The graphic design program allows students to learn about effective communication while combining traditional art concepts with computer design and typography skills.

As a graphic design major at Meredith, you’ll develop a clear understanding of the collaborative dialogue between client, audience, and designer. You’ll learn to solve consumer-centered communication problems, and take works from conception to production. And you’ll learn the art of effective, creative communication.

Graphic design combines a background in traditional art concepts with computer design and typography skills, and is structured to enable you to gain the skills and knowledge necessary for practice in the graphic design field. Students of the graphic design program are exposed to evolving technologies and contemporary developments in graphic and web design. Internships are strongly encouraged as a vital component of the graphic design education process.

Student Artwork

Our student artists work with a wide range of subject matter and materials, from ceramics to fiber to print. Each artist favors her own media and is inspired by her own motivations and narratives. Student artwork is featured during special exhibitions in the Frankie G. Weems Art Gallery.
