Why am I an RGD?Because it expresses my commitment to the highest professional and ethical standards in the design industry in Canada. Being a certified RGD allows me to connect and exchange knowledge with other designers. It keeps me updated with new information on accessibility, consumer trends, research methods, production processes and advanced digital technologies.
What is my most memorable RGD moment?My most memorable RGD moment so far has been receiving my Certification, and I am looking forward to contributing actively to the association.
Why am I a designer?I am a graphic designer because visually conveying complex concepts and ideas fascinates me, and I am passionate about its creative challenges.
