Icograda President, 1987-1989 Niko served on the Icograda board from 1983 until 1991. 1969-1991, Founding partner of what is now Eden Design, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 1991, Lives and lectures in Melbourne, Australia. 1995, Founding partner of Ography, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, practising graphic design. Everything in the Netherlands is made by people, designed if you like, including the landscape. Every tree is planted and planned to be planted. Not so in Australia. This is the main source of cultural difference between the two countries. Just planning and perseverance was the idea. Add to this a fierce sense of personal independence and a head for experimenting on about everything practical and pragmatic. A place made by people to suit great diversity: that is the Netherlands! Now living and practising design in easy going Melbourne all this is quite different. The environment is vast, unknown, beautifull and amazingly varied. Inspirational . . , to do what? People do not make Australia. The land makes the people. The best is still to come.

(DA) is Austria's only professional association and service organization representing the interests of designers from all the creative disciplines graphic design and illustration, product design, and web design.The association was founded as early as 1927 als Bund Osterreichischer Gebrauchsgraphiker (BOG). Outstanding artists' personalities, such as the illustrator Alfred Kubin, the typographer Rudolf von Larisch, and Joseph Binder, a pioneer of modern n graphic design, numbered among its members. Today, renowned designers such as Stefan Sagmeister or Ferdinand A. Porsche continue this tradition.In 1992 the association opened up to embrace also other fields of design, apart from graphics. This was due to an increasingly interdisciplinary professional approach and because of the fact that individual creative processes are at the basis of all design activity. Today, Design has some 1,300 members from all design disciplines, most of whom work as freelance designers.Service is one of the main concerns of Design . Besides the individual counselling of its members, basic information is on top of the list. Members are primarily informed through the association's own publications and periodicals, such as the calculation and competition guidelines, which assist both designers and clients or competition organizers. This mandate to inform goes hand in hand with an educational programme: Design Austria organizes seminars (client acquisition, creative techniques, calculation, copyright), lectures featuring international speakers, and excursions.Events are held regularly in and abroad; besides comprehensive exhibitions meant to promote Austrian design and a variety of small-scale presentations, Design Austria has been the host of the designforum MQ together with the Austrian Design Foundation since late 2005. Design Austria organises international and national design competitions, such as the Joseph Binder Award, the Romulus Candea Prize, and the Adolf Loos National Design Prize.

Tuuli Sauren, Creative and Art Director, is the founder of INSPIRIT International Communications and its Sustainable Design and Promotion Group. “There isn't anything I can’t do, if I really want to” has been her motto throughout her life. Determination to reach the goal and finding new solutions to get there is her modus operendi. She started her career at McCann-Erickson in Helsinki, Finland as an assistant to art director, quickly climbing the ladder to become one of the most sought-after art directors. During the agency years her clients included Coca-Cola, Shell, and Sportia, as well as many clients in the fashion industry and business-to-business sector . Restless in the traditional hierarchical style agency, with too many layers between her and the client, Tuuli wanted to make a change from being employed to being an independent Art and Creative Director. After working with other agencies, Tuuli broke out on her own and became a Freelance Creative in Holland, including work with and with J. Walter Thompson. In the early 90s she moved to Brussels and established her own freelance brand, INSPIRIT International Advertising. She continued her work as an art director and designer for clients including the European Free Trade Association, EFTA Court, Global Reporting Initiative, World Health Organization, International Catholic Migration Commission, International Fund for Agricultural Development, Boole & Babbage Europe and many other international organizations. INSPIRIT International Communications was born in 2005. Its 'There is a solution to everything’, motto helped attract and retain long-lasting client relationships. Tuuli is a Juror at ico-D (International Council of Design) Sustainability Standard and a Board Member of the Union Design of Belgium. In Spring 2015 she launched Sustainable Designers Initiative (SDI), an initiative of INSPIRIT International Communication, Sustainable Design and Promotion Group to help young design graduates make their mark on the industry. She also has a passion for horses and human intellects.

In 1979 he produced and hosted a series of five television programs on 'Language made visible' for CTV/ the national University of the Air.

Member Profile

Albert Ng has had an illustrious career in graphic design. One of Canada’s best-known designers, he led a ten-year campaign for the professional accreditation of graphic designers in Ontario. The resulting legislation caused him to become known as the “father of graphic design accreditation.” Mr Ng founded the Association of Registered Graphic Designers of Ontario. He helped develop clearly defined standards of professional practice, quality post-secondary education programs, and a greater understanding of the important role of graphic design in business and economic success. His accreditation model was a first in North America, second world-wide, and his contributions to design have helped Ontario’s graphic designers be globally competitive.

— From the Order of Ontario Citation investiture ceremony
   24 January 2008

Albert Ng, a Canadian widely regarded as the father of graphic design accreditation in North America, was one of 27 recipients recently invested
in the Order of Ontario by the Honourable David Onley, Lieutenant
Governor of Ontario.

The Order of Ontario, the province’s highest and most prestigious honour, is awarded to Ontarians for outstanding achievement and excellence in any field. The men and women invested in The Order are representative of the best of Ontario’s caring and diverse society and stand as shining examples for us all. Their lives have benefited society in Ontario and elsewhere.

Albert Ng is indeed such a remarkable and outstanding individual. For more
than two decades he devoted himself to raising the standards and the profile
of Canada’s graphic design profession. What has transpired from his profound commitment to this design discipline, together with his astute leadership
and unwavering vision, is a lasting gift of innovative collaboration and
outstanding achievement.

Albert’s aspirations for the profession came to fruition only after many years of dedicated work. He saw what the profession lacked and set out to remedy the situation, even when told the challenges would be impossible to overcome. Undeterred, he persisted in his pursuit of professional recognition and convinced other designers to lend their support to his accreditation plan. “Accreditation would be for our next generation of designers and students,” he said (and
still says).

Of the many successes stemming from accreditation, Albert counts creating the professional self-governing body for Ontario’s graphic designers, creating the Examination Board for Registered Graphic Designers, and elevating Ontario’s professional and graphic design-education standards as his most rewarding achievements. These were milestones indeed and they have forever changed the outlook for Canadian graphic design.

With accreditation Albert has enhanced the reputation of Canadian designers on an international level. He is quick to recall an early comment from one well-known American designer, “I am inspired and impressed by the thoughtful and methodical work that Canadian designers are doing to make professional accreditation a reality. It seems like every time U.S. designers get together to discuss the subject, it deteriorates into a shouting match!” It’s not just the Americans who have been watching the effects of accreditation; several Asian governments and many graphic design organizations, and even the Queensland government of Australia, have taken notice and have approached Albert for advice and information about his accreditation projects.

Accreditation has opened the door for changes in the education of Ontario’s graphic designers too. New post-graduate design degree programs are being established and one and two-year post-secondary design programs have been eliminated, with three or four year applied degrees or honours bachelor degrees becoming the norm.

Albert’s contributions to Canadian graphic design are well-known. He was the founding president of the Association of Registered Graphic Designers of Ontario, a former vice-president of Icograda, and former president of the Ontario chapter of the GDC. He is also the first Canadian designer to be honoured as a Fellow of both the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada (GDC) and the Association of Registered Graphic Designers of Ontario (RGD Ontario). A former Association president recently commented that, “without Mr Ng’s initial vision for graphic design accreditation in Ontario there would be no RGD Ontario.”
