Description

By blurring the distinction between illustration and graphic design and allowing type and layout to play an important role, this course will take a broader view of illustration and capture the spirit and enthusiasm of the BA degree course at Central Saint Martins. While there will be the opportunity for some classic illustration/design, you will be encouraged to innovate in your ways of image-making and communication.

The course will emphasise experimentation, the generation of ideas and an awareness of your surroundings. Students will be expected to do a certain amount of work at home as well as practical classroom activities.

The work from this course could be used as part of a portfolio for application to a degree course or professional practice.
