Course content

This course will allow you to develop your own practice in the field of graphic design set against the context of contemporary global visual culture, ideas and the creative industries today.

Overall, the course provides an exciting space for debate and learning in graphic design practice, where great work will grow and new process and collaborative models will be explored to maximise the potential for future projects and design thinking. You will examine the building blocks of effective and award winning studio work and design culture; from examining the context of design, the history and theory underpinning it, to new and emergent models of creative process and business insights that can support your creative ambition and personal development.

It is these professional organisations and award-winning practitioners who have helped inform the course, alongside many years and experience of growing new thinking and teaching in the field.
