Graphic Design field utilizes artists who can apply their skills to the selling of products and services. This field is characterized by a constant need for creative freshness in visual communication techniques brought on by the proliferation of consumer products and services, cyclical changes in fashion and style, and the worldwide growth of communication technology. Students of Graphic Design are confronted with the need to develop heightened sensitivity to color, design, graphic production techniques, and a broad vocabulary of imagery.

The program in Graphic Design balances the complementary facets of creative discipline and contemporary perceptions with studies in necessary techniques such as computer graphics, typography, lettering, layout, principles of advertising and marketing, package design, photographic applications, and graphic production. They are then applied to such arenas as television, corporate identity, media advertising, promotional pamphlets, brochures and packaging, technical illustration, and sign graphics. Students who complete the Graphic Design program may free-lance their skills, or be employed on a salaried basis in corporate or other business sectors.

Independent design studios, advertising agencies, publishing houses, government agencies, and industrial corporations are examples of those that seek the services of free-lance and staff graphic designers.

Their design services vary from in-house projects to public need, and run the visual gamut from graphic budget presentations (e.g., graphs, charts, illustration) to concepts in traffic management or packaging of industrial products. In addition, knowledge of graphic production processes may lead interested Paier graduates into areas of sales and management, or may make them attractive candidates for various design training programs offered by large printing firms or film studios. Their beginning roles will depend upon the size of the organization that they join, or the nature of their free-lance work. However, their developed skills and knowledge should allow them to advance competently to increasingly more complex professional work.

About Paier College of Art, United States

Paier College of Art takes pride in over sixty years of training and educating artists. We are proud of the achievements of our students and alumni. These individuals continue to receive high recognition from organizations representing the best in their chosen fields. Paier students and alumni continue to enjoy successful careers in the visual arts.

Although the tools and methods of art are constantly changing, the strengths of our college have not. Computers have indeed become an important part of the artist's portfolio. These technologies are reflected in all our departments, and the computer labs are well equipped with the current hardware and software.

However, at Paier, computers are not an exclusive focus. In many respects, as the power of digital imaging and communication increases, the need for artistic fundamentals becomes even more important.

Recognizing that, our Foundation Year studies are still executed in pencil, pen, brush, and camera. The General Education Department also offers challenging courses in the liberal arts, contributing to the development of the literate artist. Those who have the desire and ability to develop as artists are a select few. Paier College is dedicated to them—the future leaders in craft, communication, and culture.
