The graphic design track at LSC-Kingwood trains students to conceptualize and create a myriad of graphic resources to meet a company’s marketing needs.

Graphic designers are an integral part of a company’s brand, advertising, marketing or web development team. They use Adobe programs, principles and design elements to influence brand recognition, company unity, communication, efficiency and productivity. 

“We integrate this knowledge and skills to present complex information in new and interesting ways and elicit various responses to the subject matter,” said Zoila Donneys, professor of graphic design at Lone Star College (LSC)-Kingwood.

The Graphic Design track through the Visual Communication program at LSC-Kingwood teaches the latest industry software in state-of-the-art computer labs. Courses focus on design and conceptual skills, typography, web design and more from experienced faculty. This track offers students a chance to earn either an associate of applied science degree (AAS) or a level II certificate in two years.

“Students will begin working on their project in the first year to help them learn how to communicate their ideas. These projects will closely mirror the professional world, and they will gain transferable experience from the very start,” Donneys said. “They will do this through a series of problem-solving tasks in digital illustration, branding, magazine design, advertising basics and plenty more.”  

The graphic design track will also train students on digital publishing, digital imaging, computer illustration, typography, web design and multimedia development. Upon completion, graduates can offer creative, technological and project management skills to become leading professionals in various fields such as graphic designers, brand-creative designers, production artists, product developers, advertising coordinators, multimedia artists and animators.

“This program can help everyone from aspiring designers seeking skills for entry-level employment to marketing and communication professionals looking to sharpen their design skills for use in their current roles,” Donneys said.
