Graphic Design Schools

Graphic design, a very broad area of study, is very much in demand with today’s computer technology, and therefore, more graphic design schools are sprouting up in many cities around the world.

There are specialty graphic design schools that are focused on visual media production, graphic design programs offered at traditional colleges and universities, and art schools that offer graphic design options.

A student can complete his or her work in the classroom or online, and there are many online graphic design schools and programs to choose from. Many graphic design schools offer certificates in a certain area of graphic design, or degrees.

Graphic design schools are usually quite good at placing students after graduation, or at least allowing students opportunities to network. Graphic design is one of the most sought-after areas of study today, because there are diverse fields and companies which require graphic designers, as well as many opportunities for graphic designers to work privately.

Some of the places graduates from graphic design schools end up working in:

  • Advertising agencies
  • Design studios
  • Publishing Houses
  • Corporate Communications
  • TV Studios
  • Desktop Publishing

Advertising agencies often hire new graduates from Graphic Design Schools to work along with writers and senior graphic designers on advertising campaigns. Once an employee has shown his or her skill, it is possible to design an entire advertising campaign without a supervisor.

Graphic designers are responsible for giving life to ideas and communicating concepts visually. Whether someone needs a new logo for a product or an idea for a cover of a new novel, graphic designers are needed to catch the eye of the consumer.

Computer technology provides constant work for graphic designers, as more people are in need of website designers and animators. It is no wonder that artists who want to turn their talent into a marketable skill turn to graphic design schools.
