Our Graphic Design curriculum integrates the roles of designer, artist and entrepreneur.

Guided by faculty members who are noted professionals in their fields, students develop sophisticated typographic and image-making skills working across both emerging and traditional media to create emotionally resonant messages. ArtCenter's Graphic Design program has assigned faculty directors for each area of emphasis, from transmedia to typography, allowing students to expand their creative skillset in an integrative environment that crosses all media. Additionally, our department features one of the College's largest core of full-time faculty and one of the largest part-time faculty teams—all of whom are currently working as creative professionals.
