Faculty of Design
In the Graphic Design program, students learn the process of visual communication through the combo of images, photography and text to represent ideas and messages. OCAD U’s Graphic Design program teaches students the skills they need for commercial and corporate work but also encourages them to use graphic design as an art form, to challenge barriers and create work for social good.

“Design is not just about aesthetics, but it's also about making a difference in the world ”
“What makes design so simple yet so complex at the same time? Paul Rand once spoke similar words, and that is what makes design so exciting and why it continues to thrive in the 21st century. ”
“Design is not only merely the expression of art, but a thoughtful balance of artistic expression and practical considerations. ”

“As a designer, I tend to look at everything in life that makes me think of beauty and let that be my source of inspiration. My goal is to make the work's results look interesting, inspiring, and serviceable to my audience. ”

“What are the boundaries of design? Design is a powerful organic medium that possibly connects everything beyond being a visual communication tool. ”
