The UFV Graphic + Digital Design program is holding an information session and portfolio workshop, Feb. 7.
The program, up and running since September 2012, is aimed at producing graphic designers who are ready to create visual communication in all media platforms — print, digital, interactive, environmental and social.
Located at UFV’s Mission campus nestled in the foothills above Fraser River in the Heritage Park Centre, the program offers a Macintosh studio environment and instructors who are creative professionals working in the creative industry.
UFV is recruiting for its fall intake of graphic design students and is inviting the community to the Mission campus to introduce UFV’s graphic design programs, showcase student work and participate in a workshop on how to prepare an entrance portfolio.
The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Mission campus at Heritage Park Centre.
The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with an introduction to careers in the creative industry and information about the Graphic and Digital Design diploma as well as the graphic design minor and extended minor options within the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. A portfolio workshop will follow at 7:30 p.m. that will cover how to put an entrance portfolio together with instructors offering expertise on what a successful portfolio looks like. This is a hands-on workshop where attendees are invited to share their work to receive constructive feedback.
