Graphic design is an indispensable component of the way our world communicates and does business—from traditional marketing and promotional materials, to phone apps and smart device interfaces, to package design and promotional material, to full scale brand identity design and advertising campaigns. As a graphic designer, you will apply your artistic skills and knowledge as you shape visual messages to engage and communicate effectively with the intended audiences, helping the world communicate visually.

Collin College’s Graphic Design Program prepares you to enter the expanding world of visual communication as you learn the essential design and art direction concepts and processes that will allow you to meet your individual career needs. The program emphasizes strong concept development and production techniques, while exploring applications including logo design and brand identity, collateral design, advertising, packaging, promotion, Web development, and interface design.
