Design & Graphics Technology
The Design & Graphics Technology field is changing rapidly. Today’s industry includes not just the world of print and digital, but also new and blended media, and augmented and virtual environments.
Skilled designers continue to be in demand. The Bureau of Labor Statistics is projecting more than 11,000 new designers will be needed by 2026.* And today’s graphic designers need to understand both design principles and methods as well as master technical skills.
Designers are people who love the challenge of creating visual communications in new, clear, and appealing ways. They are curious about the visual world and enjoy solving problems. They can look at things from the perspective of the end user and are good at managing both the design process and the relationship with the client.
