Vancouver Island

About GDC Vancouver Island

Our chapter formed in 1993 so that designers, students and associates in related fields from Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands could get together, network, build our skill sets, show our work, and host professional development activities. The chapter breaks down the barriers that our competitive profession creates, and brings together creative individuals to spark ideas and camaraderie. Our mission is to nurture and enrich the local graphic design community, while also contributing as citizens of the national and international design industry.

Follow our chapter on social media to keep up with local graphic design community:
