Visual Communication Design Graduation Exhibition
Who are we?
We are 48 young graphic designers attending Arizona State University's Visual Communication Design program. The last three and a half years have been all about learning the basic principles of graphic design. We have spent many late nights in studio working on our projects and have worked at various internships at firms both locally and internationally. As the end of our four year program nears, it is time to show the public what we have learned and show how graphic design can help change the world we live in through our annual Graduation Exhibition.
What is the VCD Graduation Exhibition?
For the past 25 years, the seniors of Arizona State University's Visual Communication Design program have organized an exhibition that showcases their findings on a chosen social issue. Each student spends their senior year researching that social issue and creating a visual campaign and exhibit that raises awareness on their topic. The exhibition's intention as a whole is to inform the general public of the issues facing today's society and expose how graphic design can help solve these issues. The exhibition also acts as a networking event and serves as a chance for each student to convey the design knowledge they have obtained over the last four years in the VCD program.
Why we need your help.
Past exhibitions have relied primarily on club funding from the university. However, due to budget cuts, ASU is no longer able to fully fund the event. The seniors of the VCD program will need to pay for venue fees, catering, printed and digital promotion items, and all kinds of materials to help build each student's individual exhibition. By supporting our cause, you will be helping 48 young designers organize an ambitious event that aims to increase awareness of current social issues and ultimately demonstrate how graphic design can change the world.
