Alumni Spotlight: FIDM Graphic Design Grad, Catherine Cardelucci, Featured on Fashion Site, “College Fashionista”

College Fashionista, a fashion blog site about college fashion styles and trends on campuses around the world, has published an interview conducted by current FIDM Student, Marko Alejo, featuring FIDM Graphic Design Alumna, Catherine Cardelucci.

Catherine-Cardelucci-FIDM-Graphic-Design-AlumnaCardelucci graduated from FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising’s Graphic Design/Branding program in 2009 and speaks to the role that graphic design has in the fashion industry.

“Graphic design actually contributes enormously to fashion. People tend to think that [graphic design] is just about packaging, posters and websites, ” says Cardelucci. “If you look deeper into your favorite designer you will realize that their identity and branding is just as important as the garment itself. Look at Louis Vuitton for instance. It would not be what it is without its iconic trademark ‘LV’ pattern. Their simple graphic is what gives the brand its identifiable status.”

In the Graphic Design/Branding program at FIDM, Students study creative expression in all aspects of print media, including logo development, corporate identity, product branding and licensing, packaging, collateral material, and graphics for apparel products.
