Ringling College of Art and Design’s President, Dr. Larry R. Thompson, likes to say that his institution is changing the way the world thinks about art and design. And thousands of Ringling graduates – computer animators, graphic designers, illustrators, and fine artists among them – are doing that every day. Whether they’re working on Academy Award winning films, exhibiting in top international galleries, or designing new media experiences, one thing is for sure: the training they received at this internationally renowned campus in Sarasota has given them the foundation they needed to become the very best in their fields.

Even now, more than fifteen years after graduation, this training constantly informs his work.
