Graphic Design & Digital Media:
Every book, magazine, poster, advertisement, logo, website, product graphic, or exhibit design began as a creative spark in the mind of a graphic designer.
The work of today's graphic designers spans an exciting array of media, from conventional printing to emerging digital platforms; that dynamic landscape combined with the timeless quality of graphic design—mixing words and images to communicate visually—assures a rewarding career of disseminating ideas, knowledge and opinions, to a global audience.
From graphic identity systems to books, magazines, newspapers; from print and television advertisements to Web sites and electronic publications; from sports products and package design to exhibits and museum displays—the world of possibility for well-educated and highly skilled graphic designers and digital media specialists is wide open.
