Graphic Design Course Content:
Graphic design is a vehicle for communication as well as self-expression. It is about communicating to inform, educate, entertain, persuade, or any combination of these.
In this course, you will learn the basic concepts and principles of Graphic Design, using a range of different techniques.
This course aims to foster self-confidence and the ability to develop informed design strategies. You are also encouraged to bring your own interests and experiences to the course.
You will engage with a variety of contextual and design issues such as user-centred design, emerging technology, sustainability, information design, service design and interactive design.
During the course, you will develop your understanding and knowledge of how, why and where graphic design exists. In addition, you will examine how it relates to society and culture through investigation and exploration of international examples.
