Graduating Graphic Design students show their design thinking talents

2016-04-21
St. Lawrence College is pleased to present an exhibition of the work of the 26 soon-to-be graduates of the Graphic Design program. A special opening will be held on April 23, 8 pm in Davies Hall, and the exhibition will be on view in the Alumni Fireside Lounge until April 29.

On display will be final portfolio works in interaction design, print media and book design, packaging, brand identity design, and more. The centrepiece of the exhibition once again this year will be the students' final Capstone projects using the design thinking and research process to solve user-centered design problems. The Graphic Design program is a generalist program, according to program coordinator, Erin Boyce.

“Our students learn to design for both print and digital media and for a range of clients. They graduate prepared to work in a variety of facets of the industry; in branding agencies, design studios, marketing/advertising shops, print publishers, interaction design agencies, or even in-house in creative services departments of various companies. Many graduates also go on to freelance or start their own businesses; in a fast-changing and high-demand field like graphic design there are lots of possibilities, and we are very excited to see them launch their careers.” All are welcome to attend the show, and admission is free!
