This two-year design program offers students the opportunity to learn artistic theory, develop creative thinking techniques, and gain technical skills in industry standard software. Through a diverse project base the program’s curriculum balances the creative and technical aspects of design, which result in students who can produce innovative, sophisticated solutions from start to finish. Students will design a variety of projects including posters, brochures, newsletters, invitations, book covers, logos, menus, product packaging, short animations, web graphics, and digital image retouching/editing. Many of these projects will be actual live jobs from sending schools and the community. Students will manage project schedules while developing relationships with clients and vendors. Equipped with iMacs, printers, and essential design software like Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Flash and Dreamweaver, the Graphic Design studio is a space dedicated to encompassing technology and cultivating creativity among students.
