The Path through Homelessness campaign, developed by Kingston’s BM Dodo Strategic Design for the United Way of Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington and the City of Kingston, won a 2022 So(cial) Good Design award.

The local campaign, featuring photography by Bernard Clark, was shortlisted for recognition in the Civil and Human Rights category by a panel of 19 design leaders.

The campaign’s goal was to reduce stigma and connect people to resources that can help them, a press release from BM Dodo Strategic Design said.

The campaign shares stories of individuals from different backgrounds who are or have been homeless, showing how their journey through life and their experiences have led to homelessness, according to the statement.

Organized by the Association of Registered Graphic Designers (RGD), the So(cial) Good Design Awards are a bi-annual international design competition that celebrates the undeniable power of design to inspire meaningful action and effect positive change.

Two other Kingston-related companies were among the winners in other categories.

1dea Design and Media Inc. won the Health, Wellness and Safety category for The Connecting Guide, and Backcountry Branding won the Sustainability, Ecology and Climate category for its sustainable coffee packaging.

The 54 winning projects from the competition will be honored at a ceremony on June 1 at the Vancouver Playhouse as part of the DesignThinkers conference. An exhibit of the winners will travel across Canada, including a stop at the Kingston Frontenac Public Library from September 18 to October 2.
