Students interested in visual communications are drawn to the graphic design program because of its emphasis on both design, image, interactivity, motion graphics, and communications. Students can develop design skills for both print and multimedia environments, as they also develop communications writing skills, photography skills, and knowledge of communications law, ethics, and business. Our multimedia photography and design programs prepare students for creative careers by teaching both traditional storytelling and the latest technology. Graphic designers are a crucial link in the communications model, solving design problems for clients through agencies specializing in design, advertising or public relations. They are key to magazine and editorial design, and in web and multimedia design. Some designers cross media platforms by working independently as freelancers. As a graphic design student at Newhouse, you learn a multi-dimensional approach to visual communications. You study typography, layout, color, movement, space, visual hierarchy and use of imagery to create beautifully crafted and visually literate designs using state-of-the-art computer software programs. Working collaboratively on multiple platforms, you become a visual problem solver and communicator, capable of working in every phase of production from writing and editing to photographing, imaging and designing. You develop a versatile senior portfolio that will prepare you for career opportunities in almost every sector of the communications industry.
