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.
