The Visual Production and Design Program @ Johnson U


Johnson University launched its Visual Production and Design program from within the School of Communication and Creative Arts Fall 2019.

This website exists to inform students (current, future, and alumni) about the school, events, classes, and projects associated with the school.

The BFA in Visual Production and Design at Johnson University is a multidisciplinary degree in visual design that allows students to explore audio/video, animation, graphic design, and web design with the goal of becoming excellent visual communicators in these target areas. Our students build on a foundation of visual design theory, history,  and practice with courses in design, typography, motion media, video production, 2D and 3D animation, web design,  app design, user experience, and many other related visual communication disciplines before embarking on a holistic culminating project.

As creative visionaries, learn to hone and expand your wildest visual dreams. Turn fantasy into reality through video production and animation and become fluent in the language of web and visual design. Through Johnson’s Visual Media Arts Production and Design degree students dive into the realm of creative thought, learning both the technical and conceptual aspects of filmmaking animation, graphic design and web design. Students build professional portfolios through hands-on projects and immersive experience. Graduates demonstrate diverse technical skills and a solid creative vision. Prepared for careers as visual storytellers, multimedia artist, and creative communicators, graduates have the opportunity to make a lasting mark in a technology saturated world.


A Unique Approach

Many schools focus on individual disciplines, but in today’s market we believe that visual designers must be fluent in a variety of visual media in order to stay competitive.
