Design a Brilliant Career Path

Graphic designers – or graphic artists – plan, analyze, and create visual solutions to communications problems. They find the most effective way to get messages across in print, electronic, and film
media using color, type, illustration, print and layout techniques. An increasing number of graphic designers also develop material for Internet Web pages, interactive media, and multimedia projects. Students learn the concepts of color and design using industry standard computer graphics applications. The goal is to provide students with knowledge and skills required for entry level
positions or admissions to post-secondary programs in a variety of fields.
