Digital Design is about telling a story, beautifully.

Every brand, company, and movement, has as story, a personality, a purpose. Visual designers bring that to life through graphics, logos, posters, photography, web designs, and virtually anything else that the human eye can see.

Digital designers are responsible for how a product—and all the messaging and advertising around that product—looks. They’re involved in everything from choosing colors and fonts to building icons, graphics, and layouts.

Diana matei

"I loved the class because I have been challenged in ways I haven't experienced before. While knowing the software, Michelle has done a good job of pushing me in a creative way towards doing more and achieving more than I thought I could. The biggest take away I had from the class is just how real life it felt. The time constraints and situations we were put in were incredibly realistic, which is an environment I’ve never been in before."

"Digital Design taught me an immense amount about design on a practical level, while giving me an idea as to what pursuing a career in design may be like. I learned how important design is in our everyday lives and the amount of consideration involved in the development of everything around us."

"All of the things that we learned in Design are completely relevant to so many fields today! It was definitely fast-paced and out of my comfort zone slightly, but felt so current. We learned about brand communication and development, as well as the software that comes with it!"

Camelia Betancourt, Iowa State '20
Noelle betkowski

"Design is very multi-faceted and all of its branches/fields take a lot of work; for the most part, you get back what you put into it. Michelle, our teacher, has been one of the most supportive and constructive teachers I've ever had, creatively and otherwise."
