• Graphic Design Course

    What is graphic design about? Computers or graphic design? The answer lies squarely with design, the shape, form, texture and colour that comprise document layouts. The graphic design courses focuses on ideas, visualisation, and implementing type, design and colour theory to effectively create the design project. Which is where the computer side comes into play. Including elements from our Indesign and Photoshop courses we put together visually professional looking documents.

    Even for those with limited or no experience of either Adobe InDesign or Adobe Photoshop by the end of the design course you will be putting together a variety of spreads including flyers & brochures plus a project* of your own design.
