Amanda DeVries RGD selected to design RGD Membership Sticker for 2025

Written by Amanda DeVries RGD, Eye Candy Design

After careful consideration, the RGD Design Committee selected Amanda DeVries RGD to design the RGD Certification Sticker for 2025. 

The Sticker will be distributed to Certified RGD Members across Canada to be added to their RGD Certificates, representing another year of commitment to professional standards, ethical conduct and industry best practices. 

“When the Committee reached out about this project, I was beyond honoured. The RGD, and with it the Diversity and Inclusion Committee, continues to create opportunities for me to stretch my skills and extend my reach into the wide, wonderful world of design. My goal is to create something both highly inclusive yet ultimately deeply personal. As a packaging designer, I am accustomed to designing within small spaces but having the Canadian design community as the audience has certainly changed the stakes!!”
