SUPPORT BUTTON 11.png

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.

UI Design

The user interface (UI) is a critical part of any software product. When it’s done well, users don’t even notice it. When it’s done poorly, users can’t get past it to efficiently use a product.
