Graphic Design Industry Outlook For Minnesota:

Nationwide, only 250 schools are accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design and Minnesota houses 4 of those. Some type of formal education is essential to a successful graphic design career and Minnesota offers many avenues to obtain this. The area of graphic design you are interested in will dictate what type of school you attend and for how long. For instance, if you are more artistically inclined and want to create and implement your own designs, a fine arts degree is where you would focus your attention. If you are drawn to digital design and web design, education obtained from a vocational school could suffice. The vocation education might not teach you much about drawing and art but it would provide you with the computerized elements of graphic design. Some planning is essential to choosing a focused educational path that will land you at your desired destination.
