CNC’s web and graphic de­sign stu­dents are shar­ing two years of work with the com­mu­nity dur­ing a year-end show­case on Satur­day.

The evening in­cludes stu­dent work in graphic de­sign, web de­sign, an­i­ma­tion, in­ter­ac­tive dig­i­tal me­dia, il­lus­tra­tion, and ty­pog­ra­phy pro­duced from both class as­sign­ments and practicum place­ments.

“The year-end show­case is a great op­por­tu­nity for our sec­ondyear stu­dents to share their hard work with friends, fam­ily, and po­ten­tial em­ploy­ers,” said pro­gram co­or­di­na­tor and in­struc­tor Sean Sid­dals. “It’s also a chance for the com­mu­nity and prospec­tive stu­dents to see what we do in the web and graphic de­sign pro­gram.”

For the show­case, sec­ond year stu­dent Kyr­sia Primus pro­duced an orig­i­nal chil­dren’s book ti­tled Arm­chair Adventures: Jour­ney to Ruffto­nia.

Grow­ing up, Primus was cap­ti­vated by the sto­ries her grand­fa­ther would tell her as a child. Keep­ing that tra­di­tion alive, she crafted sto­ries to tell her nieces and neph­ews dur­ing weekly fam­ily din­ners. From this, the Arm­chair Adventures was born.

“We were sit­ting in a big arm­chair one night so I made up a story about an arm­chair that turned into a space­ship,” Primus said. “It took the kids off to have all these adventures.”

The project chal­lenged her to use many of the skills learned in the pro­gram. The book’s il­lus­tra­tions were ini­tially sketched by hand and painted in Adobe Pho­to­shop. She used Adobe Il­lus­tra­tor to cre­ate the arm­chair’s dome, Adobe Char­ac­ter An­i­ma­tor and Adobe Af­ter Ef­fects to cre­ate an Arm­chair Adventures an­i­ma­tion, and Adobe InDe­sign to lay­out the book.

“Over­all, it was a re­ally good learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence,” she said. “I’m very ex­cited to show­case it and put it out there to the world.”

The com­mu­nity is in­vited to at­tend the show­case, which fea­tures work from Harsh­preet Kaur, Tay­lor Ray­mond, Primus, Chin­tan Go­hil, Am­ber Boileau, An­drew Walker, Da­mon Robin­son, Nitin Saran­gal, Man­jin­der Dhali­wal, Jaymes Pat­tie and Kiana Fer­gus­son.

The show takes place at the Elks Hall, 663 Dou­glas St., with a drop-in ses­sion from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. be­fore the show’s main event at 7 p.m.


Col­lege of New Cale­do­nia de­sign stu­dent Kyr­sia Primus wrote and il­lus­trated a chil­dren’s book – Jour­ney to Ruffto­nia – as her yearend project. Primus and her fel­low stu­dents will show­case their work dur­ing an event on Satur­day.
