Our BA(Hons) Visual Communication in Graphic Design, encourages students to be experimental, developing their own distinct voice and style, whilst also building on conceptual and technical skills, required for industry and the workplace.
During the three year degree course you will develop a solid understanding of graphic design principles through workshops, creative projects ,contextual studies and real design projects recognised by industry to become a versatile designer.
The course is delivered by tutors working within the industry as professional graphics designers, illustrators, typographers, packaging designers and digital screen based media. This allows students to grow and express themselves creatively across a wide range of disciplines from design for print , digital including moving image, app design, website, packaging, publishing, brand identity, typography and persuasive visual messaging, and workshops such as screen printing, letterpress and illustration
Students are also encouraged to partake in live project briefs to help prepare them for their future careers within the creative industries. This enables students to work commercially and develop their preparation of artwork for production and presentational skills.
Graduates have not only gone on to work within the creative industries as graphic designers, but have also diversified into other roles such as art directors, photographers and illustrators.
We have had considerable successions with national design competitions with many students winning over the years, this has helped with our students graduating and working In Graphic Design consultancies in places such as Los Angeles , New York, Dubai, France, Switzerland, Tokyo & Italy.
