This is disappointing. If your still interested or if anyone is interested in getting this going I would be game. After attending a IDSA presentation in Seattle last year I became very aware of the lack of a design scene in Vancouver. Makes me sad.


.... yup that's why i left and never looked back. there's simply aren't enough companies locally to support ID.

I think getting the Vancouver design scene going would be fantastic!

I highly highly encourage professionals in the Vancouver area to interact with Emiy Carr's design students. That is where a lot of the energy is to get involved and develop a broader community.

Mmmm. Vancouver is really far from the rest of the world, ha? Well guess what, friend of mine , who is a graphic designer, traveled all the way to Vancouver for some local design event. That must be a special place..

- flashing green light means you have the right-of-way to make a left turn
- Loonies and Toonies have been around for at least a decade now; they're more robust then paper money

Interesting, I had no idea that's what the flashing green light meant, I was guessing it was a warning it was about to turn red. :oops:

Actually it means it is a pedestrian controlled cross walk. I know in Ontario that usually means a left turn signal.......

That sounds like bad UI design, someone visiting from Ontario could cause a serious wreck, eh?
