Graphic + Media Design students are doing amazing things in the “real-world” thanks to our well-established Internship Program. Sage students have done internships in Boston, New York City, London, Germany, and throughout the greater Capital Region of New York. Students cite the Internship Program as one of their best experiences at Sage, and many of our alumni have been hired as a direct result of their internships.
Our Graphic + Media Design students take advantage of many exciting opportunities to build their skills, their networks, and their portfolios with comprehensive reviews by professional organizations such as the Art Director’s Club and AIGA. In the Sage AIGA Student Club, students network with members of AIGA Upstate and organize speaker and travel opportunities. Over the years, AIGA students have traveled to London, Italy, Greece, San Francisco, Memphis, Denver, Minneapolis, Pasadena, and NYC.
Sage faculty and students have worked on many design projects for the greater Capital Region community including the Albany Institute of History & Art, Museum Association of New York, Albany Public Library, Albany Tulip Festival, Stratton V.A. Medical Center, and many others. In addition, Sage regularly hosts an impressive list of nationally recognized speakers including Milton Glaser, Paul Bacon, Aaron Draplin, Luba Lukova, and Paul Shaw.
Jami Frosell – Class of 2018
I’ve always loved the saying "If you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room.” During my time at Sage, I was in a room surrounded by incredibly talented individuals and faculty that taught me critical design skills. Every class was full of students who truly wanted to be there. I was pushed, challenged, and walked away with valuable skills and a great experience.
