RGD Members enjoy a professional advantage. The Association provides members with the backing of a credible, legislated professional organization in the conduct of their business. RGD Membership communicates dedication and commitment to the profession. RGD Members have access to a credible forum for professional dialogue and the exchange of information and ideas.

The Registered Graphic Designer (RGD) certification denotes a quality signal to buyers of graphic design services, helping them distinguish between graphic designers and persons with little or no training who purport to offer graphic design services.

Through our large and active membership base, we are able to provide a unified and credible voice for graphic designers when lobbying business, educational institutions and government with respect to issues affecting graphic designers. We are also able to heighten awareness of the skills held by graphic design professionals and the value of design as a strategic business tool.

RGD depends on strength in numbers to speak effectively on behalf of the profession. Lend your support by joining our ranks.
