NORFOLK, Neb. – Graphic design students at Northeast Community College displayed their work to approximately 200 people during the program’s 12th annual Portfolio Show recently.

“The event provides graduating graphic design students an opportunity to present their work and hone their communications skills in preparation for job interviews,” said Phillip Schimonitz, graphic design instructor. “In addition to creating a portfolio, students developed personal resumes, cover letters, and business cards, as well as the promotional materials for the show. It went very well and the students presented themselves very professionally.”

In Northeast Community College’s Graphic Design program, students are provided instruction on the most effective way to get messages across in print, electronic, and film media using a variety of methods such as color, type, illustration, photography, animation, and various print and layout techniques. They are taught the foundations of design from instructors who bring years of experience from the industry while using the same type of software that is used in the industry today.
