Inspired by my success with design and layout at Corning Community College, and just beginning my career in web development (building pages for Cornell University,) I left upstate New York for one of the most prestigious art schools in the country.
The Savannah College of Art and Design, located in Savannah, Georgia, is the incubator for some of the finest artistic talents in the world today. The rigorous Graphic Design program is taught by industry professionals, and encourages real-world projects and competitive classroom scenarios.
Programs at SCAD are based in the Bauhaus model of education, which means that all students (regardless of their course of study) must prove artistic competency in a variety of "foundations" courses including color theory, two dimensional design, life drawing, and history before progressing to more specialized courses. Within the Graphic Design major courses focus on typography, page layout, print production, and digital page design.
