Live classes are supported by an active class forum where your tutor provides additional information and feedback outside of class times.

Live classes are also recorded, so you can review them in your own time or log in to learn at a time that works best for you.

What you'll learn

Graphic Design Principles

An introduction to the principles of graphic design for print and web, with a focus on print collateral.

The Graphic Design Process

The course takes you through the graphic design process, from the initial brief and ideation process through to the final product.

Design Elements

You'll be introduced to some of the fundamentals of graphic design with a focus on understanding layout, using hierarchy and creating visual styles. We'll look at the practical role of elements such as line, form, value and grids. You'll also learn some technical theory, including colour modes and resolution.

Design Brief

Start work on a design brief part-way through the course. Apply your new skills, as you learn them, to a practical project echoing a real-life graphic design task.

Software

The course provides an overview of graphic design-specific programs included in the Adobe Creative Suite, looking at the purpose of each, how they complement each other and work together as a whole. You'll learn to select the correct application for the task and practice using them together to achieve the best results.

Photoshop: We take you through basic image manipulation, drawing and painting.

Illustrator: Your tutor will demonstrate how to use basic Illustrator tools to create vector images, including drawing, creating basic logos and gaining an understanding of how vector-based images are used within graphic design.

InDesign: Look at how to set up documents in InDesign, how to place elements created in other software packages into the document, and effective layout and grid techniques.

Use the software to create projects and take them all the way from initial brief stage to the final product ready for print or web.
