Why am I an RGD?Along my graphic design journey, I learnt how many people didn’t understand the importance of graphic design. Sadly, we’re all slotted into one big bowl of, ‘I bought photoshop and therefore I am a designer’. Being a part of the RGD organization distinguishes our group of educated, experienced, dedicated, professionals from the not-so experienced. RGD shows the world that you are a designer of the highest standards, that you are committed to the profession, and are dedicated to raising awareness about the important role that graphic design brings to business, society, culture and education.
What is my most memorable RGD moment?Winning the Award of Distinction at The In-House Design Awards 2019: Take your seat at the table, for the project: Pride & Joy: Supporting LGBTQ+ Student Success 2019
Why am I a designer?I have been a passionate designer and artist my whole life. By using my perfectionist skills, personal taste and trained eye I am able to create designs that are beautiful, thought-out, meaningful and unique. I have always been proud about having the ability to stimulate and influence emotion from others through graphic design.
