Gateway Technical College’s GDA club (Graphic Design Association) toured two innovative advertising / design agencies in downtown Milwaukee on May 22, 2014.
Sōsh is a social media marketing firm representing a variety of companies, including Johnsonville Brats and Snapper Mowers. Social media is not a mere department within Sōsh, but rather their forte and “raison-d´être.” Students learned about this emergent media, its unique requirements of designers, and its potential for dynamism and power.

Welcome to the Gateway Technical College Graphic Communications Site. This is your communications central for all things related to the department: the annual student design show, and information about GTC’s Graphic Communications Program for Students.
Gateway Graphic Comm students, along with iMET Center Engineering and Fabrication Students (and all GTC students as well as the public at large) are using (and invited to find out more about using) the FAB LAB. Check out the video below.
The Graphics Instructors wish to extend a special thanks to the Racine Campus Library staff for sharing their work home with us. The staff has been super amidst the shuffle of setup, show run, and takedown.
A special THANKS to April Gandy, who served as the frontline unofficial greeter for our judges, collector of judges forms, informal show docent/ guide, and salvager of work lost to poor spray-mount. Thanks April!
