The VCFA MFA in Graphic Design Program Blog


May 19, 2017

A handful of VCFA folks will be presenting at the 12th annual UCDA Design Education Summit: Hand & Machine. This national summit for design educators, chairs, and students, continues an ongoing community created specifically for graphic design educators with many opportunities for professional participation and development.

Hand and Machine will focus on the return to traditional techniques in design education and its contrast with digital design. The conference spans traditional “hand-made” techniques to cutting-edge interactive and experiential design.
