Creative Spotlight on COMMUNICATION DESIGN


UNTITLED magazine highlights exceptionally strong student work from PNCA's Communication Design Department.

UNTITLED magazine features some of the strongest examples of student artwork from each department and program. These pieces are selected by faculty members within the department and represent a diversity of styles, techniques, and subject matters.

In PNCA’s Communication Design Department students develop the combined skills of conceptual thinking and practical experience to create provocative design solutions that are relevant in the contemporary design environment. The curriculum encourages integrated design solutions across media and fosters the development of research, critical thinking, and creative practice skills while being rooted in communication theory. To gain real-world experience, students work on actual client projects via the College’s Center 4 Design. C4D is an on-campus, working student studio where client work is conducted under faculty supervision for college credit. This prepares students for the broadest possibilities and most challenging engagements of today’s creative industry. The Communication Design program also offers a robust internship program with the best agencies and studios in Portland and beyond.

The gallery below features work by the following student artists: Brianna Miller ’13, Corey Koberna ’14, Eric Ahlstrom ’16, Erica Larson ’13, Gabe Kieselhorst ’13, James Snowbarger ’14, Joy Castiglione ’13, Justine Robinson ’14, Karen Khounthavong ’13, Lacey Kasten ’13, Miles Johnson ’12, Ryan Miller ’14, Sean Sullivan ’13, Stephanie Herwig ’13, Taurie Davis ’12, Taylor Garber ’12, Vadim Makoyed ’12, William Hart ’12, and Wyatt Benoit ’13.
