Graphic Design

Creating Visual Stories, Driving Brand Success

The CTE Graphic Design program allows students to unleash their creativity and become visual storytellers. Graphic designers are the creative geniuses behind logos, ads, websites, and product packages, transforming ideas into visually stunning realities. Think of iconic logos such as Nike™ or Microsoft™ – the work of graphic designers surrounds us everywhere we look - in magazines, brochures, online and more.

In this class, students dive into the exciting realm of visual communication, learning the art of using colors, photos, fonts, and graphics to convey powerful messages. Graphic designers shape the identity of products, services, and companies, influencing, informing, and entertaining the public. A design project encompasses various elements such as photos, text, drawings, and layout design, all skillfully brought together into a polished final product, whether in print, on a webpage, or through other visual mediums.

Equipped with Adobe Suite tools like InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop, students explore the design process – from generating creative ideas to bringing them to life. This class opens doors to diverse career paths, including freelance work, marketing, interior design, videography, photography, and more.
