Graphic Design is the only thing the Creative Center does, with some focused on subfields within the field (photography, illustration, marketing, etc.). The school's director, a successful graphic designer himself, created the school with the main focus on training young designer to be prepared and full of knowledge that was important to those hiring graphic designers. A three year Bachelor program, you start your first year, first semester, with just traditional art before come in second semester learning the computer side of things, which in the foundation for all of second and third year. The CC also has a class on the Fundamentals of Communications, and you give countless presentations, because this is a greatly important part of the job. You get the chance at mock interviews and real on campus interviews! Along with the chance to get your portfolio reviewed by professionals in the field, with events like Meet the Pros, a two day seminar where you go with your classmates to listen to a whole bunch of professionals in the graphic design field, and at the end of the second day, a massive portfolio review. Along with an on campus Portfolio Review night, again, with real professional coming in to take the time to review your portfolio and give you the opportunity for feedback.

At the CC, you are given project after project, several major projects happening within the same time and may even be due the same week! Classes are five times a week, from 8:30-3:30, each day a different class. It's very easy to get left behind if you don't do the required work for that day. Almost all projects are to be turned in for a pro-review and handled back with corrections to make, in hopes that all projects will be worthy of landing in your portfolio.

There are several bulletins through the school listing not only scholarships, but jobs and internship opportunities as well. And a weekly email sent out on Mondays about job openings and internships in the Omaha area.
Review The Creative Center
It was great, all the teachers care about you doing well and want you to exceed. It only becomes a problem when you start to fall behind, because you are handed project after project with no pause; the Creative Center is suppose to mimic a work environment. Because the CC only focuses on graphic design, you really get loaded with so much information about the field and all it's subfields. You pull out more work then you would attending another college or university is half the time! And the quality of work the CC students produce speaks for itself. Taking trips to the printers, design firms/ad agencies, along with trips to the art museums and the zoo for live drawing, you're not just stuck inside a classroom all day. The CC also gives you opportunities to meet with professionals in the field (besides your teachers, that must have a minimum of 15 years in the field in order to teach), with events like Meet the Pros, Portfolio Review Night, and give you the chance at mock-interviews and real on-campus interviews, too. Meeting with the pros in the field and getting feedback on my portfolio was by far my favorite experience attending the Creative Center. You also get a chance to enter competitions such as the Addys, and the AIGA, well known awards in the graphic design field (not to mention the CC is loaded with awards from those competitions, student sector.). If I had a choice to attend this school again, I would, if I knew graphic design is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. It's a great school for those who are certain that this field is what they want to make a career in.
I really enjoy the one class all day format with plenty of time to work on projects. I honestly feel like I'm learning and I honestly feel motivated to try new things here. The instructors are experienced and currently working in the art field, and I find it greatly helpful and informative. This college is very active in the art community and actively assists students in being ready for their careers; sometimes students are even hired before they graduate. I'm very honoured and privileged to attend.
