Program Overview

Full-time Program - Attestation d’Études Collégiales (AEC) LCE.OZ

In just under 7 months of full-time study, students in the Graphic and Web Design program will acquire the top creative skills reflective of the contemporary aesthetic in demand by today’s powerhouse businesses. They will develop a “designer’s eye,” becoming proficient at the fundamentals of good design for web and print, knowing what looks good and why. Students will also explore branding, product packaging, entrepreneurship, mobile technology, interface design, advertising materials, and much more. Students in the program will master industry-standard software (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Dreamweaver) and, guided by teachers working in today’s design industry and a hands-on approach to learning, will be supported in applying design theory to a wide variety of practical projects: flyers, logos, newsletters, e-blasts, social media pages, posters, advertisements, and other in-demand fundamentals.

By the end of the program, students will be able to:

  • Create, edit, and composite digital photographs
  • Create, trace, and modify drawings on the computer for logos and illustrations
  • Design and create digital and print publications
  • Design and create web sites
  • Produce original, attractive documents that enhance the client’s brand image
  • Work creatively, with an enhanced aesthetic sensibility
  • Work effectively as part of a team and independently

Space in this program will fill up quickly; sign up for an information session and help design your own future.

THIS IS A TUITION FEE FREE PROGRAM FUNDED BY THE Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur (MEES).
