"Today’s graphic designer is expected to thrive under a wide umbrella of skillsets from print to experience design to motion graphics, illustration, photography, and more. The FSU Design Program is incredibly robust—offering an extensive range of courses that make thriving in all of these areas possible. Apart from this, much of my career trajectory can be attributed to the Design Program’s placement within the College of Business. I was able to build business acumen through marketing and management courses, as well as a real client experience senior year. It’s the skillset that gets you in the door but the well-nurtured business relationships that propel you forward."
