The 2022 Registered Graphic Designers (RGD) So(cial) Good Design Awards exhibit is making a stop at the Kingston Frontenac Public Library this fall. The SoGood Award-winning projects are travelling the country to public libraries, including a stop at the Central Branch from September 27 through October 14.
According to a release from the library, the awards are given in an international competition that showcases designer’s potential to drive social change. The exhibit will showcase the winners on the first and second floors of the Central Branch.
“Having RGD offer this exhibit is a unique opportunity for our community’s creative minds,” said Jake Miller, Librarian, Adult Programming. “Current and aspiring designers, and everyone else who views the exhibit, will be reminded how influential design can be when applied to promoting a cause. The viewer encounters design first; it’s the gateway to the message. The SoGood pieces emphasize this point.”
In addition to viewing the exhibit, library patrons can register to join a panel discussion led by RGD on Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2022, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Central Branch at https://calendar.kfpl.ca/event/7061979.
The library said that the awards recognize design projects that promote arts and culture, civil and human rights, diversity, equity and inclusion, education, health, wellbeing and safety, humanitarian action and services, sustainability, ecology and climate, and projects with broad impact that bridge more than one area of social good.
