CNC graphic design students to host year-end showcase

The evening includes student work in graphic design, web design, animation, interactive digital media, illustration, and typography produced from both class assignments and practicum placements.

"The year-end showcase is a great opportunity for our second-year students to share their hard work with friends, family, and potential employers," said program coordinator and instructor Sean Siddals. "It's also a chance for the community and prospective students to see what we do in the web and graphic design program."

For the showcase, second year student Kyrsia Primus produced an original children's book titled Armchair Adventures: Journey to Rufftonia.

Growing up, Primus was captivated by the stories her grandfather would tell her as a child. Keeping that tradition alive, she crafted stories to tell her nieces and nephews during weekly family dinners. From this, the Armchair Adventures was born.

"We were sitting in a big armchair one night so I made up a story about an armchair that turned into a spaceship," Primus said. "It took the kids off to have all these adventures."

The project challenged her to use many of the skills learned in the program. The book's illustrations were initially sketched by hand and painted in Adobe Photoshop. She used Adobe Illustrator to create the armchair's dome, Adobe Character Animator and Adobe After Effects to create an Armchair Adventures animation, and Adobe InDesign to layout the book.

"Overall, it was a really good learning experience," she said. "I'm very excited to showcase it and put it out there to the world."

The community is invited to attend the showcase, which features work from Harshpreet Kaur, Taylor Raymond, Krysia Primus, Chintan Gohil, Amber Boileau, Andrew Walker, Damon Robinson, Nitin Sarangal, Manjinder Dhaliwal, Jaymes Pattie, and Kiana Fergusson.

The show takes place at the Elks Hall, 663 Douglas St., with a drop-in session from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. before the show's main event at 7 p.m.
