Advertising & Graphic Design

The focus of Advertising and Graphic Design is to educate professional designers who are sensitive to contemporary images, alert to design history, and able to create work that is clear, aesthetically appealing, and persuasive.

The Animation major starts with a strong foundation in the fundamentals. Students become fluent in both two dimensional and three dimensional animation and prepare for careers in fields as diverse as entertainment and medical illustration. Graduates have found opportunities at all the major animation studios and contribute to many popular films and TV shows. The major stresses narrative and storytelling along with a strong commitment to craft and technique. Students are encouraged to explore the convergence of animation with other time-based and photographic media.

Fashion Design
From that first spark of an idea born as an illustration, to fabric choice and the drape on a dress form, fashion design is an imaginative problem solving activity that brings a vision to an artistic creation. When you major in Fashion Design at CCAD you work to achieve a balance of trend-setting innovation and an intelligent sense of style.

Fine Arts
The division of Fine Arts provides students with the technical, intellectual and practical skills required for success as a fine artist. A broad based sophomore year gives students essential material skills, craftsmanship and basic aesthetic awareness in two-dimensional and three-dimensional applications.

You'll become familiar with the vast possibilities inherent in mass media, computer technology, three-dimensional illustration, cartoons and comics, animation, and Web design. You'll be exposed to techniques used in editorial and advertising production, and with using of a range of materials—from pencils, to inks, to the latest in computer imaging.

Industrial Design
Whether inventing a product to help people with disabilities or redesigning the common coffee maker to look like high art, industrial designers use innovation, imagination, and technical skills to make things better.  An industrial design education begins with a grounding in design fundamentals and an understanding of aesthetics, along with knowledge about the selection and use of materials and engineering needs. In this program, you'll look to the principles of art to design products that are functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Interior Design
Interior Design is often considered to be three-dimensional art in practice. Interior Design students learn to create the environments where we interact with the world. CCAD offers you the opportunity design aesthetically outstanding spaces that are based upon theories of human behavior, functionality, sustainability, health, safety, and welfare. In this program you will focus upon exercises and simulated real-world design issues, defining a potential client’s goals and objectives through research, planning, design, and problem-solving techniques.

Media Studies
The Media Studies major builds on the convergence of animation, video, interactive design, motion graphics, and photography — allowing students the flexibility to explore connections between the many areas and media taught at CCAD. This broad approach encourages artists who are comfortable with change, the emergence of new forms, and experimental art and design drawing on fine art, movement, sound, and interactive media. Students develop skills in animation, video, interactive design, motion graphics, and photography, and also explore opportunities to break the boundaries between these media.

The Photography major builds on the foundation skills to develop artists who are prepared for careers in both commercial and fine art photography. Students move seamlessly between cutting edge digital tools and classic “darkroom” wet photography. Because the major is part of the larger Media Studies division, it encourages an expanded view of how photography participates in contemporary digital media. From classic platinum prints to interactive multi-media, the overriding emphasis is on the development of the student’s individual voice and vision as a photographic artist.
