Design Beyond the Classroom
American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) at USF
Members of USF’s AIGA student chapter gain resources needed to move into the professional design world by participating in workshops, field trips, lectures, exhibitions, and other events both on campus as well as within larger communities in San Francisco and throughout the country. Members gain design skills as well as building leadership and communication skills that will be valuable as they move into the design profession.
The Graphics Center is a unique student-run organization and business that does design work for clubs, faculty, and departments on campus. Students who work at the "GC "are paid for their work and gain valuable experience in working with clients, printers, and in a small design firm setting. Students work on design projects ranging from posters, flyers, and banners to T-shirts, booklets, brochures, and more.
