The Graphic Artist’s primary responsibility is to conceptualize, design, and produce instructional print materials for teaching faculty to support teaching, research, and publications. Work consists of designing charts, graphs, flyers, posters, poster presentations, exhibits, signage, and dry mounting.
Conceptualize: The primary goal of the Graphic Designer is to convey information attractively
and develop successful design solutions in a manner that is easily understood by the target audience. Design concepts will communicate detailed knowledge and skills of current graphic design practices while promoting faculty teaching and research (in and out of the classroom).
Design: Design projects will demonstrate excellence in typography, color theory, layout, and creativity to produce effective design solutions.
Production Process: Printing of digital files will be limited to low volumes employing standard printing/materials.
