Take that step to changing your career now!



This course has been designed to complete in 6-12 months with some flexibility depending on the time available to each individual student.


What you will Learn

MODULE ONE: Introduction to Graphic Design
Here we will look at the Graphic Design Industry, the technology and its environment so that you have a clear understanding of what you will need to address ahead.
MODULE TWO: The Design Process
This is one of the most important modules of this course. Here you will learn and develop a design process to help you to come up with inspiration and effective solutions for your Projects.
MODULE THREE: Page Layout & Design
Designing a layout for magazines, brochures etc requires a good understanding of Grids, Elements and Visual Hierarchy, so in this module, you will be presented with Projects and Assignments to help you to tackle these areas.
MODULE FOUR: Working with Clients
Whoever you are designing for, there will always be a need to understand them and what it is they wish to achieve. Even if you are designing for yourself. This module will provide you with real-life projects and assignments in which you will use what you have covered and developed from Modules 2 & 3.
MODULE FIVE: Corporate Identity
A favourite for many designers, but how do you get it right! This module goes through all of the stages required to design and produce an effective Logo and Corporate ID design. You will have exciting challenges in this module by carrying out some Projects and Assignments for logo designs. 
MODULE SIX: Branding
Understanding branding can and will provide you with a very useful tool that is applied to your design process. Different from Corporate ID and Logo Design, Branding Design involves elements of packaging design and visual communication – you will enjoy this module and the projects that come with it!

I was a complete beginner to Adobe CC, and every module within the course is designed to create and develop your skills. I now have a repertoire of programmes I can use, and I know that if I ever needed any guidance or if I’m looking to begin another diploma I could speak to my course tutor.

DEMI EDMUNDS - Nottingham, England

If I was to highlight any one thing about the school, I’d say, they are very flexible with you but the courses are not to be underestimated. They are not a tick box exercise for you to simply get your piece of paper. The unit’s really challenge you to think differently, create better and ultimately you will learn techniques and work flows that can be applied to your day job, even if you aren’t a designer.
