Mel Sutjiadi RGD selected to design RGD Membership Sticker for 2021

After careful consideration, the RGD Communications Committee has selected Mel Sutjiadi RGD to design the RGD Certification Sticker for 2021. 

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

“The annual refresh of the RGD Certification sticker is a fascinating way to track the change and growth of the Association and all of our design sensibilities." explains Julian Brown RGD, VP & Chair of the RGD Communications Committee. "I love the work Mel has done, specifically posters over the years for the Vancouver Queer Film Festival. It’s going to be great to see where they will take the design in 2021."
