We live in a highly visual world, and graphic designers are the artists who create that world. Visual media is critical to effective communication, especially in the realms of publishing, marketing and public relations. Graphic designers know better than anyone the importance of presentation: no matter how compelling the content, your message runs the risk of being overlooked if it is not presented in a unique, engaging way. But how do you stand out in this competitive field? Begin by pursuing a graphic design degree in Louisville KY from Sullivan University— you’ll build a marketable skill set and discover how to give your work an edge.


By the time you graduate from Sullivan University, you will have built up an impressive portfolio of work, from print layouts to animations to web pages to 3-D modeling.
