All in Illustration
The first big design project for 2nd Year this term produced some great work. The students created annual and community reports that really highlighted their conceptual thinking, design and illustration skills. Shown above: Haluka Yagi (IDEA21) Annual Report Design for Braille Literacy Canada. Check out some of our favourites by Anna Tsybulnyk, Haluka Yagi, Sophie Young and Valeriya Kim!
This project dates back to Cynthia’s first year in IDEA and still keeps its place as one of the most memorable yet “mildly traumatizing” projects for her. She wanted to get more familiar with Adobe Illustrator so this was her opportunity. She kept with a simple theme of animals, limited herself to basic shapes and a limited palette.
The students in IDES 237 Digital Illustration were asked to create a short looping animated gif that reflected their experience as graphic design students. Nicole Shewchuk's 404 Error animated gif is shown above. Check out some of our favourites!
“Everything is still sunshine and rainbows” for Alice Zeng (IDEA18). She gets to work on a lot of different types of projects spanning a variety of mediums including illustration projects in conjunction with design and branding. "For someone who was torn for the longest time whether to go into design or illustration, being able to have a balance like that was essentially my dream" she says. Her advice to other students: “Hang in there, I promise the workload gets easier in the real world.” Catch up with Alice and her paper flower making skills!
Last year IDEA21 students designed album covers and mood boards that capture the spirit of the 1960s psychedelic art movement or the beatnik feel. Shown here is “Psychedelic Gaga” by Anna Tsybulnyk. Check more out!

Graduating in 2009 after the recession gave Darcy Clelland no choice but to pursue freelancing. Now loving life on Vancouver Island, he works for a new company that is making apps in the farming industry but he still gets excited when he sees the records, shirts, hats and general merch that he makes for his friends bands. Read his story.
IDEA School of Design grad Cristian Fowlie's playful, colour-driven works often find their way into the hands—literally—of readers, viewers, passersby, and even imbibers.
