The Association of Registered Graphic Designers (RGD) of Ontario 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.
The Association of Registered Graphic Designers of Ontario (RGD Ontario) represents more
than 3,000 graphic designers, managers, educators and students across Ontario.
