Program Overview

Humber’s Graphic Design advanced diploma program develops creative and strategic designers who execute for a wide range of interactive media such as web and screen, user interaction, motion design, and also traditional print products. While learning and mastering design concepts, you will generate creative solutions and produce visuals for effective multimedia communication. As you gain knowledge and skills, you will be exposed to the many topics and tasks required in contemporary design work. You will become strategically and typographically skilled and master digital, editorial, interactive, information, motion, user experience, user interface and web design techniques. Additionally, relevant programming and entrepreneurship knowledge will round out a comprehensive skill set.

As part of our interaction and design common platform cluster, this program will expose you to many aspects of design and allow you to collaborate with students in related fields. The first semester is shared with the Multimedia Design and Development program. Your exposure to different types of design work and common programming elements will enable you to investigate your options and choose a focus prior to your second year of study.

Also, you will explore the many facets of graphic design and be instructed and trained on industry-based technology and software. Cross-disciplinary projects will allow you to develop collaborative and teamwork skills while preparing you for workplace environments. This program includes the unique opportunity to work with BuildingF, our in-house ad agency, working on real projects for clients while building your portfolio and professional contacts.

Work Placement

Students will participate in a mandatory work placement which follows the last semester of study. Students research the design industry to take advantage of opportunities to market themselves to prospective employers to find their own work placement locally or abroad.

Students also have exposure to real-world projects through Humber’s BuildingF.

This program has a common platform with Multimedia Design & Development, giving you 2 choices after the first semester.

BuildingF brings marketers and agencies together with advanced students from virtually any Humber program to produce strategic creative content and technology solutions. Instead of just being given a grade for assignments, students are provided with a chance to work with real clients, on actual accounts, receiving first-hand experience in the field.

The disciplines that can be accessed through BuildingF include anything found in a modern advertising, design or PR agency, including brand experience design, communications marketing, advertising design, writing, production, and much more.

Bianca DiPietro

Bianca DiPietro was born to be a designer, raised in a creative environment by a mother who was both a traditional illustrator and a teacher at Sheridan College. As a young adult, Bianca followed her destiny and entered the Graphic Design program through York/Sheridan, graduating summa cum laude with an honours bachelor degree in 2009. After graduating, Bianca decided to continue her education and enrolled in the Master of Design program at York University, basing her thesis on the arbitrary relationship between letterforms and their associated sounds in the English language. During her master's studies, she was also involved in a groundbreaking research project that involved end-user-focused testing with look-alike medication labels using simple typographic cues (eg. bold type or all capital letters) as the only differentiator.

Upon completing her master's, Bianca found a job in editorial design at a nationally distributed health magazine. She later moved on to a senior role at a division of Yellow Pages, leading a team of six designers on a variety of creative assignments. As design technologies evolved, Bianca found herself back at school part time learning HTML, CSS, Javascript and JQuery. With these web capabilities in her toolbox, Bianca secured a senior web designer position at a boutique agency in Hamilton; it was here she also expanded her horizons into Wordpress, social media and SEO/SEM. Since 2009, Bianca has also run her own business as a freelance designer.

In 2014, Bianca returned to her roots and began teaching courses in typography, communication design and more as a contracted instructor at George Brown College and Sheridan College. As a young teacher, Bianca has been especially successful at not only connecting with students as an educator but as a contemporary who better understands their cultural wavelength. The complementary acts of teaching and learning have helped Bianca realize that teaching is her greatest passion, and to share her enthusiasm for design with others is among life’s most rewarding experiences.

Bianca loves collaborating with creative individuals and teams to develop sustainable design solutions for all kinds of challenges and problems. She has deep expertise in design-thinking process, including research and prototyping, as well as strategic thinking, critical thinking, systems thinking and storytelling through design. Currently, she is the program co-ordinator for the Graphic Design Advanced Diploma program. She is actively exploring international partnerships to elevate the educational experience and broaden her cultural relevancy. She has recently spoken and attended a conference at Fontys University in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, as well as participated as a charrette advisor at KEA in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Bianca is an active volunteer and on the board of directors for the RGD (Registered Graphic Designers) offering her expertise on the education committee. She also volunteers her design services to the Hamilton Roller Derby League, producing all their print and web materials. While Bianca no longer plays in the roller derby league, she remains active and has run over 20 half-marathons, and is a member of a local rowing team. Bianca enjoys spending her free time outdoors in her garden, at the cottage or just relaxing and recharging by the water.
