This programme offers you an exciting opportunity to study graphic design and the wider role of the designer in society. The programme is about creative thinking and developing the knowledge and technical skills appropriate for employment in the creative industries. You will have the opportunity to develop practical graphics-focused techniques and processes in both studio and Mac-based environments. You will also have the chance to enhance your wider creative skills by undertaking experimental workshops in drawing, print making and photography. Modules in employment-focused elements, such as self-promotion and event planning, will help to prepare you for employment in the creative industries. You will also study design history modules, which will encourage you to develop a rich contextual basis for your work as an emerging graphic design practitioner. The course is diagnostic in nature, and through an exciting range of creative assignments and workshop briefs, we will help you to decide on your design direction. At the end of the course, you will have created a portfolio of work that will support you in making applications to top up to a full BA (Hons) or for employment within the creative industries.
