THe Details
Course Overview

Overview: The FD Graphic Design and Illustration degree utilises visual communication as a means of problem solving for clients, firstly through the development of personal style and process before tapering this individuality into a more industry ready skillset. There are many creative opportunities for visual experimentation and students are encouraged to develop their own interests and strengths before ultimately becoming industry aware, ready and capable of succeeding in the creative sector. Students will begin to create a portfolio of skills and final pieces which will showcase individuality and flair, whilst understanding the professional requirements of the visual communication industries. The programme looks to nurture visual problem solving through the use of creative drawing and thinking, digital manipulation and experimentation for both the fields of graphic design and illustration. Students are encouraged to push the conventions and boundaries of contemporary graphics and illustration. All of the projects, modules and assignments for this programme are industry facing or simulated, with the aim of producing creative individuals who are ready and trained for the workplace. Whether working as freelance designers or entering into a design studio or collaboration, students are honed both artistically and professionally. Client negotiation, budget planning and design process work hand in hand with ideas generation, industry software and artistic expression.
