A Creative Mix

Concept to completion

In today’s graphic design world, it’s rarely either/or. A photo could be complemented by a digital illustration in an interactive layout that includes imbedded video and 2D animation.

It’s a creative mix of tools and techniques that lets you wear many design hats as you move skillfully from concept to completion. 

In our program, you’ll learn to pull it all together into an artful website, digital advertisement, social media post, YouTube video or whatever else you or client have in mind.
