A graphic design course at a college has become a hot topic of discussion after a graphic designer who graduated from the course told MTV News he’s been told by administrators he’s not welcome back.
The course is called Graphic Design: The Art and Science of Design, which was first offered at the University of Houston and has since been offered by more than 40 schools.
The graphic designer, who goes by the name Tylor, told MTV that he’s heard from other students who are unhappy with the course, but he doesn’t know how many are still enrolled.
Tylor said he learned to design for his first job at a young age, but didn’t realize how much work it took to do so until he attended the University at Buffalo.
He says he learned a lot in the course.
He said he’s always wanted to design a career for himself, but couldn’t figure out what he wanted to do after college.
He’s been teaching at various schools in the Buffalo area since 2012.
Tyrone McAlister, a graphic design instructor at the college, told CBS News that Tylors course has had “a lot of controversy” among students and faculty.
Tydor told MTV he was offered the position because he was a graphic artist who was already working at a graphic designers company and wanted to start a career with a company where he was going to be an instructor.
He also said that he believes his course was a good choice for a college in the area because he had a lot of students that were interested in graphic design, including students who had not taken the course previously.
McAlister said that the students in the class are passionate about their courses and would be excited to work with Tylorian and his team on future projects.
He added that the graphic design courses have been successful for the school, as students have been able to gain confidence and get a job in the industry.
Tynor told CBS New York that he and his co-author, Tylorians co-founder, have been working on a series of other courses for the university.
