Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr A. YATES

Demonstrate your creativity through this course.  You will select a brief and explore design ideas and solutions to fulfill the underlying intentions of the brief.  You will look to gain inspiration from a range of sources and designers and explore a range of media including digital and traditional forms to help aid the creative process.

You will learn to use Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign to design publicity for a project, event or business of your choice.  You will explore various elements of design which include typography, illustration, image-making, product branding, website design, user experience design, and animation.  By the end of the course you will be able to understand how to visually communicate your ideas to a wider audience.  There is now an option to submit your work as a digital portfolio for the external standard for those interested in animation or time-based projects.
