Diploma Specialist Course Level 4
Visual Communication is something every serious Graphic Designer should venture into if they want to become creative and unique with their designs.
This Visual Communication Specialist Course has been designed to give the ultimate, dynamic and creative development tools to our students. Graphic Design is all about Visual Communication and without the valuable skills covered in this course your design should fail to achieve what your employer or client are expecting from you.
Visual communication is all around us from everyday forms, packaging information, road signs, advertising, mobile apps, directories, photography, important information plus many more. From the minute you get up in the morning and until you return t bed at night you are faced with many different forms of visual communication. But it is all about sharing the visual information in the right way without missing out any important areas.
Maybe you have been working as a graphic design in an employed position or as a freelancer for some time now and feel you are lacking a skill that other graphic designers have achieved. We have had many individuals who have been signed up on this course by their employers to increase the skills of their employees. This has been proved to be a major success for both the employer and the employee. Even self-employed graphic designers have benefited greatly with this course and added real value to their services for their clients, plus the way in which they communicate their own businesses.
Over and above everything you will learn on this course, you will come away with a fantastic portfolio to be proud of and share with future employers or clients.
