As our methods of communication become increasingly mobile, we rely more and more on the art of design to communicate in creative and engaging ways. At the Cleveland Institute of Art, our Graphic Design curriculum takes into account these dramatic changes that are transforming the graphic design industry and the importance of clear visual communication.
As a Graphic Design major, you will explore both innovative and traditional methods of graphic design including typography, print and web design, package design, and signage. You will be introduced to forms, methods, conventional and experimental types of media, and concepts crucial to creative development, self-expression, and effective visual communication and production.
While we rely on the latest technology to build technical skills, our coursework allows you to explore and grow beyond these technologies. Your study will include:
As part of the design environment, you also will collaborate with Industrial Design and Interior Design students on projects and in the classroom. These opportunities as well as our integrated curriculum help you build valuable communication skills and develop techniques for presenting your ideas and final projects.
