Visual communications is all about using images, design, and print to convey meaning and emotion to an audience. The print and graphics industry supports many different types of good-paying jobs. From graphic designers, to mechanical engineers, to sales representatives, there are a wide range of opportunities for young workers. If you like being creative, or doing hands-on work, the print and graphics industry may be the right fit for you.
We help connect students with resources such as scholarships, internships, and job opportunities in the print and graphics industry. Sign up for our updates about the latest opportunities.
We support educators who want to better connect educational content with industry demand. At ExploreVizComm, we develop and promote opportunities to get teachers and students outside of the classroom and have real-world experiences in the industry. Educators that partners with us can also get discounted access to the iLearning center of the Printing Industries of America. We encourage educators in the states that we serve* to have their students enter our annual student poster competition, which includes scholarship prizes up to $500.
* ExploreVizComm’s student poster contest is open to students in the states of OR, WA, HI, ID, UT, MT, and AK
