What are graphic design courses? 

Graphic design courses, just like any other subject, are lessons intended to inspire and build your confidence in your drawing, by providing you with all the necessary knowledge and skills required to improve your digital talent. 

Throughout these courses, instructors will also be holding regular group discussions and demonstrations, during which you will be taught several things, such as: 

  • The basics of graphic design theory and application
  • How graphic design hardware is properly installed and used (e.g. pens and tablets)
  • Familiarisation with creation and editing programs

Furthermore, you will also get the opportunity to see and inquire about these aspects being applied in real-time, before trying them out for yourself! 

Why take up graphic design courses?

If you feel drawn in by Stefan Sagmeister's peculiar works or fascinated by the amusing creations of Jessica Walsh, then you should most definitely sign up to a graphic design course and learn the basics of the art. From basic editing to picture manipulation, these lessons have got you covered.

Taking up a graphic design course can bring you a step closer to a new and exciting career, or even more importantly, intensify your passion for art − besides, it’s never too late to rekindle your artistic side and start drawing again (even if it is on a screen!)

What is taught throughout these graphic design courses?

From editing in Photoshop to creating advertising layouts in InDesign, taking up a graphic design course comes with a lot of advantages that you and your talent will definitely benefit from. Throughout these lessons, certified tutors will make sure to provide you with individual attention, helping you to build confidence and improve your work through constructive criticism and tips. 

All graphic design courses are comprised of several key areas which will teach you all there is to know about the area, and together, will get you all geared up and ready with everything you will need to know! Some of the core modules that are covered include:

  1. Graphic design tools and principles
  2. Using grid systems in layout (InDesign)
  3. Basic picture editing (Photoshop)
  4. Photo manipulation
  5. Visualising and concept design
  6. Colour models and practical use of colour
  7. Typography and use of fonts
  8. Importance of canvas selection
  9. Guide to printing processes
  10. Formats for web and print

By the end of the course, you will therefore be able to: 

  • Apply learned knowledge to your work
  • Work with typography in a creative and experimental way
  • Create layouts that communicate a clear message
  • Edit and manipulate images
  • Use Adobe programmes at an introductory level
  • Work on personal projects
  • Professionally critique your work and that of others so as to improve your knowledge 
  • Improve your overall drawing
  • Been exposed to experimental projects

Even if you don’t have any drawing experience in general, you still shouldn’t feel discouraged from applying for these courses. As a matter of fact, material taught throughout will always touch upon the foundations, meaning that everybody can follow and take part.
