Graphic Communication

Graphic Communication prepares students for careers in graphic design, computer graphics, printing press operations and printing management. The profession is the third largest industry in the United States, employing over 1 million individuals at over 60,000 companies.

Courses at Brighton High School cover: offset and screen printing, elements of design, designing products for end use, output options, customer service concepts, employment traits, and the mechanics of mass production equipment ranging from: digital cameras, platemakers, computer-to-film / plate, single-color printing press, two-color printing press, light tables, stitchers, paper cutter, folder, and other bindery equipment.

Using “state-of-the-market” software applications such as Adobe InDesign, Pagemaker, Photoshop and Illustrator – on Macintosh computers ( a standard in the graphics industry ) – students will understand all aspects of graphics from start-to-finish when they complete this course.

Successful students are creative, detail oriented and self-motivated. Knowledge of computer software and mechanical aptitude are a plus.

Graphic Communication is offered at Brighton High School.
