This course is designed to prepare you for a range of careers in the field of Illustration and Graphic Communication. Throughout the course you will gain experience in the use of a wide range of traditional and digital media. You will have the opportunity to develop work towards a variety of projects including book and magazine publication, editorial work, children’s book illustration and advertising.
As you progress through the course the emphasis increasingly is on project work, working within the constraints expected of a professional practitioner in the creative industries.
You will gain experience of working on live projects, and will develop your knowledge of design production. In doing so, you will benefit from shared experience with other students within the UK and worldwide, and from our collaboration with overseas partners.
The final part of the course is focused around the professional portfolio with an emphasis on professional standards of working and support from staff whose experience best matches student interests. It is intended to provide an experience from which you can emerge as a creative designer able to work to professional standards.
