Main, uincy Horton Tire Center To send a legal: To send an advertisement: II Ruth Ellis News Editor Graphic design is a fast- growing, flexible industry and now Lassen Communi- ty College (LCC) is offering an enhanced program to help students pursue suc- cess. The California Communi- ty College Chancellor's Of- fice approved LCC offering an' associate of science de- gree in digital graphic de- sign and an expanded cer- tificate of achievement in the same discipline. "This is a huge step for LCC and for the residents of northeastern California. This is the first time a pro- gram like this has ever been offered. The Digital Graphic Design program at LCC will merge artistic creativity with state-of-the-art technol- ogy to give students a high- er level of professionalism in their designing for a ca- reer in the corporate, global world," said LCC graphic design instructor Lori Col- lier. The graphic design pro- gram will be expanded from 17 units to 46. According to Collier, the recently approved associate degree and certificate of achievement will give stu- dents an educational oppor- tunity to learn the princi- ples of design, expand their knowledge with Adobe pro- grams and state-of-the:art equipment, prepare them- Selves for a career in graph- ic design and transfer as a second-or third- year stu- dent to a university or insti- tute to pursue a bachelor's or master's degree. Collier said, "In the past, with the few courses LCC has offered, we have seen numerous students that just want to learn how to create an attractive website, or fly- ers for their business. We have students that have never worked with Adobe programs such as Photo: shop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and InDe- sign. "We even have had the el- der student that wants to know more about the com- puter and enhancing their family's digital photos. But more so, we see the students that are creative, have a passion for the arts, but need a career. This program bridges that gap." Some pf the courses of- fered through the digital graphic design program in- clude: computer graphics, digital layout, digital illus- tration, web page designing, digital and traditional pho- tography, typography, printmaking, production graphics, two-dimensional design, marketing yourself as a designer, exhibition and gallery design. Collier said, "Not only will students become edu- cated in all aspects of graph- ic design, they will have the opportunity for an intern- ship with businesses in the community to get a feel for working with and for the public and flex their wings beyond the classroom at LCC." High school students can also get a jump-start in LCC's program. According Up-to-the-minute forecast and road conditions at Thursday August 23rd 5-8 pm Downtown Quincy to Collier, Pam Dusenber- ry's commercial art class at Herlong High School and Dawn Egan's Lassen Envi- ronmental and Applied Partnership Program class at Lassen High School artic- ulate with the college's pro- gram. Students who have partic- ipated in the Tech Prep/2+2/Career Technical Education Program qualify for credit at LCC and can bypass the basic design class. The greatest advantage to a graphic design career, ac- cording to Collier, is that it is global. She said, "You can work anywhere in the world, for any size company or stay at home and, via the Internet, send your designs to clients elsewhere." Even in the world's eco- nomic downturn, Collier cites the U.S. Department of Labor: the graphic design industry is projected to grow by 13 percent over the course of six years. There are also future plans for the digital graphic design program to offer an Entrepreneurship Certifi- cate of Accomplishment in the Business of Graphic De- sign. Collier has been working with LCC business instruc- tor Garrett Taylor to devel- op the certificate. "This option will allow students to gain practical knowledge on accounting, setting up their own busi- ness, getting to know busi- ness strategies in the real world, and marketing them- selves/business," Collier said. "I am seeing more and more businesses of all kinds hire employees with graph- ic design knowledge and business skills over other employees. Those with these skills are more valu- able as they can use their knowledge and skills to cre- ate or maintain websites for the business, create posters and flyers for advertising the business or event, they have better people and client skills, and can deliver on a deadline." - Volunteers Needed!
