Graphic Design Students at Algonquin College are prepared for graphic design careers, through strong, practical and theoretical training in typography, the basic fundamentals of creativity, design, image, form, and colour both in the classroom and online. The program includes extensive hands-on training in industry-standard software tools, which allow students to present their design solutions in a variety of formats.
Graphic designers are problem-solvers who research and manage visual design projects. They establish a project`s goals and objectives, analyze needs/problems, develop visual solutions, and prepare conceptual presentations for client approval, which range from sketches to prototypes to storyboards to interactive mock-ups.
Designers develop concepts in consultation with clients and work with photographers, illustrators, programmers, developers and other creative professionals to produce print and interactive work. Graphic designers focus on print media including brochures, logos and brand materials, promotional posters, signage, packaging, publication design, as well as web design, motion graphics and design for interactive media.
