Graphic Design is an art that combines visual communication and problem solving
Our graphic design and printing and graphic arts programs simulate the real world, which means you will receive project briefs directly from clients with visual communication requirements. All units focus heavily on the practical nature of design and replicate a real design workplace by using Mac computers and Adobe Creative Cloud software.
All courses are geared to industry needs and by the end of your studies, you will have developed a folio that will be your passport to future employment. Our industry trained staff will ensure the design solutions you present are relevant, as you develop an understanding of digital and print production, copyright legalities and how to run your own design business.
Our educational outcomes have been refined by industry panels consisting of local Perth studios and agencies, and are cross-checked by members of the peak industry representative body, The Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA).
