What's new in Multimedia?

With the start of the second semester, ROP Multimedia transitioned from designing in Adobe Illustrator to Photoshop and photography. While the students are learning the basics of Photoshop, they are simultaneously learning rule of composition for photography.

These posters represent a small portion of what these talented student designers produced.
If you are a Gahr student and interested in Graphic Design, I would welcome you to come by and speak with me, or your counselor, about joining the Mul…
