Designers are creative thinkers and visual problem solvers who create graphic solutions. NCC offers talented students a solid education in the elements and principles of design, editorial design layout, typographic design, photography, web design, 3D computer animation and motion graphics. The curriculum prepares students with real-world, hands-on projects that address current industry trends and needs.
Graphic designers prepare artwork for many purposes, from video game design to web animation or print media. The designer’s process is a fascinating one, involving analyzing, brainstorming, and developing concepts that are "outside the box" and address the client's needs to market to a target audience in a visually compelling way. NCC invites students to immerse themselves in the hands-on learning and well-balanced education they'll receive through classroom and laboratory learning experiences.
Communication Design students exhibit their creative designs in Communications Hall and on the NCC Art Department web site. A portfolio review is the capstone experience in the Communications Design program. During this portfolio review, students have an opportunity to showcase their digital portfolios to professionals in the communication design industry in the Lehigh Valley.
