Darius LeBeaux

Bachelor of Interior Design

Darius LeBeaux didn’t come to LSU intending to study interior design. “I was a biology major first, and I found myself unhappy,” he shared.

When he was young, Darius was interested in interior design without necessarily realizing it: he would re-arrange the furniture in his room every season, and when he arrived to new spaces he liked to run through to explore them, curious about the new interiors.

“I wanted to be able to use my creativity, and I was curious about interior design, so I decided to switch.”

That curiosity grew into passion. “What interests me the most about interior design is the design process: coming up with a concept, space planning, and construction documents – because every project has its own challenges. Those challenges make you think and learn something new every time.”

As a designer Darius aspires to create spaces “where

“After Hurricane Katrina, I lived in a FEMA trailer on my front yard,” she shared. “Over those two years, I watched my house get rebuilt from the ground up. Having been amidst all the design decisions of the house I now inhabit, I have ever since then been fascinated with all things architecture and its related professions (construction, interior design, etc.)”

Graphic design | art | Britannica

Jacki Roig

Graphic design, the art and profession of selecting and arranging visual elements—such as typography, images, symbols, and colours—to convey a message to an audience. Sometimes graphic design is called “visual communications,” a term that emphasizes its function of giving form—e.g., the design of a book, advertisement, logo, or Web site—to information. An important part of the designer’s task is to combine visual and verbal elements into an ordered and effective whole. Graphic design is therefore a collaborative discipline: writers produce words and photographers and illustrators create images that the designer incorporates into a complete visual communication.

The evolution of graphic design as a practice and profession has been closely bound to technological innovations, societal needs, and the visual imagination of practitioners. Graphic design has been practiced in various forms throughout history; indeed, strong examples of graphic design date back to manuscripts in ancient China, Egypt, and Greece. As printing
