At Randolph-Macon Academy, our Graphic and Digital Design program is a chance for students to explore their interests in a modern developing field. The digital age has brought new opportunities to the professional landscape. The media industry is constantly evolving and seeking budding young professionals with the knowledge and skills to impact the future.
Graphic design plays a significant role in shaping the digital experience. At R-MA, the Digital Design course is created to provide technical skills and practical training in a stimulating area. Students will explore trends in digital content production, harness computer software skills, and apply their creativity to succeed in a dynamic area of study. Here’s a closer look at what our Digital Design program has to offer.
Experience of Real-World Media Projects
At R-MA, we offer a dynamic learning approach that combines theoretical knowledge with a practical learning experience. The goal is to provide students with a comprehensive foundation in their field. Studying digital media is a rewarding experience for any young person. Not only do they learn to use technical equipment to produce content, but they can also develop a critical lens when viewing the media they consume.
The Graphic and Digital Design program at our boarding school equips students with real-world skills that cater to the opportunities of the digital economy. In this course, students take on challenging real-world projects and assignments typical of the graphic design industry. Additionally, students have the chance to work on time-based and digital media projects such as CAD, digital fabrication, video, audio, animation, and stop motion animation projects.
With industry-relevant experience and a skills-based approach, our students are given the opportunity to engage with the dynamic world of digital media.
Improving Digital Literacy at Our Private Academy
Our college preparatory school is committed to preparing students for success in both higher education and professional pathways. In the age of digitalization, computer software skills are a key influence in the modern workforce. Media companies and organizations increasingly rely on new technologies for various operations. As a result, they are seeking skilled professionals that can streamline those operations with digital capabilities.
The Graphic and Digital Design program at R-MA teaches the principles of great design and typography. Students in this program gain experience using professional-grade Adobe design software to create digital drawings, logos, advertisements, magazine layouts, and more. By drawing upon a wealth of digital design experience, our graduates stand as a valuable addition to any employer in the modern field of digital media.
Enhancing Visual Communication Skills
Students at R-MA are encouraged to explore their interests in both an academic and artistic domain. The Graphic and Digital Design program offers a unique blend of the two. Graphic design can be understood as a form of visual communication that incorporates type, image, form, space, and color. The course emphasizes the principles of design and the integration of elements of art. In this sense, students have the chance to engage with the visual arts as a lifelong vessel for fulfillment and artistic expression, with no prior art or design experience necessary. By the end of the course, students create a digital portfolio to showcase their work. Through our innovative program, artistic sensibilities find their footing in a modern and practical field.
