Capital Gains @ Belhaven

Once again the Belhaven Campus was set upon by many Graphic Design students and professionals from all around the State in order that they could attend the Capital Gains conference hosted by Karen Johnson & the AAF – Jackson

This one-day event is a unique opportunity to have working Professionals critique & review student’s portfolios as well as give presentations on current trends & topics facing working Graphic Designers today.

We were honoured to host the event and  hope everyone who came left enlightened and encouraged.

State of Design Education

I was recently made aware of this article which talks about the state of Design education.

What do you think of this article and the state of Design Education?

Special Guest — Heidi Flynn Barnett

I wanted to say  Thank you to a Heidi Flynn Barnett of Flynn Design.  Heidi was kind enough to come over and talk to our students about being a free lance Graphic Design and some of the joys & pit falls of working for oneself.
