Despite the best efforts of 2020 2021 2022, this year's Graphic Design class is ready to go! Think you've already seen what we have to offer? It's time to Stay Tuned, the 2022 VIU Graphic Design Grad Show!
Featuring the creative design work they built during their time at VIU, each of the graduating students is here to show off the skills and enthusiasm they developed during their four years in the Graphic Design program.
Lead by grad show committee members Mary-margret Degraaf, Tara Jakubiec, and Malcolm Simard, the students decided that Stay Tuned! Best reflected the challenges they faced—and overcame—during the past few years.
Stay Tuned for what they will create in the real world, in their prosperous careers ahead.

I love graphic design.
Who is not made happy by clear signage or a beautiful dust jacket? I often choose between two similar products based on the quality of the design. And I am always trying to figure out ways to repurpose well-designed packages.
Your work contributes so much to our built and virtual worlds. Your work guides and inspires us and encourages us to see things afresh. You can manipulate the way we will receive an idea by creating emotional associations for it that bypass our rational selves. Use your mighty powers to be a force for good!
As you head out into your future I have these wishes for you: may your fonts always align, and your colours print true, and may you all wayfind well…”
My best to you all,
Congratulations to the class of 2022; it's been a pleasure working with you these last four years. I remember meeting you in year 1, term 1, day 1—just starting your adventure and naturally unsure about what it means to be a designer. Fast forward 4 years—add a pandemic and a challenging and uncertain few years to the experience—and looking at you today and the work you present here, rest assured, you are thoughtful, adaptable, creative and skilled designers. Tune in and turn up the volume—embrace your role, take pride in your work, and do your job well. The future will always remain uncertain, but you've demonstrated that you can manoeuvre positively through just about anything.
We, the graduating class of 2022, would like to thank the people that have provided us with invaluable support over the years, including our profs, family, friends and co-workers. We couldn’t have done it without you!
