Graphic Design

The Graphic Design program has a combined Macintosh lab/traditional studio space equipped with 20+ iMacs, black and white and color laser printers, a color projector for viewing digital work and lecturing, and 20 drafting tables. A second Mac lab has 15 iMacs and a projector. All labs are stocked with the full suite of Adobe software.

The Graphic Design studios, one a combined computer and desk studio and one a computer lab which is shared with Photography, are equipped with 21 2008 model iMac computer workstations, all of which run the latest Adobe Creative Suite Premium software (including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Flash, and Acrobat). All computers have access to the internet and art student server storage space through an Apple Airport wireless network, which students who bring in personal laptop computers may also access.

There is an installed overhead projector and five scanners, including one that can scan source material up to 11 x 17. There are five printers: one HP large format color plotter (up to 36 wide and 9 long), one 2400 dpi Xerox color printer (up to 11 x 17), one black-and-white HP laser printer (up to 11 x 17), and two 8.5 x11 HP black-and-white-printers. We also offer, in the same dedicated studio/lab workspace, 20 drafting desks, two large dry-erase boards, a light table, and a full wall bulletin board for critiques. There is a flat file for storing student work, as well as shelving and cabinets.
