|Field of Study:||Advertising
|Description:||Humber’s intensive Advertising & Graphic Design diploma program was developed to meet industry demand for advertising art directors and graphic designers with solid strategic, visual, conceptual, typographic and technical skills. Classes focus on these areas of study and emphasize important life skills such as creative thinking, problem solving, teamwork and presentation skills.
You will explore the many facets of visual communication including colour theory, conceptual process, typography, design, marketing strategies, interactive media and digital technology through the use of current tools that meet industry standards. You will also have the unique opportunity to apply these skills in Humber’s real-world ad agency/design studio and experience linkage opportunities with both the Advertising Copywriting, and Advertising - Account Management programs. The first semester of the program is shared with the three-year Public Relations advanced diploma, the three-year Journalism advanced diploma, the two-year Advertising and Marketing Communications diploma, and the two-year Media Communications diploma programs, allowing the flexibility to continue in any of these five programs in second semester. Our advisory committee, a group of experienced art directors and designers, provides regular review and input into our curriculum, ensuring our program is always on the cutting edge of industry developments. Many of our faculty are part-time instructors who spend their non-teaching time working in current industry settings, allowing them to share their experiences and connections with you in the classroom every week.
