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.
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.
No formal entry qualifications are required for Level 2 courses.
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.
