The Communication Design concentration within the Design Arts major expands the boundaries of traditional graphic design. In this program, students develop the combined skills of conceptual thinking and practical experience to create provocative design solutions that are relevant in the contemporary design environment. This area of study prepares students for the broadest possibilities and most challenging engagements of today’s creative industry.
The PNCA Illustration curriculum aims to equip ambitious students with every tool a modern visual communicator needs. The idealist who seeks to see, understand, and reshape individual and collective visions. The fun-lover who rides crazy new ideas like a surfer rides forty-foot swells. The artisan, the analytic, the future gaming mogul: Everyone learns the field’s classic technical disciplines, everyone learns the complex entrepreneurial skills today’s artist needs to thrive, and everyone is pressed to discover the compelling personal vision that will sustain a lifetime of vibrant work and a strong client base. But getting back to the modern world as Wild West 2.0: Being about as far west as you can get, we like to think there’s something in the Portland air (and coffee) that helps artists grok what it means to step out into the big bad world and, as they say, paint the town red.
Or blue. Yeah – or whatever color matches your ten-gallon hat.
