University of Worcester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Overview Our broad-ranging Graphic Design course puts theory into practice, with live briefs for genuine clients from design and advertising consultancies, publishing organisations, local industries, sustainable design clients and national brands. The programme will give you exposure to commercial and professional situations as your academic knowledge and practical abilities grow. Digital designers are the gatekeepers of visual communication. Thanks to the smartphone, the entire internet now fits inside our pocket. In the digital age, there is a greater need than ever for eye-catching graphics and inspirational messages that stands out from the crowd. From a single printed advert to wayfinding graphics, graphics that inform and educate and to the complex visual language of a major company's brand, you can create compelling stories in visual language. Our course will provide you with the skills needed to create these compelling visual stories, as you pursue a design career. There are regular visits to museums and exhibitions in London, Bristol and live brief related day visits and workshops too. There is also an annual opportunity to take part in a visit to a destination in mainland Europe. Key features
