Overview

This forward-thinking and multi-award-winning course will give you a thorough grounding and understanding of the commercial applications of graphic design. Our aim is to develop creative thinkers and visual communicators who aren’t confined by the conventional boundaries of the industry. We encourage you to think imaginatively to develop engaging and purposeful ideas, and to execute them beautifully. The first year is partly shared with our Illustration course and is about learning core skills and finding the right pathway for you. Find out more about the Illustration pathway. Later, we focus on professional projects, emphasising commercial constraints and expectations; as well as digital projects featuring interaction and motion. In the final year you’ll produce a high-quality portfolio tailored around your career aspirations.
