Graphic Design

Cultivate multifaceted skills in visual communication

Graphic design at the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design is a competitive, robust area of study that enables students to investigate design theory, process, and application. Our graduates are user experience designers, art directors, professors, and marketing directors reimagining the ways in which we communicate.
