MIAD named Top Design School for sixth year; two students receive top honors
For the sixth consecutive year, Graphic Design USA (GDUSA) magazine has named MIAD a Top Graphic Design School. This distinction recognizes colleges across the country that excel in preparing students to work in graphic design careers after graduation.
GDUSA also recognized MIAD Communication Design students Erin Gray ’22 and Carli Jordan ’21 as 2021 Students to Watch.
“Communication Design is something that I consume daily and that I have a connection with, consciously and subconsciously. For me, it’s about expression and the transmission of important messages,” Erin said.
GDUSA’s Students to Watch list recognizes top students rising in the design field and growing within their programs.
“During my time at MIAD, I have learned the importance of process, presentation and failure. All of which have rounded my skills and readied me for real-world design jobs, as well as the work experiences and industry knowledge I have gained from my professors,” Carli said.
