    Testimonials

    Joe Pelow, SLC Graphic Design grad, 2012
    Freelance Designer, Toronto

    Joe Pelow knew he wanted to get into graphic design, but when his first attempt at going to college didn’t work out, he took some time to work before trying again. “I worked retail for two years which really built up my motivation to want to go back to college for a second try,” Joe said.

    “When I was finally ready to go back to college, I chose SLC for two reasons. The first was that it was local and the second was because I had heard many great things about the program.”  After an engaging presentation by Professor Andrew McLachlan at his high school, Joe knew SLC would be the right choice.  “I think SLC should have been my first choice, but I thankfully made it there eventually.”

    According to Joe, the top three things about SLC’s Graphic Design Program are the professors, the evolving program, and the dedicated lab space.

    “I felt like my teachers really cared about my success in the program. As well, the program is evolving to meet the needs of industry, which means current students are being taught what they need to be a successful in a very competitive field. The lab space and equipment are current and up-to-date.”

    At SLC, Joe learned the important skill to critique his own work. “The biggest thing I learned was  what makes a design work, or not work, and I can assess my projects and make the necessary adjustment to make sure they work for the client.”
