Cdot Design Pioneers is an exhibition honouring Toronto's design pioneers--the majority of whom graduated from or taught at OCAD. These pioneers include Clair Stewart, Don Watt, Stuart Ash, Allan Fleming, Heather Cooper, Carl Dair, Hans Kleefeld, Burton Kramer, Ken Rodmell and many more.

A major objective of Cdot, the Communication Designers of Toronto, is to, “learn from and honour local communication design pioneers.” Our Association is the perfect platform for recording the history of communication design (commercial art/graphic art/graphic design) in Toronto. This exhibition honours veterans who had a profound effect on Toronto’s design industry and document their contributions.

As the communication design discipline progresses, it is important to look back and recognize those who contributed to our industry, enabling Toronto’s communications designers to enjoy a professional career today.

Presented by Cdot – Communication Designers of Toronto
Communication Designers of Toronto (Cdot) is a non-profit organization focused on uniting the largest design community in Canada. One of our key objectives is to record and preserve Toronto's design heritage.
