Graphic Design LabGraphic Design, branding, and illustration
Under the guidance of professional designers, apprentices in the Graphic Design Lab develop their skills in digital illustration, graphic design, and brand development by working on projects for clients across a range of sectors.
Graphic Design, branding, and illustration
Apprentices in Graphic Design Lab work directly with teaching artists and designers to develop their skills while gaining real-world experience working on client projects. Once accepted to Graphic Design, apprentices learn and practice the basics of graphic design and illustration, become comfortable working with Adobe Suite products, and eventually advance to contribute to client projects.
While working on client projects, apprentices attend client meetings, defend their concepts, and incorporate client feedback into their creations. In their time in the lab, they can develop a portfolio of professional work while also refining their creative voices. Time in the lab also includes input and critique from peers and teaching artists. These activities encourage youth artists to develop their style while demonstrating their ability to give and receive constructive criticism and advocate for their creative vision and work.
