An Award Winning Graphic Design Program located in the heart of Downtown San Diego
The graphic design program at San Diego City College has a long history of mentoring strong designers who make a difference. Guided by accomplished, exceptional faculty who are working professionals, students learn to design for the real world. Frequently earning top awards, transfer scholarships and jobs, our graduates excel in the industry. At City, we ignite inspiration and student success with portfolios that demonstrate a unique voice, vision and viewpoint.
Each year we post the portfolios of our 2016 graduating class. At the American Institute of Graphic Arts San Diego 2016 Portfolio Review in May students showcased their work for judging by a panel of practicing professional judges. Thanks to dozens of designers who came out in support of the next generation and the generous sponsors who supported this event with cash prizes. Competing against four year public universities and private college design programs in San Diego, City College graduates brought home top honors. This year’s determined, hard working group under the dedicated leadership of Professor Sean Bacon brought home first place, second place and third place overall. They also garnered recognition and awards for Best Advertising, Identity & Branding, Cross Cultural Design, Design for Good, Interactive Design and Sustainability.
