Design is everywhere you look. The furniture we sit on, the homes in which we live, the books and posters we read and the apps and interfaces we use; all have been considered and designed for an optimal user experience. Designers create order and meaning out of chaos, and thus fulfill a critical role in our society. They organize our lives at almost a subconscious level. Graphic designers, in particular, have the critical role of getting a message across to an audience.
At OBU, students are encouraged to think critically and ethically about the world we live in and, in a way, the world we create for ourselves to inhabit. OBU students possess the desire and ability to engage tough questions and solve real and pressing problems through good and thoughtful design.

What are OBU graduates doing with their Graphic Design degrees?
Students find a variety of contexts in which to work professionally -- large and small design firms as well as in-house creative departments. Some stay local and some choose to set out on an adventure that leads them to places like New York City or Washington D.C.
