What Does a Graphic Designer Do?


Hyperactive is the best description of a digital designer. As the world moves more into the global multimedia matrix, designers need to stay attuned to the media that draw people in online and off. Back in the day of graphic designers, paper, X-acto knives and handwritten type were the norm. Now tablets, animation, vectors and the web are added to the mix. A well trained digital designer can do it all and feels comfortable moving from the real world to the virtual. They’ve become inventors, adding new ways to use old technology. Click on a city (look left) to see our exciting graphic design courses and other program details.
