Vancouver Pro Musica is pleased to announce that Charmaine will be our Graphic Artist in Residence for the upcoming 2017/18 concert season! We’re really excited to begin working with Charmaine, and we’re look forward to seeing what she’ll create for us. Here’s a bit about her:

Charmaine Cheng is a freelance graphic designer and a current 3rd year student at the IDEA School of Design at Capilano University. Putting her skills in branding, illustration, and (the many facets of) design to use, she has worked with clients such as CAPIC, Cimorelli, and worked as an intern at Hangar 18 Creative Group. When she’s not sweating over her design work, she’s probably spending hours at a thrift store somewhere in the city.
