Imagine, Make, Write, Draw and Create… for Live Clients
We believe students learn best by doing and often working with actual clients. Imagine creating designs for Ponce City Market, social media assets for an international coffee company, or advertising campaigns for the National Park Service! Our students work with live clients all the time. You’ll graduate with the skills, confidence and connections you need to step into your dream job. When asked if you’ve graphic design work experience, your answer will be, “Yes I do.”
“To put it simply, the quality of the thinking and the level of creativity, passion and insight was nothing short of remarkable. The students displayed experience well beyond their years.”
