I am an award winning Graphic Designer and crafty night owl. A world traveler and lover of the outdoors, I always seem to be crafting or making something, no matter where I am. My two older rescue dogs are my favorite studio collaborators, and my biggest cheerleaders. I am deeply inspired by vintage and antique design, and have a growing collection of advertising ephemera. I enjoy hand making my own photo props for graphic design projects, and finding effective, collaborative, and creative solutions when problem solving.
You will be introduced to the range of opportunities in this field: design of print-generated and computer-generated graphics for books, newspapers, magazines, web applications and marketing materials; and additional design applications for point-of-purchase, packaging and outdoor advertising.
Today’s digital world reduces the geographic limits for finding clients. Employers include advertising agencies, corporations and nonprofit groups.
You can earn the Production Artist technical diploma on the way to completing the Graphic Design associate degree.
