LCAD’s BFA programs in Graphic Design + Digital Media (GD+DM) are consistently ranked in the top 10% of university and college design programs. GD + DM graduates are adept at traditional theory and the application of emerging technologies. The focus and core of our design program engages students in critical thinking, problem solving and advanced creative skills as they prepare to succeed and lead in industry. Our multidisciplinary approach recognizes that designers must develop solutions that move seamlessly across a dynamic and ever-shifting array of media and experiences.

An LCAD GD+DM portfolio contains creative solutions for brand strategy and development; web, print and packaging design; UI/UX; 3D animation; virtual and augmented reality; digital video and motion; action sports apparel; marketing; and social media. As a result, LCAD’s GD+DM program has garnered collaborations and partnerships with world-renowned brands. These exclusive collaborations allow LCAD GD+DM students hands-on design and mentorship opportunities. We invite you to see their innovative solutions and learn more about our GD+DM program. Our design program offers BFA’s in GD+DM, GD+DM with ACTION SPORTS, GD+DM with ILLUSTRATION. Additionally, we offer a BFA in GD + DM with minors in UI/UX, Packaging, and Motion Design.
