Hospital’s Calendar Wins So(cial) Good Design Award

Steve Coghill (centre), Senior Graphic Designer at Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre, designed the award winning calendar in partnership with the Hospital’s Department of Prevention and Screening Services.

Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre’s Staff Health and Wellness calendar was the recipient of the So(cial) Design Award from the Association of Registered Graphic Designers (RGD).

Steve Coghill , our Hospital’s Senior Graphic Designer with the Communications & Engagement Department, is behind the calendar’s award-winning creative concept. “The Calendar has become one of my favourite projects to work on. It provides a great opportunity to be creative while visually representing the importance of positive and healthy lifestyles. It’s something I’m proud to be a part of.”

The RGD invites submissions of graphic design projects from around the world done under the theme of communication design for social good; which refers to work that has the power to incite action and make meaningful change in the way we live our lives.

For the past seven years, our Hospital’s Staff Health and Wellness Calendar has featured over 300 staff members from all areas and disciplines of the Hospital, capturing the many ways they choose to stay healthy and has had an overall positive impact on our Hospital’s culture. It is distributed to almost all staff and volunteers and serves as a year-round health promotion tool, with 365 day’s worth of healthy messaging.
