Since 2013, RGD has been recognizing Canadian corporate leaders whose appreciation for the role of design drives innovation and business success within their organizations.
"The DesignThinker of the Year is such a unique award in that it recognizes how strategically important design can be for corporate leaders, and highlights how design can be a really big lever for influencing business success."
Jordan Bamforth, Creative Director at Beau's All Natural Brewing
Each year, designers of all disciplines and individuals are invited to submit nominations for the DesignThinker of the Year Award. Nominees must be corporate leaders who work for companies, organizations or institutions based in Canada.
