Choosing a Graphic Design School


Hands-on Experience

A good graphic design program will emphasize portfolio development. A portfolio is the best way to demonstrate your skills to a potential employer. As a graphic design student, you should learn and become proficient with a significant number of computer design programs, such as Illustrator, Quark Xpress, and Photoshop.

Your program’s curriculum should also include coursework that emphasizes creative and critical thinking You should have opportunities to learn outside the classroom through field trips and internships. And studio time is also critical – graphic design cannot be learned without hands-on experience.
