Graphic Design is the art of communicating information visually through the use of words and images (text and illustration). The course aims to develop your creative thinking skills and practical abilities. 


You will be introduced to the work of contemporary designers / illustrators and encouraged to experiment with a range of different techniques, processes, media and materials. Digital Media is an important element of the course alongside more traditional hand rendered techniques.

How will it be delivered?

You will complete a minimum of two coursework units, and then the final Graphics exam is a practical project which you have a few weeks to prepare for, and then create the final piece(s) in 10 hours.

Entry requirements

No formal entry qualifications are required for Level 2 courses.

Your next steps...

Future potential in this subject is very broad. Every printed page, poster or product has a graphic designer somewhere in the process. Graphic Designers all follow an Art and Design route in Further Education and Higher Education.
