Jumpstarting Graphic Design Careers
As the digital world becomes more immersive, job opportunities for graphic designers continue to grow, making now a great time for students to learn the tools of the trade. In the new Graphic Arts class, students are getting a hands-on experience in illustration, typography, branding, and more.
“Imagine the potential when they graduate and at 18 years old they are well-versed in software that designers use everyday, including InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop. Those are skills that will serve them well,” says Mia Chandler, the new Graphic Arts teacher who holds a degree in Graphic Design from Point Loma Nazarene University.
The future is interwoven with digital design practices in branding, packaging, web design, and print to name a few. With the world, literally at-their-fingertips, graphic design students are a step ahead and will soon find themselves on the front lines in defining what comes next.
