(How to use the Member Directory)
NOTE: Not all ADC members are listed in the online database. Please contact the office if you would like to confirm membership status.
Do you know the designer's First or Last name?
Simply type the name into the appropriate search field. It's better to search by either first or last name (not both). The search will bring up a short list of all the designers with that name (whether that name is "Joe" or "Smith"). Then you can select the one you recognize by clicking the "View Details" link on the right hand side.
Do you want to search for designers based in a particular City?
Leave all the other fields blank and type the name of the City into the appropriate field.
Do you want to search for designers based in a particular Province?
Leave all the other fields blank and type the full name of the Province ("Alberta" rather than "AB") into the appropriate field.
How to search for Designers by discipline (Set, Costume, Lighting, Projection, Sound)
Need a Set Designer and don't care where they live? Leave all the other fields blank and put a checkmark next to "Set Design". You'll get the complete list of ADC Set Designers. Click the "View Details" link on the right to find out more about any given designer.
Need a Costume Designer based in Vancouver? Type "Vancouver" in the City field, and put a checkmark next to "Costume Design". You'll get a list of all the ADC Costume Designers in Vancouver.
Need someone who can design both Lighting AND Projection? Leave all the other fields blank and put checkmarks next to "Lighting Design" and "Projection Design". You'll get a list of all the folks who can do BOTH those jobs for you.
When in doubt, make your search LESS SPECIFIC. That way you'll get a list of designers to choose from.
