L6 Graphics

Welcome to

The Graphics course gives you the opportunity to develop a personal and structured approach to project work. You’ll explore ideas and materials, develop your critical faculties in both practical and written work and acquire a high level of design, presentation and making skills.

 

There are a huge range of career options relating to art and design, from architecture to graphic design, film and television to museum work, animation and teaching. This is a specialised course that involves work in areas of illustration, advertising graphics and typography. You will be expected to show proficiency in drawing and painting as well as exploring a wide variety of techniques and ideas related to both art and design.

 

Graphic computer-based work will be used as a creative method to develop and realise ideas. You will study the work of other artists, designers and photographers, including work from primary sources during visits to galleries and museums.

What role can Graphic Design play in promoting an awareness of current social and political issues? This is a theme we will explore within this project, many designers have used design as a way of communicating concerns on current social issues. We would like you to do the same.
