This course gives you the chance to mix the old with the really new.
You can design a brand new font in Illustrator, make it in wood on the
latest laser-cutter, print it on a 150-year old hand-operated press
then scan it and manipulate it in Photoshop!

If you choose this course you will benefit from:

  • Good ongoing relationships with many employers including Peach
    Tree Packaging, Kraken Creatives, Communique, Atlantic Whale
    Foundation and Boxing Clever, who have taken students over the years
  • Award-winning staff with expertise in a range of disciplines from
    editorial and book design to webbased design and typography. Staff
    will discuss their work with you so you can connect what they do with
    what you learn. All staff are active researchers and ensure that this
    feeds into their teaching
  • Access to dedicated design studios, the best software packages for
    page layout, image manipulation and multimedia design, a metal type
    workshop, printmaking workroom, screen printing studio, photographic
    resources and a digital print bureau
  • Exchange programme with two Chinese Universities – Hong Kong
    Polytechnic University (HKPU) and Zhejiang University of Media and
    Communications (ZUMC)

You will begin by exploring the basics of typography and visual
communication before being encouraged to experiment with type and
image to solve graphic design problems.

The course is built around the four key themes of graphic design:
typography, visual communication, design in context, and integrated
design. These happen at the same time each year (but always with
different briefs) so that you get a real sense of achievement as you

In your third year you will be able to focus on building your
portfolio in your area of interest, for example print, editorial and
book design, advertising, corporate design or digital media. The
course culminates in a school-wide degree show that attracts employers
from industry. I found the course to be exceptional both academically
and socially. It was great bouncing ideas off new friends to achieve a
polished final product.
