Harper College

Harper GRA program like none other


I give credit to the GRA program at Harper for most of my success as a designer.

As a student, the courses provided to me were invaluable in allowing me to master the Adobe applications and the process of file management. Thanks to these courses, I was able to quickly secure a position in the industry upon graduation.

The professors took the time to teach me the entire workflow of a project, from developing the concept to physically creating the piece straight off the printer. Learning how to perfect a project from start to finish is vital to your success as a designer working on a live project in the industry.

The GRA program allowed me to have access to a fully equipped pressroom which taught me how to correctly prepare files for print, operate several digital printers and physically construct a variety of projects for production. This knowledge was extremely valuable after starting my position as a graphic designer/production specialist at FASTSIGNS.

The resources, classes, instructors and opportunities in the GRA program at Harper are like none other. The GRA program is the reason I am where I am today and I couldn’t recommend it enough to anyone aspiring to have a career in the graphic arts industry. After Harper, I completed my bachelor’s degree from Dominican University in River Forest, IL where I graduated in May 2016.
