Ottawa Design Club #3, RAW
The Ottawa Design Club is a group of creatives with a dream of uniting the design community in Ottawa. With inspiration from the Montreal Design Club, our founder, Isabelle (Izzy) Poirier, and cofounder, Ariane Bédard, came together in 2020 to create a safe and inclusive space for local artists to share their work and meet new people with a similar passion.
As a side-project during the pandemic, The O.D.C. also started curating zines. With the support of their community, they have been able to publish several zine editions, each with its own unique theme, design, and multi sensorial experience.
Issue 0003 explores the multi-layered meaning of RAW. The unprocessed, the unpolished, the unfiltered.
