NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - When your attention is drawn to a message, whether on a T-shirt, an advertisement, or even the Web, you can often attribute it to a graphic designer.
Today Stephen F. Austin State University alumni who work professionally in the design arts shared their knowledge with those in SFA's graphic design program.
One speaker illustrates comics. Another one works with a Houston advertising firm with well-known clients, like IKEA. One SFA grad is a creative director for the magazine "Tyler Today."
And the electronic media was represented by a web designer.
The web is gaining on print, but designers believe there will always be work for both.
"It's always going to maintain a happy medium," said James Franco, an SFA graphic design student. "It may teeter totter on which is more valuable or not, but I think there will always be a demand for both of them."
The two day conference launched the newly formed AIGAA, SFA. It's a professional association for design.
