Design is everywhere you look. The furniture we sit on, the homes in which we live, the books and posters we read and the apps and interfaces we use; all have been considered and designed for an optimal user experience. Designers create order and meaning out of chaos, and thus fulfill a critical role in our society. They organize our lives at almost a subconscious level. Graphic designers, in particular, have the critical role of getting a message across to an audience.

At the Graphic Design program of Oklahoma Baptist University, students are encouraged to think critically and ethically about the world we live in and, in a way, the world we create for ourselves to inhabit. OBU students possess the desire and ability to engage tough questions and solve real and pressing problems through good and thoughtful design.
