As human beings and consumers, we are surrounded by graphic design. Whether the medium is television, magazines, books, street signs, movies, CD covers, computer games or the internet, we rely on graphic designers to help us access and make sense of the massive amount of information that bombards us daily. Today's graphic designer is equal parts artist, communicator and marketer, someone who understands different audiences and who has the varied skills to communicate over multiple mediums. The designer's broad visual and technical skills are valued by corporations, product manufacturers, advertising agencies, design firms and industries needing individuals who work fluently with multimedia and emerging technologies.
