Early Applications for Fall 2019 open Friday, November 2, 2018

Study Design in Vancouver!

Entry to the Bachelor of Design program at Capilano University is competitive, and applicants must submit a portfolio and other documents through the online portal SlideRoom.

Please submit no fewer than 15 images of recent work, which may be self-generated or assignments from school or another program. We suggest a minimum of 3 drawings. The remaining submissions can be any combination of photography, painting, design, video, 3D work (e.g. jewellery, sculpture), collage, animation or interactive design (e.g. website, app). The purpose of your portfolio is to demonstrate your creative potential. We assess portfolios on drawing skill, design and creativity.

Not sure what to include in a portfolio? See Portfolio Requirements for additional guidelines.

Shown above is an adventurous sample from a student application portfolio on SlideRoom. It’s a purple acrylic pour with silicone, which gave it a cell-like effect, and measures 16 x 20. The student who created it, Katrina Lashmar, was admitted into the program this fall.

We encourage applicants to include a range of work—abstract pieces like this, along with more realistic drawing or painting, photography, a page you’ve designed for your yearbook, a logo or t-shirt design for a friend, 3D work, even a short video.

Shown below is a fan art painting from a student application portfolio on Slideroom. It’s a Photoshop painting by Teresa Cantu, now in her 3rd year at IDEA School of Design.
