Christine Reimer

Online calling.

Christine Reimer, Publishing Alumna

Christine came to Langara wanting to work in book publishing or create book cover illustrations, but she discovered that the online world was her true calling.

After taking a few general arts courses, Christine chose Langara’s Publishing program for its diverse curriculum, which would allow her to develop editing and writing skills, and learn about design, typography, and production. But it was the web design and production courses that had the most impact.

These courses sparked a passion for website design that took her career in a new direction. After graduating in 2015, Christine went on to work at travel booking software company, Rezserve. Christine started at the company in a junior development position and now implements design and usability as Rezserve’s lead designer.

“In my day-to-day work I continue to use almost everything I learned, and I think that comes from very thoughtful curriculum planning for the industry that grads are headed for.”

Christine credits some of her success to the attention and care that she received from Langara instructors and continues to remain in contact with them today.

“The instructors are a wealth of information and they want to see you succeed. Ask questions, ask for advice, and work as hard as you can. The more you give to the program, the more you will get back.”
