Visual Communication Designers may design products such as trademarks, logos, brand and corporate identity materials, packaging and image design for products, posters, sign and way-finding systems, websites, motion graphics, diagrams, maps and graphs, publication design for books, magazines and brochures and promotional materials.
As a specialist in Visual Communication Design, you will develop advanced conceptual and technical skills through studio courses in photography, typography and new media. You will move from designing specific instructor-directed projects to creating complex visual communications using both traditional and digital methods and media. With each studio course, you will continue to develop aesthetic sensibilities and style.
As you progress through your design studies, you will find out how and why visual communication design is an essential part of our daily lives. You will be challenged to use your design skills to persuade, communicate specific messages, and inspire thought using symbols, words and images. Each experience will lead to a greater understanding of the strategies needed for effective problem-solving through the practical application of critical thought. Our program provides you with a technological environment that is current.
