Each year, the graduating students in CNC’s Web and Graphic Design Diploma Program host a portfolio showcase in-person and off campus that gives friends, family, potential employers, and anyone else who may be interested, an opportunity to come and experience all of their hard work first-hand.
“With the COVID-19 situation this year, this isn’t possible, so student have instead moved the entire experience online!” said program coordinator, Sean Siddals.
In this “virtual” portfolio showcase, you will see examples of web design, graphic design, illustration, 3D prototyping, interactive multimedia, personal branding, typography and much, much, more. This will also include work that has been done as part of the students’ final semester internship.
“This program has been a wonderful opportunity to build creative and practical skill sets in the world of design,” said Érika Lacaille, second-year web and graphic design student. “It has also allowed me to create a portfolio that I can be proud of. I am very thankful to have gotten the chance to intern with Shift Creative, as I now feel more prepared to work as a web and graphic design professional.”
The CNC Web and Graphic Design Program Digital Portfolio Showcase launches on April 25 at noon. At that time we invite you to head over to www.2020.webandgraphicdesign.ca/ to view our student portfolios and the journey they took to create this event. The class will also be recognizing the support of our generous sponsors who helped bring this event to life.
“The WEGD program taught me that being a good designer means problem-solving and creating something visually appealing and functional; being able to communicate through artistic expression, simply and effectively. It allowed me to further develop my skills in a friendly and creative space, and to learn all about the software that designers use daily in their careers,” said Ashley Stevens, second-year student.
If you plan to attend, let the class know on its Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/532516150800038/?active_tab=about.
“Graphic designers express their creativity every day and while designing, I always learn a lot of new techniques,” said Prabhjot Jassal, second-year student. “I really like this program because I don’t like to be cramming the subjects, I like practical things. Great design adds beauty to our life. The graphic designer will change the way you see the world.”
