Statements of Excellence for Admission to Graduate School in Graphic Design

I want to help you get admitted to Graduate School in Graphic Design

In your statement for admission to graduate school in graphic design it is important that you support the needs of your social, environmental, professional and personal communities. As a visual communicator, you need to demonstrate the utmost respect for all major philosophical, religious and personal systems  of beliefs, always treating your subject matter with great dignity. I am highly knowledgeable in this area and ready to help with your statement for admission to graduate school in graphic design.

We see graphic design as a field with enormous power for the future. Images impact minds and we like to think of graphic design as a field that has great potential for contributing to progressive social change.

Advancement in graphic design is directly related to both education and experience. Graphic design professionals must stay current with design, communication, and technology trends, and should continually add samples of their best work to their portfolios. In order to advance, professionals may be required to earn not only a Bachelor's Degree but also a Masters in order to become eligible for higher-level positions and salaries with some employers. They may also choose to broaden their skills by adding a second specialty area such as marketing, web design, photography or written communication.

Graphic Design has come a long way from its days on a letterpress. Technology has aided design at every turn and made it increasingly more simple, shareable, and powerful. It would be an honor for us to assist you with your Personal Statement of Purpose so that you are accepted into a program of higher study in Graphic Design.

Ethics in Graphic Design

As someone with a PHD in social ethics, I am particularly concerned with the professional ethical issues that arise in this area. With the meteoric rise of commercial visual communication, coupled with evidence of how these visual messages can intrinsically affect the youth of our society, it is of utmost importance that a code of ethics be defined for the profession of graphic designers. Defining a code of ethics for graphic designers can no longer be argued to be a superfluous thing or a pursuit of the moralistic. It has become a must - a necessity - if design is to be seen as a responsible profession.

The Humanitarian Side of Graphic Design

There are many ways to move your career in a humanitarian direction as a graphic designer. Perhaps you’ve done some freelancing for NGOs already, or perhaps you’ve just completed your Bachelor’s degree and want to go in this direction.

It’s such a shame to see graphic designers on freelancer websites getting paid pennies and students paying to work for free. It might be your choice to fund your own trip and volunteer for an organization you really believe in, but that’s a whole different ball game. Work in the humanitarian sector can be sustainable, and you can earn a living that way. Making sure you are well prepared, with a master’s degree and some great experience will help make it easy. Let’s check out some paid internships and jobs you could go out and succeed in immediately.
