THE PROGRAMPROGRAM COVERSDESIGN TECHNOLOGY ALUMNI SUCCESS
Every day, a tidal wave of web content, video, and print passes before our eyes. Everywhere you look, graphic design is there. The challenge is to get the world to pause for more than a second, to watch, or to read the information. This is what inspires graphic designers. They create idea-driven visual communications, coming up with fresh techniques to magnify images to best communicate messages.

You are a digital dreamer and see personality in typefaces. You love technology and the advances in the field. You are a visionary and an artist. Whether you are working on a Web site, logo or business card, it is up to you, as the problem-solver, to organize, interpret, and magnify the images to best communicate your message. This is your life. This is your dream. OWN IT.
