NEWSFive Scholarships awarded to Members who embraced self-reflection

RGD is excited to announce the winners of five $500 Scholarships sponsored by One Twenty Three West, Pound & Grain, Twice and Will Creative Inc.

To enter RGD’s Scholarship Program for DesignThinkers 2019 VAN (taking place at the Vancouver Playhouse on May 28+29), we asked Student RGDs, Provisional RGDs and Junior Affiliate Members to share a past design project on social media and explain how and why they’d redesign it today.

The five winners below truly embraced the process of constructive self-reflection, remarking on everything from their typography choices to spacing to the project layout and content.

Each winner receives $500 from their Sponsor and a free conference registration to DesignThinkers provided by RGD.

To see all of the Scholarship entries, search #rgdDT on social media.
