's going on in design and design education right now.
