Graphic Design: Recommended Resources
This Research Guide supports the Studio Art and Art History programs at Virginia Tech which prepares students for a career in graphic design by focusing on conceptual thinking, problem solving, aesthetic development, user-experience design, and user-interaction.
The Art & Architecture Library houses books on graphic design. Below is a list of subject headings that will link you to materials in these areas.
