Through a new partnership with Top Level Design and their registrar, Porkbun, RGD is able to offer RGD members discounts on .design domain names.
.design offers an innovative, brandable and meaningful competitive advantage. Unlike .com, .org or .net, the recently added .design is the only top-level domain that explicitly identifies designers. Your web and email addresses can be as unique and creative as your designs. Imagine the power of www.YOURNAME.design.
As a member of RGD, you’ll get your first year of domain registration and email free at RGD.design, and 40% off annual domain renewal and hosted email as long as you’re an active member of RGD!

Design, in its broadest sense, is the enabler of the digital era – it’s a process that creates order out of chaos, that renders technology usable to business. Design means being good, not just looking good.
- Clement Mok, Graphic Designer
“This free domain is a fantastic RGD member benefit. It helps me get my name recognized as a designer and differentiates my website from others because of the .design instead of the .com url. I am able to portray my true professional side, and it makes me feel like I am part of an exclusive graphic designer club!”
-ERICK MCMANUS, ERICKMCMANUS.DESIGN
“As a designer, I jumped at the opportunity to have a .design domain name. The .design domain allows people to make that important and immediate connection between your name (or business name) and what you do: design! For me, timing-wise, it couldn’t have been more serendipitous; I was in the midst of re-branding my freelance business to my name and I had just completed a web development course at HackerYou. I was able to register the .design domain name, build my site and then launch robfujimoto.design!”
-ROB FUJIMOTO, ROBFUJIMOTO.DESIGN
“Creating a website using the free domain provided by RGD has been a great opportunity for a junior design like myself because it allows me to include my portfolio, contact information and a background about myself all in one convenient place. This website opens up a lot of opportunities for me by allowing me to send out my website URL to potential clients and/or employers instead of creating a physical portfolio. I can now share my work with more people and help get my name out in the design world.”
-TAYLOR SARGENT, TAYLORSARGENT.DESIGN
“It is greatly important to have a personal site to display all of your countless hours of hard work, and to be able to keep it up to date. This RGD member benefit is a great stepping stone for Provisional and Student RGD members to be encouraged to start and keep a personal site live and up to date throughout their career.”
-MICHELLE WILLSON, WILLSON.DESIGN
