Digital Media and Design

Your future.  Your choice.

The thought of going to a television studio was the coolest thing ever!

With constantly changing technology and ever increasing reliance on digital content, the Digital Media and Design (DMD) program at CAL is poised to get students ready for a variety of careers in the creative services industries. In this hands-on program, CAL students learn techniques for image development; they capture, create, and edit video and photo files for media productions and projects. Developing concepts through scripts and storyboards, CAL DMD students practice design, animation, digital storytelling, photography, and videography for film, web, and other types of multimedia productions. Second-year DMD students work on projects brought to CAL by professionals within our community.

What does DMD have to offer?

King of Roads

CAL DMD students get the chance to work on real world projects. In the Fall of 2014 CAL started working with the advertising agency Lewis Creative on a project for the Troutdale Historical Society to develop an advertising campaign for a new museum celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Columbia River Highway. After a successful year of development and  paid summer internships the project has launched. See for yourself, it could be something you work on someday. King of Roads
