Vancouver, BC – Langara College students were well represented at CityStudio Vancouver HUBBUB 19 this week.

The Integrated Marketing Communications students behind You're About to Go Blue - Roselle, Ann, Marjorie, and Estefanny - were awarded the CityStudio Vancouver Staff Pick award for their "beautifully haunting visuals" and for inspiring us to reimagine life for residents in Vancouver with rising sea levels in a very real way. The project itself is a marketing campaign depicting visuals of Vancouver with higher water levels in an effort to promote living a more eco-conscious lifestyle.

Langara College faculty members Drew Egan and Mike Smith-Cairns worked in collaboration with City of Vancouver staff Brad Badelt, Assistant Director, Sustainability, to support the students on their project. The Staff Pick Award recognizes a project that speaks to the CityStudio vision for a sustainable, equitable, and joyful Vancouver.
