This two year graphic design course is the art of communicating messages, concepts and ideas using text and images, both on screen and in print. The results of the graphic design process can be seen in websites, magazines, DVDs and CDs, video games, film credits, books, posters and flyers - anywhere that text and images appear together. A Graphic Designer’s job involves producing exciting, engaging design products that will inform/ entertain the target audience and will also satisfy the requirements and agenda of the client. This course aims to deliver foundation graphic design skills, and explore issues such as how to get great ideas, how to develop layouts, how to produce professional standard designs and how to present design work at a professional level.
