Digital Graphic Designers learn to communicate through graphics. It involves using visual material incorporating words and images to convey a message or instruction.
The field of Digital Graphic Design and Imaging encompasses all phases of the process from origination of the idea through reproduction, finishing, and distribution of products or electronic transmission. Projects are endless: Fliers, Menus, Booklets, Calendars, Clothing, Blankets, Plaques, Phone Covers, and so much more! Digital Graphic Design and Imaging is a growing field in which people earn a living in Marketing Agencies, Quick Print, Commercial Printing, Screen Printing, or one of the many other industries.
