AAS Graphic Design - 2018 Student Guide

Our world is designed. Graphic designers have had a hand in the look of virtually everything you see that is not a part of the natural world: signs, logos, products, websites, product packaging, album covers, publications. The list is endless. Even a soup can shows the work of a designer.

Graphic designers plan, analyze and create visual solutions to communications problems. They use color, type, illustration, photography, animation and print and layout techniques to get the message across, whether it is in print or electronic media.

Our graphic design program lets your talent in graphic design flourish and give you a solid art background, including design foundations, drawing, color theory, photography, printmaking, design software, web design, typography, and other graphic design courses.

Our Associate in Applied Science degree gives you ready access to jobs in the graphic design field. Graphic designers with a broad liberal arts education and experience in marketing and business management will be best suited for positions developing communication strategies.
