Some sad news to share today, Ms Rita Siow passed away over the weekend.
Rita has been a vital member of the AGDA team since our inception in 1988. The impact she has made on AGDA over these three decades has been far reaching – as a state and national councilor for 7 years, General Manager/Executive Director for 14 years, and most recently as the Chair of the AGDA Hall of Fame committee.
She also established the 'Design Effectiveness' category in the AGDA Awards which focuses on celebrating measurable and client focused graphic design.
AGDA simply would not be where it is today without Rita’s significant contribution, passion, and enthusiasm. She is irreplicable and will be very much missed.
On behalf of our Regional Councils, AGDA Operations team, and the AGDA Board of Directors – both past and present, we pass on our condolences and best wishes to her family, friends, colleagues, and anyone lucky enough to know her.
