Graphic Design


[Tim Weaver speaking] Blinn College offers a two-year Graphic Design program and we’re here to equip students with the tools needed to work as a graphic designer in the workplace. Students are given an opportunity to work in traditional arts. We also go into the desktop publishing side of it, using Adobe products, Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop. And we give students the opportunity to mesh those two things together. So I think in summation, portfolio, problem-solving, and a good foundation in the traditional arts, that all comes together in this program. [Johnathan Murphy speaking] I was looking through the course catalogue at Blinn and I came across the graphic design program there. I expected Photoshop to be there, I expected Illustrator, maybe web design. But I was surprised to see photography, videography, and some of the other courses there. And that’s what inspired me to take this program. Graphic Design was important to me, because I felt accomplished at the end of the day. I can look at my work and say, “I did that.” [Marilyn Hodges speaking] At the beginning of this semester about two months ago, I started an internship with Alpha Graphics. My favorite part about the graphic design program is the feedback. You get feedback from the instructors, as well as from other classmates, and it is tremendous, because a lot of them are going to be the target audience for your graphic. [Johnathan Murphy speaking] I like it a lot. I still have a lot to learn, but Blinn has definitely set me on the right path in the graphic design field.
