Admissions Graduate Assistant
Bronxville, New York
Hi, Hailey! I have worked in Advertising doing copywriting, but I worked directly with graphic designers and art directors. Most of the graphic designers I know completed a Bachelor’s degree in Communications or Art. That would be a 4 year commitment. Usually, an art program will offer a BFA (which requires a portfolio), and a Communications program will offer a BS (which does not require a portfolio). You could also opt to go to an Ad School, which specifically trains graphic designers on how to design for advertising.
