Students will be given a range of projects which challenge them to explore different areas of graphic communication practice including: typography, illustration, design for print (e.g. page layout and poster design), design for screen (e.g. web and interface design) and packaging. A Final Major Project at the end of each year encourages further specialisation allowing for more in-depth knowledge and sophisticated understanding of a specific area. Students are encouraged to exhibit and promote their work in live briefs and exhibitions during the year. Emphasis is given to raising awareness of career demands and the many employment opportunities in the creative sector.
