Posted by Rebecca Blake on November 14, 2017

On October 24, representatives from 14 international associations of designers, architects, urban planners, and landscape architects signed the Montreal Design Declaration. The signing took place at the conclusion of the first ever international Design Summit Meeting, and in the presence of representatives from three UN agencies: UNESCO, UN-Habitat, and UN Environment.

From Design Certification to National Design Policies

Posted by Guest on October 30, 2017

International Council of Design (ico-D) is an international organization of graphic arts associations; their annual Platform Meeting took place October 13 and 14 in Montréal, Canada this year, and as in previous years Rebecca Blake represented the Guild and participated as the National Design Policy workgroup lead. The Platform Meetings are organized for the international members of ico-D’s Education Platform (design educational institutions and programs) and Professional Platform (design associations) to review presentations and discuss issues of concern to designers and design educators. It’s an excellent opportunity to meet with one’s peers and gain an international perspective on common issues.

The Graphic Artists Guild’s Advocacy Liaison Rebecca Blake was elected to the ico-D Executive Committee October 16th and will serve as International Treasurer. It’s the culmination of years of work; Blake has been the Guild’s representative to ico-D since 2007. She also became directly involved with ico-D, first by serving on the organization’s Audit Committee, and later by heading their National Design Policy workgroup. I interviewed Blake to ask why she sees ico-D as being an important part of the Guild’s portfolio of activity.

Posted by Rebecca Blake on October 23, 2017

The Guild’s National Board – Executive Committee, Regional Representatives, and Administrators – returned to its tradition of holding an annual in-person meeting. It was a wonderful opportunity for a group of individuals who typically meet virtually to connect, brainstorm, and get caught up on Guild activities and initiatives in person. The meeting took place in Atlanta, Georgia, over two days, and was kicked off with a wonderful reception at B.142 Bar and Lounge, organized by Southern Regional Rep (and Atlanta resident) Yanique DaCosta.
