Get Ready for Fresh Graphic Design Inspiration on FIDMDigitalArts during Winter Quarter Portfolio Week!

It’s the end of another quarter here at FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, which means time for the FIDMDigitalArts Blog to showcase new portfolios by FIDM Graphic Design/Branding and Graphic Design/Entertainment graduates!

Whether you’re looking for design inspiration, new creative talent, or if you’re curious about what FIDM’s Graphic Design and Digital Media programs have to offer, check back during the next couple of weeks to get fresh design inspiration from new portfolios of graduating FIDM Graphic Design Students.

Students earning their Graphic Design degree at FIDM have the choice of specializing in either Branding or Entertainment graphics. Both programs prepare students for careers in Graphic Design within the apparel and entertainment industries and emphasize fundamentals such as sequential design and conceptual thinking.

Check out two outstanding graphic design portfolios from Fall Quarter 2012 below and browse our Portfolio archives here.
