Paul Twa Provisional RGD

Paul Twa is a graphic designer, illustrator, and lettering artist born and raised in Edmonton. Paul is a graduate of the University of Alberta's Bachelor of Design program and currently lives in Toronto where he has been working as an independent designer and illustrator. His work has been recognized nationally by the Graphic Designers of Canada, the Association of Registered Graphic Designers, and Applied Arts. He was selected as a speaker to present at the ICON11 illustration conference in Kansas City. Paul's practice as a designer and illustrator is driven by a desire to create visually distinct, thoroughly studied, and intricately crafted work for clients while also maintaining a personal body of work that explores his individual voice and creativity. With a keen interest in history, Paul enjoys studying the visual culture of the past as a way to inform the work he is making today; blending the magic of maximalism with research and intention. His annual ‘Year in Review’ project documents the memorable events of each year through illustration and has been highlighted by the CBC, CTV, and DesignTAXI.

Designer @ Paul Twa: Design + Illustration


I know a lot about...

“How to craft a bespoke illustration system for a brand that creates unique storytelling opportunities for audiences. Illustration has the power to tell distinctive stories and by combining my design and illustration skills together, I can help you create something that fits the industry sector and is robust and flexible across many applications.”

I'm an RGD Member because...

“It helps me feel connected to a national community of creatives. My fellow designers remind me that I am contributing to something larger than my individual projects. We are all contributors to the design industry in Canada and responsible for making it a more sustainable career for creative talent.”

The best advice I've ever received is...

“Know your strengths and don't be afraid to lean into your specialty. The work you put out will likely be the type of work you receive future opportunities in.”
