The Art of the Matter
Images and designs are literally everywhere. Some are memorable. They stand out. They evoke emotion. They stand the test of time. But those images don’t just happen. They take thought, skill, and the right tools.
Good graphic design takes training and HUAZ has that kind of training in spades.
“I've been learning a lot way faster than I thought I would.” - Real Student of HUAZ
We start with the foundation of good design which is fine art. From art history to painting to figure drawing, my make sure our graphic design students understand the elements of art and design. Building on that foundation, we dive into 2D and 3D art, as well as layout, raster, and vector based classes, as students develop the technical skills needed to bring concepts to life. From there, we use the latest tools to inspire the next generation of artists to turn their vision into a reality.
But wait, there's more!
HUAZ graphic design students also have the opportunity to explore the world of digital photography, web design, and illustration to round out their design portfolio.
All these skills combine with a need to create art HUAZ students candidates for careers in advertising, production artists, print media, illustration, art directors, creative directors, web design and photography.
