profile

The graphic work of  Ginette Caron grows through lightness and playful poetry, mixing feelings and visual moods into witty and keen compositions. She digs into the very essence of the question to create new and unexpected communication systems.

She graduated in Graphic Design at Concordia University in Montréal, her hometown, where she worked for a few years before moving to Italy. She lived in Bologna and Venice and then founded in Milan her own studio “Ginette Caron Communication Design”.
For twelve years, she worked with Pierluigi Cerri / Gregotti Associati International in Milan on total identity programs related mainly to art, Italian design and fashion industries.

Former in-house design director at Benetton Group and Prada Group, in more than thirty years, Ginette has worked on many aspects of graphic communication like identity, publishing, packaging, wayfinding, exhibit design and environmental graphics. Among her clients: Barilla, Bulgari, Fabriano Boutique, Ferragamo, Knoll, Moleskine, San Carlo, Swatch, TV5 and Vatican.
She was chosen as part of the team to design the pluri-awarded Holy See (Vatican) Pavillion at Expo Milano 2015.
Her works have been published, exhibited and awarded internationally.
Speaker at international design conferences, she regularly takes part to international design juries.
Contract professor at IUAV-Istituto Universitario di Venezia from 2010 to 2015, she held workshops and lectures in Canadian, Chinese, French, Swiss, Tunisian and Turkish design universities.

She has been elected by her peers to membership at the “Royal Canadian Academy of Arts” and selected as one of the eight “International Ambassador Canada 150” by the Minister of Canadian Heritage as Canada marks 150th anniversary of Confederation.
