This one or two-year design program offers students the opportunity to learn artistic theory, develop creative thinking and gain technical skills in industry standard software. Through a diverse project base the program’s curriculum balances the creative and technical aspects of design. Students will design a variety of projects including posters, brochures, newsletters, invitations, book covers, logos, menus, product packaging, short animations, web graphics, and digital image retouching/editing. Many of these projects will be actual live jobs from partner schools and the community. Equipped with iMacs, printers, and Adobe design software, the Graphic Design studio is dedicated to encompassing technology and cultivating creativity among students. Students, in good standing have the opportunity to earn certification for Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) and pass an Assessment with PrintED/SkillsUSA. Students can earn up to 12 credits from Southern Maine Community College if they complete both years of the graphic design program.
