AIGA Graphic Design College Convocation

The American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) hosted its annual Convocation earlier this month where top graphic design professionals addressed recent graduates from its graphic designer colleges that focus on the gaming design industry.

Rajesh Rao, the CEO of Dhurva Interactive provided the convocation. He addressed the video games industry specifically providing insight about the earliest graphic designers to current demand for designs.

This as AIGA released a survey in August, gauging the overall employability in their categories of graphic design, including salary information from the worldwide industry.

Graphic design college graduates are more likely to land a good-paying job by maintaining a broad knowledge base that is transferrable between industries. Though there is much optimism among graphic design college student and in the industry, some niche’s of graphic design aren’t as open as others – a statistic that seems to be dynamically changing on a fairly consistent basis.

Predicting the future for students at graphic design colleges is really dependent on attention to the overall incline and declines of demand in certain types of industries. Graphic design related to the health care industry is a specialty skill that may pay off simply because more health care facilities are being created than before. New advertising, promotions, and interactive media will be necessary for this job sector.

For parents in attendance, Rao assured them that graphic designer college was a good choice for their children and provided graduates with guidance and information about the best ways to succeed in the industry.

Following the convocation, students were awarded Professional Diplomas from the guest speaker. Many of the graphic design school graduates are already employed in the gaming industry and some with Rao’s company.

AIGA graduate Deepa Nambiar provided a student speech at the ceremony, stating that the staff at AIGA provided her with far more than game development skills and made the experience complete.
