Ten Graphic Design majors recently traveled to New York City for a company tour of VICELAND, courtesy of Art Director Gerry Weber, who is also a Graphic Design class of 2010 alumnus. Students, along with Program Director Suzanne Glover, ​had the opportunity to spend time with ​the ​Champlain ​alumnus to learn about company culture, gain exposure to new and emerging industries, meet recruiters, and expand their professional networks and aspirations as they begin to plan for life after college.

VICE Media is a North American digital media and broadcasting company that has expanded primarily into youth and young adult-focused digital media, including online content verticals and related web series, the news division VICE News, a film production studio, and a record label among other properties. In February 2016, VICE Media launched a cable television network in Canada and the United States known as Viceland—a millennial-targeted network which draws upon the resources of the lifestyle-oriented verticals of VICE.

“I thought the highlights were touring the VICE offices, learning from Gerry about the design culture at VICE, and seeing some of the behind-the-scenes ​video footage and sizzle reels that embody the VICE brand.” – Hannah Campbell, Director – Alumni Relations & Annual Giving
