Art for the real world


Graphic Communications

Graphic lab computers Graphic design is everywhere. Look around. How many logos can you see? Every book cover, CD cover, magazine was designed by someone. Every tee shirt with a design and web page was created by graphic designer. You may have heard the the internet killed paper products, but there are more books and magazines published than ever before.
