The Association of Registered Graphic Designers (RGD) was created by an Act of the Ontario Legislature to certify graphic designers who have met a rigorous set of standards that includes documented levels of relevant, professional education and experience, as well as demonstrated competence in the areas of business, design principles, research and theory and ethics through successful completion of a written test and portfolio interview. RGD is the only graphic design association in North America to have this kind of legislation.
RGDs are prepared and capable to function as effective ethical, professional, responsible communications design practitioners, managers and/or educators.
The RGD and Registered Graphic Designer designations are signals of quality and competence to the profession, the public and the government.
The Association's vision is for a graphic design profession that is broadly valued for its contribution to life, commerce and society.
The Association of Registered Graphic Designers (RGD) represents more than 3,700 graphic designers, managers, educators and students.
A creator, instigator and articulator of Brand Image and the role it plays in today's culture.
