As the GDC’s current sole National Sustaining Sponsor, procreate, a division of
Corel Corp., will connect and interact with graphic designers nationwide while advancing the GDC’s efforts to promote graphic design in the lives of Canadians, according to Steve Houck, executive vice president of strategic relations for procreate.
“We’re pleased to add procreate as our first-ever Sustaining Sponsor,” said Cynthia Hoffos, president of the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada, which was founded in Toronto in 1956 as the Society of Typographic Designers of Canada. “There’s an obvious connection between the creative professionals procreate serves and our membership and we’re looking forward to collaborating with procreate to advance the design movement in Canada.”
GDC, which is a member of the International Council of Graphic Design Associations supports the development of graphic designers in Canada and promotes high graphics standards for the benefit of Canadian industry, commerce, public service and education.
