The graphic communications industry boasts one of the most diverse sets of employment opportunities in America, with opportunities in every state and most cities and towns. Graphic design works with print, web, packaging, copy shops (digital print), commercial print, sign companies, and more. From business cards to wrapping cars, catalogs, websites, and social media, our students have choices.

The CPTC Graphic Design Technology program provides a clear pathway to employment through the skills we teach and the experience we provide. Learn the entire Adobe Creative Suite and, most importantly, how all the applications work together to complete a project. When it looks good on the screen, you're only halfway done; you must be able to repurpose what you've created for output and a variety of media outlets.

If you're a creative person who loves art and design, this might be the program and career path for you.
