Advertising Design

Synergy of words and images

The essence of this field is not just design, but communication, especially how images and words work together to grab attention and convey a message. FIT’s Advertising Design program produces thinkers who can cut through the visual clutter and develop breakthrough television, billboard, print, and—increasingly important in today’s marketplace, internet ads—that get noticed. You’ll hone your design, technical, market strategy analysis, and presentation abilities. You’ll develop the creative skills for specific aspects of the industry, including image creation, art direction, concept development, and copywriting. The program concludes with a thesis project and a juried design exhibition. You’ll graduate with a strong portfolio to present to potential employers.

You’re immersed in the industry through field trips, internships, and a professional faculty with their own successful careers in the field.
  • The Advanced Advertising Design Workshop offers an agency-like experience where students work with actual clients and enter their projects in industry competitions.
