The Toronto Chapter of the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD) has recently recognized Entro’s Andrew Kuzyk for his 25 years serving as Chapter Chair. Over time Andrew has seen the organization grow its membership base, expand into a variety of different fields, and increase its role in educating both students and the public. Though Andrew remains an active member of SEGD and an ambassador for the Toronto Chapter, he passes the torch on to Entro’s Cynthia Damar-Schnobb, his co-chair for the past three years.
Andrew is grateful to have served such a unique organization: “We have a strong educational foundation where we all rally around the idea of being able to teach the public about Experiential Graphic Design (EGD). However it is not only an organization for education and industry purposes – members can build friendships and camaraderie and have open discussions where ideas and ideals are shared. SEGD is also completely international and multidisciplinary, which is really the only way you can produce and develop great EGD work.”
The CEO of SEGD, Clive Roux, is thankful for Andrew’s influence and dedication to the organization: “When I first met Andrew I was greeted with such warmth and a genuine interest that it left me with a really welcome feeling. I know that Andrew has welcomed everyone to the SEGD community in the same open manner and as such has served as an outstanding ambassador as well as leader for the SEGD community as a Toronto Chapter Chair and well beyond that over the years. Through Andrew’s and the rest of Entro's contributions, SEGD is alive and well in Toronto, representing the very best of Canadian design. We cannot thank Andrew enough for all his contributions (so far!) to the development of the SEGD community."
Andrew feels honoured to have his contributions recognized by his peers, and looks forward to SEGD’s further development over the next 25 years.
