Visual Communication Schools

Last Updated

Visual Communication Schools Visual communication schools can train you to utilize your creativity in ways you might not imagine. Look around you. It's practically impossible to miss the work of skilled artists and designers. If you watch TV, surf the Internet, read magazines, buy packaged products, play video games, cruise the highway, or try on branded clothing, you've been exposed to visual communications. Graphic design, illustration, and photography are only a few of the fields that make up this diverse professional realm.

The film, television, and video game industries require computer animators to create new characters, fictional environments, special effects and motion graphics. Advertising agencies and marketing firms need professional videographers and visual designers that can bounce between different mediums and offer up fresh ideas.

At a visual communications school, you can expect to learn fundamentals like typography, drawing, and image composition. Then, depending on your specialty, you may expand your skills to cover areas like 3D modeling, image editing and web design. You can become a pro at working with design software packages such as Adobe Creative Suite.

Your creative potential is limited only by your imagination. Before you know it, you could embark on an exciting career as a graphic designer, production artist, web designer, 3D animator, video game designer or any number of other possibilities that fall under the expansive umbrella of visual communications!
