Company description
My name is Daniel, and I’m a Creative Director specializing in family-friendly creative content with a focus on STEM/STEAM education, eLearning, and emotional wellbeing. My goal is to positively impact young lives through great design by creating engaging, learn-through-play experiences.
Why am I an RGD?
I am fueled by an insatiable curiosity and the drive to never stop learning. As a member of the RGD, I'm not just part of an organization; I'm immersed in a vibrant community of like-minded visionaries who constantly learn from each other, and ultimately raise the collective value as designers and the work we do.
What is my most memorable RGD moment?
At the 2018 DesignThinkers conference in Vancouver, I took a front-row seat on day one. The very first talk that day didn't just inspire me; it pivoted the trajectory of my career as a designer.
Why am I a designer?
I design for kids and the the work I do has potential to inspire, educate, and nurture. Every project I undertake is an opportunity to create learn-through-play experiences that can shape the future of the next generation. My commitment stems from a desire to leave a lasting, positive imprint on young lives, guiding them towards a brighter, more informed future.
Why should you hire me?
My specialization in family-friendly content, combined with a deep understanding of STEM/STEAM education, eLearning, and emotional well-being, positions me to create content that's not only visually captivating but also educationally enriching. I pride my work on creating pathways to engaging experiences that critical thinking and emotional balance. With a proven track record of positively impacting young lives, I am committed to ensuring that every project I undertake serves a greater purpose.
Where do I see myself in 5 years?
I'm deeply passionate about designing for children, yet I recognize the vast potential that remains untapped in conveying the true value of child-centric design. In five years, I envision myself at the forefront as both a business and educational design leader. My focus will be on championing a future that seamlessly integrates Indigenization, decolonization, and STEAM education.
Contributions to RGD
I am deeply committed to shaping an equitable future within the design community. Beyond my design work, I take immense pride in mentoring the next generation of designers, sharing my insights and experiences to nurture their growth and inspire them to elevate the industry standards.
