What is Graphic Design at WVU like?
Our program aims to capture one definition of design: improvement of a situation, be it for health, efficiency, user experience, aesthetics or entertainment. Our design studio approaches problems by researching on-site to understand the environment and culture for which we are designing.
The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design begins with learning a foundation in typography, color, symbolic drawings, design for small and large formats and design thinking. Tactical elements of design are explored hands-on through paper engineering, book arts courses and access to a letterpress studio.
All interested students must apply to the University and submit a portfolio for the School of Art and Design for acceptance.
