A successful graphic designer needs to have two distinct skillsets. More than being able to make beautiful, technically proficient work, designers must also be able to listen, understand, and translate client needs into actual products.
 
working on designsGraphic Design students work in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to create graphics for the tournament.
 
 
Students in Portola Jr/Sr High School's graphic design class got to practice working with a real world client by submitting logo and branding concepts to principal Mrs. Sheridan for the Feather River Shootout basketball tournament.
 
The winning design was used for the tournament t-shirt, plaques, programs, tournament signs and brackets, which were designed in class. It's always a thrill to see designs move from the virtual world to being printed on tangible products like t-shirts and banners.

Career Technical Education (CTE) classes are more than just learning; they're about opening doors to the future. Thank you to PJSHS Graphic Design teacher Mrs. Henson for bringing this experience to her students!
