Graphic Design is a powerful and fully-engaging discipline. Graphic design takes a highly-motivated, disciplined and independent thinker who looks within the problem to find the right solution. In the classroom, Jeanne Sperry encourage students to be effective problem-solvers first, and to reach for higher levels of achievement, commitment and responsibility, and to make things of value.
With a strong emphasis on service-learning, her classroom becomes a real world experience which makes a significant contribution to help clients within the university and surrounding community, while giving the student a high level of responsibility and reward.
Her focus in the classroom is on building a strong foundation of graphic design principles and problem-solving skills, with a focus on building a strategy plan, effective research, and a high level of technical skill. She not only practices this in her own graphic design firm, but stresses this in the classroom, as well.
