Preliminary Work is Necessary!

In the Graphic Design program at SLCC, tight preliminary work is required. Students who spend more time solving problems in the beginning of the design process are much more successful in completing work in a computer program. Here are examples of preliminary work from current students and graduates now professionals in the industry.
