Creatively explore visual language and solve challenging design briefs using industry-standard technology. Develop your understanding of effective graphic communication and prepare for a career as a professional graphic designer. This course will prepare you for work as an informed and technically skilled designer capable of creative and independent thought, with the confidence and ability to succeed in the design industry. Cambridge School of Art offers an academically rich and visually diverse environment: the perfect place to enhance your understanding of graphic communication and develop your design skills. You’ll explore many different graphic disciplines and learn how they are applied professionally, and develop your visual literacy using graphics, typography and text-image relationships. Our studio and workshop-based modules will give you experience of solving design briefs, while you receive all the theory and contextual understanding you’ll need from our other core modules on historical, contemporary and future design practice. You’ll experiment with traditional print-based solutions as well as modern commercial practices like site specific, ambient, conceptual, interactive, mobile media, app generation, graphical interface and multimedia work, and be encouraged to come up with ideas that challenge traditional notions of design or visual communication. At the end of the course you’ll celebrate your success and final year work at our annual Degree Show, and maybe even produce the publicity materials for this event, which is attended by industry professionals, design recruitment agencies, graphic artists, parents and past students.
