Two members of the GDC Manitoba Chapter achieved CGD certification in the summer of 2014. We’re excited to announce that Dana Hepting and Daniel Lamb have reached this high standard of professional design.
With a Bachelor of Applied Arts (Visual Communications) from Medicine Hat College, Dana Hepting started out her Graphic Design career working at an NGO on a tiny island in the South Pacific. She then got a job as a Graphic Designer at Mennonite Central Committee in Winnipeg, and has been there ever since. Her work is focused on print, but recently has also included a website redesign. She is currently working towards a degree at the University of Winnipeg in the Rhetoric, Writing and Communications program, after seeing the need for strong writing skills as a complement to design skills. When she's not working or in school, Dana loves to longboard, and lie in her hammock and read novels.
Daniel Lamb is a designer with a passion for building things. After graduating from the three-year design course and one-year 3D animation course at Red River College, he has held positions as a prop fabricator, graphic designer, animator, teacher and web developer. When he's not on the clock, you'll find him pursuing a variety of design-related hobbies including product and furniture design, carpentry and building flying machines.
CGD Certification is a mark that indicates that a GDC member has been assessed within their area of proficiency (designer, academic or leader) and has been determined to be of a professional standard. This standard includes a high degree of competence within their area of proficiency, compliance to a professional conduct code of ethics and a commitment to sustainable practice.
