The graphic designer’s job is to make information useful by presenting it in an attractive, easy-to-read and understandable manner. In this way the designer has the ability to link a writer with the reader or a producer with the consumer. The results of the designer’s efforts are seen in forms ranging from: catalogs delivered to the door, packaging on store shelves, trade show exhibits, television commercials and websites designed with high-tech computer animation, graphics and moving graphics.
The graphic design program requires the study of drawing, design history, two-dimensional and three-dimensional structure, typography and photography. This visual commitment provides the student with the experience to uniquely capture the consumer’s attention, intrigue and make the consumer actively want to stop and read. This program includes professional practice courses on publication design, web design, portfolio development and career options.
