Course description

Graphic Design

Graphic Design 5M1995

This one-year course will aim to offer

is a means of communication as well as
self-expression. It is about communicating
visually in order to inform, educate, entertain
or persuade. Project work allows students
to combine these essential skills with
professional standard multimedia to explore
logo design, concept development, image
and much more. This course will provide the
introduction to careers in the graphic design
industry but will also provide an important
stepping stone to third level courses leading
to exciting careers in the computer design
area.
