APRIL 24-30, 2019 UCW 19 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM As department chair for Fayetteville Technical Community College's advertising and graphic design program, it is my pleasure to present the graduating class of 2019 and invite you to join us for Portfolio Night. It takes place Thursday, May 2, from 4-7 p.m. at the Harry F. Shaw Virtual College Center atrium on FTCC's Fayetteville campus. Each graduating student will display portfolios to highlight his or her work. In their portfolios, students demonstrate their development of skills and application of design principles as well as hard work. FTCC's advertising and graphic design cur- riculum provides students with the skills nec- essary for employment in graphic design and related fields. Students learn how to apply effective design principles to real-world assignments, utiliz- ing creative problem-solving skills. They focus on executing designs efficiently in appropriate design applications from the Adobe Creative Suite for a variety of printed and digital media. They explore industry expectations, associated processes and unique considerations for different aspects of design, including page layout, illustration, photog- raphy, product packaging, web design, advertising and promotions. Students can choose from programs of study that lead to an associate degree or a certificate in one of the following concentrations: digital graphics, graph- ic design basics or web-based graphics design. One of the most rewarding aspects of working with students is seeing the diversity of creativity expressed in their work. Provided the same instruc- tion, each student brings to their work a singular perspective that produces a unique design solution to achieve an objective. With a solid foundation in design principles, individualism and creativity yield multiple different, yet effective, designs. Join us for Portfolio Night to be inspired and have your creativity stimulated by the work of each of these students. In addition, Portfolio Night serves as a resource to connect leaders within our business com- munity with graduates who possess the skills to support advertising and promotional efforts through graphic design. Every business has graphic design needs of various degrees. Whether a business or organization is look- ing to hire for a full-time position or is seeking a graphic designer on a freelance or contract basis, they will find that FTCC's students have been well prepared to serve their needs. FTCC's faculty, staff and students hope you will plan to visit Portfolio Night on May 2. The Harry F. Shaw Virtual College Center is located at 2201 Hull Rd. Advertising and graphic design is just one of more than 250 academic programs of study to choose from at FTCC, which include busi- ness, computer technology, engineering/ applied technology, health, public service, arts and humanities, and math and sciences. Students can use their time wisely this sum- mer by enrolling in summer classes, which begin May 28. Registration for summer classes is open, and registration locations include the Tony Rand Student Center at the Fayetteville campus, the Spring Lake campus and the Fort Bragg Training & Development Center.
