Graphic Design

Graphic Designers use visual imagery to communicate ideas, promote products, and create brands. Through designing posters, books, catalogs, logos, ads, and cards, visual representation is created. Designers work in-house for companies, design firms, and as freelance designers. At CCA, students will develop the ability to design efficiently, incorporate text with imagery, use design software, and interface effectively with business clients and marketing teams.
