Jobs in the graphic design field are expected to grow by 13 percent within the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Graphic design schools can provide individuals with the knowledge and tools they need to advance in this expanding industry.

"We're pleased that the editors at Graphic Design USA chose to recognize one of our product designs for an award."

RPI won the award under the "Books" category because of its recent success in print media. The school beat out 8,000 other competitors. The American Graphic Design award competition has been recognizing designers for over 40 years.
