“Design firms uniquely tackle how to garner the attention of myriad audiences who are, quite simply, distracted,” noted Asst. Dean Erika Massaquoi. “Hence, there is a premium on information and experience-oriented design that can grab audiences, communicate effectively, and service clients.”

“The AIGA has identified this as  a trend towards an ‘attention economy,’” said Massaquoi. “Thus it is not surprising that this year we saw a further spike of interest in Graphic Design—I believe the velocity of media has garnered this student interest.”
