Design: Graphic Design and Communication A Level

Design: Graphic Design and Communication A Level

The course is centred on the following design areas: branding/logo, illustration, multimedia, packaging and typography. In the first half of the course we will develop your skills and capabilities to use graphical techniques through a series of teacher-led short projects, culminating in your own extended design project.

You will study the work of leading graphic designers and will be encouraged to use a range of media for 2D, 3D, hand and digital work. You will develop your abilities to use both freehand and CAD software to communicate your ideas.

In the second half of the course you will build upon the techniques learnt and will have the freedom to explore your own project work.
