“I finally did it! 5 years later and you’re looking at a BFA grad in Graphic Design! Even better is that on Monday, I start my first full-time career as a designer. Thank you to all my friends and family that supported me through school and pushed me to do the best I could!”

“The Annual AIGA Student Portfolio Review is designed to serve undergraduate students from Utah State University, Weber State, University of Utah, Salt Lake Community College, Utah Valley University, Brigham Young University and Southern Utah University.” ~ AIGA SLC

AIGA Salt Lake City’s Student Portfolio Review is always a great event for students to gain advice, insight and industry information from SLC professional designers as well as design and illustration faculty from Utah colleges.

SLCC Visual Art & Design Department Associate Professor Kerry Gonzáles and Assistant Professor Virag White, both in the Graphic Design specialization, joined their advanced students at this year’s event. Both said they were very proud of the six VAD Graphic Design students who showed their portfolios and were reviewed by creative directors and faculty from other institutions.

Alumni News: Congratulations Alissa!

From Alissa,

“Hi, my name is Alissa Hicks. I recently graduated in May 2015 from SLCC with an Associate’s of Applied Science degree in Visual Art & Design/Graphic Design Emphasis. Now, I will be pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design, as well as minors in Business Administration/Marketing Emphasis and Japanese at Weber State University.

I have always wanted to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree and I really look forward to obtaining more education in Graphic Design, because I truly enjoy every aspect of this profession. For a while, I was not sure where I wanted to complete my education, but after comparing many Graphic Design programs at 4-year colleges, I decided on Weber State University. They offer a wide variety of traditional and digital art classes for their design program, as well as, printing classes.

I started my graphic design education in a print-heavy environment in high school, which has caused me to be drawn to printing and WSU offered exactly what I had been looking for. The process of transferring to WSU has been really great for me. As a transfer student, I was eligible to apply for some scholarships through WSU and I actually received two President’s Transfer Scholarships that, along with another outside scholarship, completely covers my tuition for the year.

Along with all of this, I was also able to find a part-time job, through the school, to work as a Graphic Designer for The Signpost (WSU’s school newspaper). I’m really excited about all of the opportunities that have been, and continue to be, presented to me since graduating from Salt Lake Community College.”
