Associate of Arts in Graphic Design
Graphic designers are professional communicators who arrange text and images to convey a message to the viewer. Creative designers use a combination of type and images to visually communicate, both as an art form and advertising media, through various forms of print collateral and web pages. Graphic and web designers are employed by design firms and art departments within businesses and corporations. The scope of most graphic and web design positions is to design brand logos and corporate identities, books and book covers, magazines and publications, brochures, catalogs, posters, packaging ideas, websites, and more.
The graphic design program at Bauder College in Atlanta, GA is designed to offer a balanced and comprehensive course of instruction. The goal of this program is to provide an in-depth knowledge of the graphic and web design industry and encourage creativity while stressing technical and presentation skills. The traditional concepts of graphic design combined with current graphic and web design practices could help prepare you to become a competent and efficient creative designer.
Instructors guide you in exploring the many ways of developing and creating a range of design projects from concept to production, such as advertising campaigns, logos, packaging, posters, publications, and websites. You will have opportunities to interact with the active Advisory Board of the College, as well as with professionals through field trips and externships. In addition, you will have a chance to present and exhibit your design projects at Bauder College reviews and portfolio shows.
