Learn the Craft of Graphic Design: Fundamentals and Application
Look around, graphic design is everywhere! Graphic designers create and communicate messages, and design so many of the things we see every day — logos, websites, apps, packaging, posters, magazines, signage, environmental graphics, film and television titles, and more.
If you like working on your school’s newspaper, creating websites, making videos, or just looking at logos and visual identities, then the New York Film Academy’s Teens Graphic Design Camps are for you!
