IDEA School of Design

  • The IDEA School of Design houses a 4-year Bachelor of Design in Visual Communications, with concentrations in branding, illustration, and interactive design. More information about the program can be found on this website, or by contacting the department at 604.990.7820.

    It’s always a good idea to visit a prospective school, so please consider attending one of our Open Studio days, when you can hear a program presentation, meet students, tour the studios, and get some friendly feedback on your portfolio. Open Studio dates for Fall 2017 entry are Saturday November 5, 2016 and Saturday February 25, 2017. Please call us if you can’t make these dates and would like some in-person advice from one of our instructors. 

    Entry is competitive and applicants must submit a portfolio and other documents through the online portal SlideRoom. Please refer to the Portfolio Requirements page for more information on what is expected of the portfolio submission.

    The admission period for Fall 2016 is now closed, and the program is full.  There are a limited number of open seats for non-program students in the first year of the program.  Please refer to the myCap Schedule page or contact the department at 604.990.7820 or idea@capilanou.ca to inquire about availability.
