The donor wall is a special thank you to all the donors of the Canadian Museum of History, which includes monetary and artifact donations. A physical, updatable panel system allows the museum to update its content every year. A passive screen highlights the reason to give and showcase artifacts donations received over the years. An interactive screen allows visitors to search donor information, donation amount, and artifacts received. The undulating sculptural form is inspired by the iconic architecture and interior features of the museum, visually connecting the donor wall to the architecture.

Why am I an RGD?In a world where anyone who has access to a computer or word processor may claim to be a designer, being an RGD provides me the credibility as a professional, as well as the access to a network of designers who are willing to share what they have learned in design is incredible.
What is my most memorable RGD moment?The most memorable RGD moment is helping the team writing the updated accessibility handbook. It is a blessing to have the chance to meet everyone at the editorial team, who are all dedicated to share what they have learned about accessible design.
Why am I a designer?As an environment graphic designer, we have the opportunity to influence how who information and story would be told through physical environments. Whether it be an exhibit, a wayfinding program, or environmental graphics, our design can connect to people, the physical space they are in, and the story we are helping to tell. Seeing people's reactions to our creations is most gratifying!
