Graphic 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.
