Vancouver, BC – Students graduating from Langara’s Design Formation Program transformed their studio into a gallery space for Shift last week. The exhibit showcased portfolio work by each of the talented students completing the two-year program, resulting in a polished and eclectic collection ranging from graphic design work to conceptual interior pieces.

"The quality of work exemplified by this group of graduating students is remarkable," said Tomo Tanaka, Division Chair for the Creative Arts. "The Shift show was yet another example of how the Design Formation students continue to push the boundaries with regards to visual presentation."

The Design Formation Program at Langara merges the disciplines of spatial formation and communication design. This challenging area of design bridges architecture, industrial design, interior design, and graphic design. Students develop a wide-ranging set of skills that can be applied to everything from retail display and exhibit design to environmental graphic design, or as a basis for further study.
