Course Information

Graphic Design Graphic Design surrounds us: it is the signs we read, the products we buy, and the rooms we inhabit. Graphic designers find beauty within limitations, working towards the ultimate goal of visually communicating a message. Using a language of type and imagery, graphic designers try to make every aspect of our lives defined and beautiful. If you are interested in Art and Computing with an aspect of Enterprise, then this course is for you.

There will be an introduction to the ‘digital darkroom’ – editing and managing images using the Adobe Creative Suite with Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign software. You will be encouraged to use your imagination, practice creative teamwork and develop lateral thinking abilities – all skills essential in the workforce. You will also discover the creative potential through hand-made and computer-generated imagery.

This course is designed to develop technical and visual skills by completing short challenging briefs across a range of subjects. Hand drawing is encouraged in the development of ideas and the construction of contemporary graphics and illustrations. The course is devised from several studio areas covering a mixture of genres and themes using hand drawn, Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign tools.
