Students seeking the Graphic Design AAS develop skills in graphic design, web design, page layout, typography, and digital media, as well as the teamwork, creative problem solving, and life-long learning skills essential to a successful creative career. Graphic Design students have course work in software tools, color theory, icon & logo design, illustration, and front-end Web design (HTML & CSS). During their second year, students have the opportunity to take classes in which they create design work for real clients (VC 272A Design Studio ), and in their final term take the capstone portfolio and business classes and participate in the portfolio show. Students work closely together in all classes, sharing common studio space and computer lab facilities. Opportunities to work in traditional media alongside new media abound in both required and elective classes. Students produce a print and/or digital portfolio of work, including a personal brand and website in preparation for entering the job market.
