About the course
Graphic Design: Concept Development will guide you through the creative process required to produce original, successful design concepts. Responding to a variety of projects you will put your skills in practice and create work that stands out from the crowd.
Through group and one-to-one discussions, you'll learn how to evaluate work and strengthen your expertise. You will build your design practice further, building confidence in your approach whilst responding to design projects with a client focus.
With guidance from a practicing design professional, you'll be encouraged to push your concepts further and take risks to develop a personal voice and style. An off-site field trip or talk from an in-industry speaker will also be included to inform your research.
Computer use is optional on this course. No tuition in software is given; however, you will be advised about graphic design software, and which programs would be appropriate to finalise ideas.
The pace and workload will require commitment. To receive the maximum benefit from the course, where possible, students should allow time to work on their projects between classes.
