Graphic Design Major


Graphic Design

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.
