Todd Goehner (Professor): One of the coolest things about the graphic design department here is that we are really progressive, and we always try to be on the forefront of where the graphic design industry is.
Dave Andrus (Professor): Graphic design classes are taught by doing. We don’t spend that much time talking about stuff, at least not in an abstract way.
