RDG Design Residency – For the past 8 years RDG’s Design Residency has invited the nation’s top graduate students – from many fields – to leverage their talents and knowledge to address complex community problems. Multimedia graphics bring together all of the Design Residency’s elements. Focused on supporting the efforts of the Residency, the elements include letterhead, agendas, note cards, website, name tags and program documents.
Des Moines Downtown Farmers Market Gold Logo – We have loved working with the Downtown Des Moines Farmers’ Market for several years, developing graphics that help draw thousands of community members and visitors downtown on Saturdays from May to October. In summer 2018, the Farmers’ Market teamed with Court Avenue Brewing Company to launch “Farmers’ Market Gold” beer, featuring this now award-winning label design by our Multimedia pros.
Des Moines Parks & Recreation Comprehensive Plan – When the City of Des Moines created its first long-range plan for parks and recreation in over twenty years, they realized there was a massive amount of data and information to share. The City asked our Multimedia team to create a design that would make the content visually interesting and easy to understand. The result is a plan that helps the community quickly see and feel the needs of the community’s park system, long term.
RDG Design Friday – Our annual Design Friday is our firm’s once-a-year way to bring professionals from all RDG’s offices together for one day of creative exploration – the heart of who we are. Our Multimedia team brought a creative, cohesive look and energy to the 2018 event with collateral that ranged from nametags and t-shirts to digital and printed announcements, signage, and an “IGNITE” art piece.
