It's your turn to make history
Graphex is Canada's biennial national design awards and has been celebrating the best of visual communications in Canada since 1977. In 2013, we are celebrating Canadian design pioneers who paved the foundation for modern practices, and recognizing the new generation of designers for contributing to the graphic and communication design profession.
Presented by the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada (GDC®) , and organized for the first time by the Alberta North Chapter, the primary goals of Graphex are to promote the value of design to the Canadian public and business community at large, to celebrate the best in the industry, and to create an archive of Canadian design for future generations.
The GDC would like to thank Errol Saldanha and the Communication Designers Association for spearheading the Design Pioneers initiative. We are honored to continue the work which CDA began by sharing the legacy of the Canadian designers that we are displaying on the Graphex website and collateral.
Special thanks to type designer Rod McDonald, FGDC, for his advice on this project.
