Combining art and multimedia technology to communicate ideas and experiences
Key Program Features
Utilize your artistic talent and work with current technology in the creative field of graphic design! Carefully crafted visual elements can communicate messages via print or electronic media to inform or allure audiences. LLCC students are taught by faculty who are successful artists themselves. Students learn tools and techniques used in the industry, concepts based on the design environment and the application of design software so they can meet the challenges and demands of a constantly evolving job market. Our graduates leave prepared to work for an organization developing designs for ad campaigns; brand identity; books, magazines and newspapers; marketing materials; packaging; promotional displays; websites; video games; and more.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median annual salary for graphic designers was $47,640 in May 2016. Employment of graphic designers is expected to remain consistent through 2024.
