Graphic Design Emphasis

Our graphic design curriculum explores visual communication through creative problem solving. Students explore principles of visual literacy, typography and layout design by completing projects on logo design, branding, editorial design, illustration, publication design, packaging design and interactive design. Classes are taught in a Macintosh computer lab with high-resolution scanners, laser and inkjet printers. All projects are completed using both hands on technical skills and Adobe software with emphasis on Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Dreamweaver.
