Graphic Design

Instructor demonstrating a process on the computer

Graphic Design students learn to use design as a means of communicating and solving complex ideas in a visual format. Our dedicated faculty teach the foundations of organizing text, illustrations and images to create messages that inspire, inform, and motivate. Students develop the intellectual and creative abilities to adapt and apply design principles to both print and digital media. The design classroom is equipped with 15 workstations with the most up to date iMacs and software, large-format scanners and inkjet and laser printers which adequately serves the academic needs of our students.
