Graphics and Electronic Media

Graphics and Electronic Media (GEM) should be viewed as an introduction to a complex and constantly changing career field. The software packages and computer technology available today are able to assist in the production of a variety of media formats which previously were outsourced to printers or design agencies.

Students who are motivated by change, technology and creativity find GEM to be the perfect educational setting. They are introduced to the areas of desktop publishing, graphic design, photo editing and illustration. Students learn to use the digital press, large format printer and sign plotter. They are encouraged to enhance their own creativity by utilizing the most modern technology available.

The program is designed to allow interested students to bring together many areas of creative graphic design and production technologies. Skilled graphic artists have a creative flair required to produce eye-catching publications as well as the talent and confidence to use up-to-date technology to output their creations.

The ICTC’s GEM program is a certified Graphic Arts Education and Research Foundation PrintED® National Accreditation Program. Qualified GEM students may elect to take the PrintED® Introduction to Graphic Communications, and Advertising & Design certifications.
