This course is ideal for anyone looking to learn and develop their skills in typography; poster, editorial and digital design or simply study the effective use of visual design within communication. Ideal for beginners and those with intermediate-level skills.

Through a combination of theory, digital based workshops, group collaborations and practical application, you will be introduced to layout, composition, type and image across digital and paper-based formats. 

Graphic Design is all about finding your method to entertain, communicate, educate and inform. There’s no ‘right answer’ and you will be supported by your tutor to explore different styles to reach the goal of the brief. As well as developing creative design strategies, we encourage you to bring your own experiences and interests to your work.

During the digitally focussed course, you will be given a fundamental working knowledge of the most popular software packages used by designers and develop a more critical outlook to visual communication.

Do you want to know the difference between a TIFF and a GIF? If you want to know more about graphic design, whether you are looking for a new career or if you work in a complementary profession, this is the course for you.

The tasks in this course will see you designing business collateral and other activities that will help you apply your newly learned skills and knowledge in real life. You shall cover ten different aspects of Graphic Design work, using case studies which, if developed, will stand as a completed portfolio on completion of the course.
