"We have already passed the most difficult steps, " says Claude Dubé, dean of development, architecture and visual arts. It seems that the blessing of the highest levels of the University is only a formality.

From October 27, the School of Design gradually gain independence. Currently, the design programs are an integral part of the Faculty of Visual Arts. "After 40 years of incubation, the discipline has improved, has developed its own expertise, so it is normal that it be recognized as such and be independent, " says Claude Dubé, excited by the project. He draws a parallel with the School of Architecture, which began being built at the School of Fine Arts, which took off in 1960. Over time, this split will allow the School of Design to specialize more, "and the School of Visual Arts will also be able to redefine" says the dean. Everyone will benefit.

The first two years - 2012-2014 - will be used to lay the groundwork for a major design school. "Initially, we will resume the programs graphic design and animation. From September 2014, new programs will be integrated as a degree in industrial design, advanced degrees and master's programs. We plan to integrate a program by year 2014. "Claude Dubé would like this new school is in the building of the factory. "But we are already cramped, he said. We'll see if the City can eventually occupy the space it has, but if this is not possible, we will have to move elsewhere. "

Better synergy

The creation of such a school will have many benefits. According to Mr. Dubé, we see a reconciliation between teachers and students, as well as synergy between the school and the design community in Quebec and the surrounding area, allowing students to become professionally. "We will work with Mission Design, which includes several professional associations and players in the field of design." Mission Design ( ) is a Canadian non-profit organization that seeks to provide a force to the industry by combining design and economic development.

"We're going to have a more active school, we will attract renowned faculty, you will have exchanges with the world enthuses Mr. Dubé. On October 27, it will join Cumulus, which is a network of design schools around the world. "

Claude Dubé is certain that this new design school will also be "a big plus" for the city. Obviously, people trained here will bring their expertise to urban development, revitalization, among other things. "Mr. [Regis] Labeaume love innovation, I hope that the City will jump at the chance to show what we do and what we are, "exclaimed Claude Dubé mentioning some projects with the City are already on the drawing board, without detailing what it is.

Just back from Saint-Etienne, France, or the Cité du design platform organizes a variety of activities around the design every year, said Claude Dubé want to see this type of event in Quebec. "The biennial conferences on design, it would complement the cultural vocation" of the city. The message is launched ...

If you can already do everything graphic design

Wise, then its a complete waste of money to go get a degree for it. The feild is an experience/portfolio one, not which school or degree you have. Unless you need to learn all the programs and design concepts- take one lots of smaller freelance jobs to build up your portfolio, then work on the bigger jobs. Once you get a good size portfolio made it'll be easy to get an in-house design job. Of course, this is experience speaking from southern cali, not boston- I have no idea how hard it'll be for you over there.

Advice from a graphic designer...

It is hard to answer all your questions because the graphic design field is so varied and depends a lot on the company you work for. But here goes...
It sounds like you are focusing on becoming a website designer. I think the first thing to know is that there is a big difference between someone who can DESIGN a website and someone who BUILDS a website. It looks like you would have no problem building them, but having a keen design sense (typography, color, etc.) is a whole 'nother ball game! If you have artisitc/creative skill, then getting a job as a designer will be much easier. Go to coolhomepages

Get yourself into a good design school

I wonder why everyone wants to be a graphic designer. I've been working in design for five years and it's no picnic. I love it, but it's very hard work and there are a LOT of talented designers with mega-experience out there. Competition is FIERCE. If you really want to go forward, you should try to tag along with a designer you know for a day or two, or a week, and then if you still want to go forward, get some formal training. Dabbling doesn't count. Good luck.

  • Avatar Molly Should I go to a in state public school or out of state private school?
    Aug 27, 2011 by Molly | Posted in Higher Education (University +)

    So I want to major in either journalism/advertising/graphic design and my in state school University of Oregon has majors and colleges for these interests. However, I have the grades and test scores to go to more prestigious colleges in California for example. So is it worth the price to go out of state to a nicer school? Or is it a better idea to get the in state price for a good school? Thanks!

    • Academics do not use "prestigious" to describe colleges and universities. University of Oregon is a much "nicer" school than most of the overcrowded public universities in California. It is a total waste of money to attend an out of state or private school for your proposed majors, especially journalism, which is a dying field in which there are no jobs.

    Yes, I m aware ive asked this question 2 times before. I m asking again because I didnt really get any response from the previous questions and the answers I did get weren t too straight forward. I want to go into graphic design and im not too sure what schools are best for my choice. I prefer schools in or around LA but if you can think of any schools generally on the west coast (such as other areas in California, Oregon, and Washington), that would …

  • Avatar Casey! What Oregon and Cali colleges have good art programs?
    Nov 31, 2010 by Casey! | Posted in Higher Education (University +)

    I m a senior and I plan on applying to mostly art schools. But I want to apply to a few liberal arts colleges as well, but ones with very good art programs. What schools, in California or Oregon, have good art programs? (Specifically in graphic design or advertising.)

    • Since you are from out of the state of California (no one here calls it Cali) you will need to avoid all state colleges and state universities as it is almost impossible to get into them as an out of state student. This will greatly cut down the number you need to consider.
