Course summary

Overview

Developed in partnership with commercial directors, designers, photographers and typographers, our course is aimed at those who want to enhance their existing professional portfolio and expand their understanding of current and emerging trends in graphic design practice.

Learning by doing, you will explore a range of design methodologies, then put them into practice with ‘live’ collaborative briefs, creating valuable links with the professional design community.

We provide you with opportunities to start developing your professional, entrepreneurial, creative and technical skills with an aim to harness radical, original approaches and solutions to current visual communication design issues, working freelance or in-house across the globe.

Course information

This course explores the ever-changing landscape of graphic design, rethinking visual language by emphasising style, effective communication and future contexts.

The course will engage you in diverse forms of traditional and contemporary media to build critical understanding. It will enhance your individual design thinking and practical experience within the context of an international perspective, a range of contemporary issues and exciting new trends – from generative and gaming design, modular layouts and modern ‘retro’ to the positives of negative space and the brightest pastels.

Career prospects

The practical nature of the course has been designed specifically for the development of professional careers within the creative industries.

You will be encouraged to adopt a creative, enquiring and critical approach to the graphic image and its uses in contemporary practice. Furthermore, you will graduate with relevant industry experience, having worked with a variety of design professionals.

Depending on your individual study, you may also benefit from a range of transferrable skills highly sought after by future employers, including: team working, working independently, critical thinking, report writing, project management, ideas generation, presentation and finance.

National and international graduate career prospects are many and varied and in the past have included: education, curating, film, television, special effects, print and publishing, multimedia, advertising, animation, moving image, web and interactive design, video games, music, marketing and public relations. We equip our students to be able to pursue graphic design, typographic design, type design, website design, new media design, magazine design publishing, art direction, design management or research.
