Student Mural at IKEA

April 29, 2019

Design student Ayla Manning spent her three week work placement at IKEA in their communication and design department. She was tasked with designing a sustainability mural for their customer recycling area.

“I love Winnipeg, and I love telling stories about Winnipeg. This project was a dream come true – a chance to illustrate all the things I love about Winnipeg plus sustainability for a brand that’s been part of my life since before I could walk.”

“It was daunting, at first, to even think of illustrating on such a large scale. I got a lot of support from the IKEA team who helped me figure out how to think big. They showed me how to work my way up from small sketches to full-sized prints to create the full story.

-Ayla Manning
