I know a lot about...

“People, design and business—And the power of identity to be the uniter or the divider of the three.”

I'm an RGD Member because...

“The RGD is good for designers and good for business. The RGD not only helps cultivate skills and knowledge but also supports and protects the interests of the companies we support.”
