Visual language is a form of communication we use throughout the day without even realizing it. In Graphic Design, we use a mixture of technology, psychology, color theory, and basic art principles to communicate our wants and needs to each other and for our clients.
As the digital explosion continues, instructors and students have to not only stay abreast of the current technologies but research and watch trends. Students will take their designs from a hand-drawn rough sketch to digital production designing for the appropriate media outlet. With today's saturated market, standing out is harder than ever but with good branding practices and an understanding of how marketing begins and ends with design, Graphic Design students leave with the tools they need to help business do business.
Students work towards completing their Adobe Visual Design Certifications in Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.
The Fashion Design program covers concepts and skills related to the fashion industry. Some of the areas covered are apparel design, pattern making, textiles, styling, visual merchandising, and many other fashion career opportunities. We have fashion industry speakers, fashion related field trips, and do a fashion show as an end of the year project to feature your designs.
This course is designed to teach you every aspect of game design, not just programming. If you are willing to put forth the effort to create something new while understanding how the games you love earned that affection, then there is something here for you. Game theory, Python and Unity programming, 2D sprite design, 3D modeling, and quality assurance are just a sample of what we work towards understanding, but each serve an essential role within the industry. Students who continue on to the Practicum level will be tasked with managing a team to create a game for competition. Your game design resume starts here.
