Graphics Summer School Short Course

Course description

Contemporary graphic design includes four major areas; typography and design, art illustration, advertising and photography. This course offers students the chance to explore all four on a carousel basis with project links forged between the disciplines to create continuity and development.

There will be critiques and discussions about the work each day with a Pop Up Studio Show at the end of the course, where all participants will have a selection of work appraised by both your tutors and colleagues alike.

We hope that students will leave the course inspired and knowledgeable about this dynamic and ever-changing area of art and design. This course can be combined with Illustration Workshop, or computer-based courses in Indesign or Photoshop for students who want to build a wide-ranging portfolio.

Who should take this course?

We are looking for students with varied amounts of experience who are inquisitive, open-minded and passionate about graphic design, and who wish to increase their understanding of their subject and develop their work.
