Graphic and web design courses are practical and conceptual, teaching students to present information in a memorable and accessible way. These courses give visual communicators the technical skills to become graphic designers, art directors, art production managers, content managers, illustrators or layout artists. Typography, pre-press, print design, digital design and publishing, calligraphy and illustration are explored in detail. Web design courses help students take user ideas and requirements, and turn them into functional, attractive websites. Learning to work efficiently from a design brief is a key outcome. Ensuring frameworks are well suited to desktop and mobile is critical.
Graduates will be proficient in industry-standard software such as Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Potential job outcomes: app designer, app developer, software developer, web developer, content manager, information systems manager or entrepreneur. With opportunities to work online, it may be a good fit for people seeking flexibility and geographic mobility.
