Graphic Design

Photo by Will Wrobel

Graphic design is about visual communication, creating the kind of impact you see almost anywhere you look—company logos, advertisements, books, magazines, signs, posters, websites, product design and packaging. But it's about more than just creating something that looks pretty—it’s understanding how to pull a number of elements together—typography, photos, colors, and illustrations, for example—to form an effective whole. The results can be deceptively simple, eye-catching, or surprisingly clever. Done well, good graphic design sends the right message to the right audience.

As a Graphic Design student at Keene State, you'll learn to integrate form and information for effective visual communication, to develop your own unique style and voice, building an understanding of such areas as design history and theory, interactive design, product development design, motion graphics and 3D design, form, color, typography, photography, and illustration.

Students can pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts or a Bachelor of Arts degree, or a Studio Art and Graphic Design dual option. You can also minor in Art History and Studio Art.
