Inspirational talks can take all sorts of forms. Here at E3C, we like to keep things informal and cozy! In November we held our first “Design Drink & Discuss”. This new talk series brings designers and other creative professionals together. The purpose? To be inspired by the experiences of other local creatives. Read More

A few months ago I was sitting down with an E3C member to help them work out some ideas surrounding blogging. They were looking at starting to blog as a companion to their work as a designer and illustrator but they were stuck on one detail; where to start.
Michael Lei has an extensive career as a 3D modeler and currently works at DHX media. In this career he has discovered the importance of knowing the tools of your community, and always searching for something new to learn. In fact with his huge range of experience we have two distinct topics for two distinct articles from just one interview. Here, we’ll talk about the tools and community that surround 3D animation.
In the creative world, your portfolio is your resume, summarizes your ability and illustrates your knowledge of design principles (or the principles of your discipline). You’ll hear the words “show, don’t tell”, often because we are in the business of being visual communicators.

As usual, we held this event at The Foggy Goggle and much art-ing was done and fun was had. This year, however, we also decided to do a little bit of giving back. We do a lot of work with people within our artistic community, Read More
In less than five weeks, I’ll be done my work term and officially completed my two year graphic design program. Which is crazy. If you would have asked me several years ago if this is where I imagined I’d be, I wouldn’t dream of it. I always knew I wanted to be involved in the arts, but it wasn’t until my first year at NSCC in the Applied Media and Communication Arts program that I really got a sense of what I could do. One little taste of design and I was hooked immediately.

Whether you’re thinking of taking the program, you’re interested in design, or you’re already a designer, I hope that some of the things I’ve learned will be helpful. Read More
