The Graphic Design program at McKenzie College focuses on rigorous evaluation of how effective design is created. This involves learning the fundamentals of Graphic Design while practicing the most industry relevant, technical skills associated with each project our students complete.
Skilled designers are sharp and imaginative thinkers who are able to see the world from various points of view. They employ creative methods and critical thinking to design products that inspire audiences to move toward a desired objective. A designer’s goal is often to create a visual solution for a marketing or advertising purpose, to inform and persuade through visuals.
This diploma program provides students with a strong foundation in visual communication, design principles, as well as, professional business skills. Students are assigned a wide assortment of design projects that are common to the various industries they will work in upon graduation.
They will also have an opportunity to acquire real world knowledge through a possible internship with an advertising agency, printing house, production company or another related entity within the region.
