Course Description

The course features the latest design industry software. During the duration of your studies, you will access the Adobe Creative Cloud with your membership. Use all its functions and start to design your very own basic projects, then move onto more advanced skills in graphic design.

Graphic design is not just about creating art: you need to learn how to respond to a client’s brief and how to manage a broad range of skills across web, branding, print, social media and interactivity. You’ll be taught how to respond to feedback from clients and how to work to time constraints, both valuable assets in the design world.

Aspire Step Engage covers the basic design skills of type, image and colour; introducing you to the design process and its application in the development of design solutions. This course will give you an end-to-end picture of graphic design. You’ll be guided by trainers who are connected to the industry. They can inspire and guide you on your journey while you gain feedback on your work and projects, and connect with other students via OpenSpace.

When you have completed this course, you will have generated a portfolio of design solutions that demonstrates your knowledge and understanding of the design process and your ability to work within a design industry context. This portfolio is yours to keep, share and develop as you progress in your graphic design aspirations.
