Students in Graphic Design Technology gain the interactive, research, design, and technical skills necessary to create graphic solutions for clients. Core topics include publication production, visual literacy, typography, and layout design. Through incorporation of these topics, students complete projects focused on logo design, corporate identity, packaging design, and/or interactive technologies. Graphic Designers work closely with their clients and must be strong communicators in order to achieve the client's objectives successfully.
