SAVANNAH COLLEGE OF ART & DESIGN

Jamie Ray Slater has a Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from the Pennsylvania College of Technology, and a Masters of Fine Art degree in Graphic Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

 

What made you decide to go to design school?
I was a very curious individual from an early age, and had a love and affinity for drawing. In high school I attended vocational courses in graphic design, and enjoyed applying my drawing skills to pragmatic projects. When deciding on my future, I wanted to find what I was passionate about and pursue it. I have a passion for drawing, solving problems, and exploring the creative process.

Has it been a positive experience?
When I decided to obtain my Masters degree I came with the intention of shattering my preconceived notions of design, and exploring alternative viewpoints and design processes. I wanted to explore and fail, and under that model, my time in graduate school has been a fantastic learning experience.

Design Hero?
I am inspired by several designers including: El Lissitzky, Milton Glaser, and Wolfgang Weingart
