Students from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky, were able to learn a bit more about graphic design as they traveled to the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio, according to Cincinnati-based news channel WXIX-TV.

The field trip to the stadium was intended to show the students how graphic design effects a baseball team franchise, and how that is incorporated into the many companies and businesses that graphic designers work for. They delved into the creative process along with how to adjust to deadlines, and how to adapt in the industry, according to the news source.

The field trip included a tour of the stadium and the Hall of Fame. In the Hall of Fame, the tour guide explained how each of the designs and logos were developed. They also were able to attend a question and answer forum with the Cincinnati Reds creative department manager, the media outlet reports.

Graphic design students can expect to earn approximately $42,000 when they enter the field after graduation, which was the average annual salary for individuals in this profession in 2008, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
