Reddin Symposium 2012 :: Celebrating 25 Years
The Reddin Symposium is designed to improve community understanding about Canada. The Reddin family of Bowling Green originally suggested the idea of an annual Canadian symposium and has funded the event every year. Now celebrating twenty-five years, the symposium has covered a diverse range of topics that enhance our understanding of Canada.
March 21, 2012
Join us for an evening discussing CANADA BY DESIGN. Canada is not just a producer of design. It is a product of design. What does it mean to make a country? Design extraordinaire Dave Mason examines the choices that have shaped Canada into the nation it is today.
Born and raised in Canada, Dave Mason held a number of colorful jobs before co-founding what is now smbolic (smbolic.com) in 1995. On the side, he has been a co-founder of several successful businesses, as well as being an integral team member for the annual Chicago-based Cusp Conference, LLC.
His work has appeared in far more impressive publications than is reasonable to list, and he has been exhibited at the Museum für Kunst and Gewerbe in Hamburg, Germany. He has served as a juror for many international competitions, and as a guest speaker at numerous design and business schools, conferences and events.
Dave was recently extremely honored to be named a Fellow by the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada.
