Wednesday, May 3rd, twelve seniors visited the Creative Center in Omaha, Nebraska. It is a small art college that focuses primarily on Graphic Design. They offer a 2 year Associate’s Degree, and a 3 year accelerated Bachelors Degree. The first year, students focus primarily on the elements and principles of art. Year two incorporates the computer element and digitally create designs geared toward consumers. Finally, year three is solely about business and marketing. It is where students learn how to apply their artistic skills to the workplace and, how to grow their own portfolio while working for a company in the graphic design field.
The students had many questions about tuition, financial aid, and acceptance to the program. We had a short activity on how the graphic design process works where the students learned how to target a focus group based on company needs.
Overall, the students had a great time and learned a lot about pursuing a career in graphic design. For more information check out their website at www.creativecenter.edu
