Technical Association of the Graphic Arts (TAGA)
Cal Poly is the first student chapter of the Technical Association of the Graphic Arts. TAGA is a hands-on, competitive Graphic Communication club (but we love having other majors too!). The core of what we do revolves around writing, designing, and producing a technical journal. The journal consists of technical papers written by students from within our GrC department, and explores aspects of the evolving print industry. The journal itself is completely student-produced from ideation to output, and created entirely in-house. Every year, we take the journal and compete at the annual TAGA conference with other student chapters from around the country. This year the conference will take place in Memphis, TN in March 2016.
Throughout the year, we also work on other projects that involve marketing, design, digital media, printed electronics, screen printing, and packaging. Students within our chapter have the opportunities to gain experience in print production, design, research, marketing, and leadership.
