The Design Department guides students through the process of becoming a designer for tomorrow by introducing them to the skills and knowledge all designers need today. Students explore the different career paths of Graphic Design, Interaction Design, Experience Design (UX, AR, and VR), Illustration, Typography, Packaging Design, Design for Social Activism, Transition Design, and 2D/3D Animation.
What To Expect
By the end of their second year students can choose one of three BFA degrees: BFA in Design, BFA in Illustration, or a BFA in Animation. They can also earn an Emphasis in Game Arts or Experience Design. Cornish designers use the most current digital tools to create 2D and 3D art for gaming, user interfaces for app development, web development, and VR/AR applications. The hand skills used in printmaking, drawing, posters, and designed objects are fundamental to our programs. We want our students to be as comfortable designing in the analog world as they are in the digital.
