Graphic Design is a vital component of the communications people receive each day. Personal, professional, business and industry transactions could not exist without visual images. Today, graphic design has become a “high-tech” field and the technical skills and knowledge base necessary to produce visually rich products has grown astronomically. Graphic designers create visual concepts, by hand or using computer software, to communicate ideas that inspire, inform, or captivate consumers. They help to make an organization recognizable by selecting color, images, typography and logo designs that represent a particular idea or identity to be used in advertising and promotions.
In the Graphic Design program at Trenholm State Community College, students receive instruction in graphic design, illustration, 3D design, print design, web design, photography, video and new media, graphic image generation, and various other areas of study to stay abreast of the rapidly advancing technology in the Graphic Design industry.
With dedication and commitment to this program, a student will be able to achieve a degree of skill enabling him or her to graduate and obtain employment in the Graphic Design industry.
