IDEA School of Design

  • The IDEA School of Design houses a 4-year Bachelor of Design in Visual Communications, with concentrations in branding, illustration, and interactive design. More information about the program can be found on this website, or by contacting the department at 604.990.7820.

    It’s always a good idea to visit a prospective school, so please consider attending one of our Open Studio days, when you can hear a program presentation, meet students, tour the studios, participate in a drawing session, and get some friendly feedback on your portfolio. There will be two Open Studio dates for Fall 2018 entry:  Saturday November 4, 2017 and Saturday February 24, 2018. Please call us if you can’t make these dates and would like some in-person advice from one of our instructors. 

    Entry is competitive and applicants must submit a portfolio and other documents through the online portal SlideRoom. Please refer to the  Portfolio Requirements page for more information on what is expected of the portfolio submission and admission deadlines.
