Graphic Design

Student Comments

Photo"I graduated from Nashville State Community College in December 2003 with a major in Visual Communications/Graphic Design. I am now working at a print shop in Franklin, called Harpeth Graphics, where I get to use all the skills that I learned in school. Because of the great program, I was able to pick right up with the tasks at the new job and immediately felt comfortable with the programs they were using. I was well prepared and had confidence in what I was doing.

Nashville State's design program has some of the most caring and dedicated teachers. They care about you not only as a student, but also as a friend. I remember a certain night being on the phone with one of them for over an hour at like one in the morning. Now that's what I call dedication.

I must also mention that I was referenced to this job by the school's career placement center. They did an excellent job helping me find the job that best suited me."

Student Photo"Before I began attending Nashville State Community College, I thought graphic design was all Photoshop, all computer, all the time. At NSCC, I learned about the many aspects and processes involved in the design field including typography, layout, and printing. I also learned the various design applications and how to interweave my work through them successfully. The instructors were knowledgeable, patient, and most importantly, encouraging. As it turned out, I enjoyed my stay at NSCC so much that I decided to continue my education. I submitted my portfolio to Savannah College of Art and Design and received an artistic scholarship. I truly believe I would not be on this path to success without NSCC."
