I’m a commercial printer and communicator by trade. As a DesCan Affiliate member, I am one of thousands of like-minded communicators. I get to witness first-hand what the design community’s challenges, goals, and aspirations are; and provide instant feedback through my business decisions. This opportunity to be present, get involved and make a positive impact is incredible.

Connection and collaboration with DesCan. You are an ally, a friend, and play a key role in the design communications industry.

Affiliate Membership is a rewarding opportunity for non-designers who work in fields related to communication design and want to get to connect with DesCan.

Affiliate members bring a diverse range of expertise and connections to the organization. This includes: Educators, photographers, illustrators, marketers, social media experts, printers, copywriters, and others alike.
