Housed in the Fine Arts Building, graphic design students have access to a range of digital design equipment in Student Technology Centers, printing equipment in the Digital Printing Lab, and letterpress equipment in The Type Shop.
Graphic Design Facilities
The Type Shop
The Type Shop is a letterpress printing facility. It is used to teach typographic terminology, history, and technology. The Type Shop is a staple of the graphic design program and has been a part of the Department of Studio Art since the 1960s. There are a variety of resources for students to use, including Vandercook presses, abundant wood and metal fonts, a book binding press, a guillotine paper cutter, and a foil stamper.
B.F.A & M.F.A. studios
B.F.A. and M.F.A. digital art students share two studios dedicated to their individual work. The shared environment encourages collaboration and the sharing of new ideas and approaches.
