The Graphic Design program at CDI College is perfect for students wishing to pursue a career in the exciting field of graphic arts. This program provides the practical and technical skills necessary to pursue work with graphic design firms, advertising companies, or even contract work as a freelancer.
Students learn about the concepts of design, layout, colour theory, typography, prepress processes, presentation, advertising, and marketing. Students will become technically proficient with industry-recognized software like Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign for print production, and Dreamweaver, Flash, and ActionScript for web design.
Upon completion of the program, students will have assembled a portfolio that showcases their abilities to translate creative ideas into professional-quality print and web-based layouts and designs. Employers are always looking for previous work experience, so a professional portfolio helps CDI College grads show exactly what they are capable of.
