Once upon a time we were a traditional graphic design program. We taught type and layout and illustration, and our students made beautiful things for print.
But the world has changed a lot in the last few years. Today, designers need a broader range of skills than ever before. Skills like motion, animation, e-publishing, and social media. As a result, we’ve expanded our program into something new, something bigger than just graphic design.
We call it Graphic + Media Design.
The Graphic + Media Design program at Sage reflects our vision for the designer of tomorrow, an artist equally at home in graphic design, interactive design, motion design and illustration/image design.
Our students hit the ground running in the freshman year, where they build a foundation in each of the four core areas. These skills are refined and developed in the sophomore and junior years, and by the senior year they’re ready to take on year-long, in-depth capstone projects that break down traditional media boundaries. Graphic + Media Design graduates leave our program ready to enter the design profession as creative problem solvers and self-reliant critical thinkers.
(And they get good jobs when they graduate.)
We’ve been at this a while. Our graphic design program has been around for over thirty years, and we’re accredited by the prestigious National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). Our program features:
- A unique emphasis on print, web, motion and image making
- Excellent, practicing faculty
- Internship opportunities with regional, national, and international companies
- Technical and creative skills to be work-ready immediately upon graduation
- Professional portfolio development and comprehensive reviews by professional organizations such at the Art Director’s Club and AIGA
- Guest speakers, trips to NYC and regional exhibits, and an active student AIGA chapter
- Small classes to ensure personal relationships with faculty
