Graphic Design Experience

The Experience

With a broad focus on fashion and entertainment industries, our Graphic Design program aides students in developing a professional portfolio of their work. Students learn how to concept, execute, and pitch ideas. They leave the program ready to design for every platform -- from mobile and web to posters, packaging, and other print material -- with user experience a primary focus.

FIDM Graphic Design Program Graduates have gone on to create movie posters and eco-friendly shopping bags, design graphics for Marvel Comic Book apparel, launch their own design firms and greeting card companies, work on ad campaigns for Nissan and Mercedes-Benz, and so much more.
