Graphic Design Facilities

Graphic design facilities

Housed in the Fine Arts Building, graphic design students have access to a range of digital design equipment in our Student Technology Centers, printing equipment in the Digital Printing Lab, and letterpress equipment in The Typography Studio.

The Typography Studio

The Typography Studio is a letterpress printing facility. It is used to teach typographic terminology, history, and technology. The studio is a staple of the graphic design program and has been a part of the School of Art, Architecture and Design since the 1960s. There are a variety of resources for students to use, including Vandercook presses, abundant wood and metal fonts, a bookbinding press, a guillotine paper cutter, and a foil stamper.

B.F.A + M.F.A. studios

B.F.A. and M.F.A. graphic design students are provided their own individual work areas, with separate shared studio spaces. The M.F.A. studio is adjacent to The Typography Studio, and is a spacious shared space with a large table for collaborative work. M.F.A. students have their own desks, flat files, and metal storage cabinets. B.F.A. students have a large shared studio with their own desks and flat files. The studio is equipped with white boards for brainstorming and collaborative work.
