Students will be equipped with the ability to produce detailed, accurate and technically correct work through exploring creative design briefs thoroughly using a range of mediums.
Students will become proficient in hand rendering and using processes and techniques to create dynamic and thoughtful designs.

Students will learn how to apply these fundamentals of design onto products, marketing materials and therefore understand the world around them further. Celebrated Graphic designers will be used to help students visualise their designs and further enhance their appreciation of society and day-to-day life.
