The students have been working hard to find new ways to showcase their work. You can check out our student work via our Instagram and portfolio websites.

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

Stop by the store and see her work near the main entrance. #IKEAWinnipegCoCreate

Sketch Day 2016

September 9, 2016

At the start of each year our graphic design students head out for our annual sketch day. We met today under cloudy skies at Assiniboine Park. By 11 am the sun came out to make for a beautiful day. The park offered a variety of locations: the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden, the English Garden and the zoo. We look forward to seeing the sketchbooks Monday morning.

BruceGilespie_Poster_Schumann2

Bruce Gillespie was an instructor at Red River College from 1989 until illness in 2007 left
him unable to continue teaching. Bruce left this mortal world in the spring of 2008 at the age of 57.

Over the course of his two decades at RRC, he crossed paths with hundreds of aspiring graphic designers, as a teacher, mentor, big brother and friend. In addition to teaching, Bruce is best remembered by most people for his encyclopedic knowledge of music, for his incredible album collection, and his own musical ability.

Application for the award is in the form of a poster that reflects on the marriage of music and art; collecting, giving, sharing, remembering and passion.

Previous winners are:
2014 Réanne Chamberland
2013 Steve Ramos
2012 Christian Gilbang
2011 Sam Giesbrecht
2010 Madison Zyluk
2009 Marie Hart
2008 Melissa Archer
