Course description

Graphic Design Portfolio for 15 - 17 Year Olds

This course will provide you with a grounding in graphic design and is ideal if you wish to dip your toes in creative waters.

The main purpose is to help you build a portfolio through the exploration and experimentation of graphic design ideas.

You might be one of those people who has sometimes wondered what the term ‘thinking outside the box’ means.

Or you might be interested in developing your creativity without boundaries.

Either way, this course will leave you wanting more.

Practical tasks will be set each day, culminating in exciting visuals suitable for a portfolio.

The tasks set will challenge preconceptions about the things around you and will help you develop, explore and experiment with unusual starting points.

On this course you will:

  • be introduced to the language associated with graphic design, as well as formal elements such as colour, layout, composition and typography
  • learn to understand the importance of the audience and how design decisions are influenced by this knowledge
  • appreciate how the choices we make with regards to design and typography shape the tone of a message.

What will you gain?

By the end of the course you'll have the beginnings of a portfolio of work, one that has been produced in an informal, creative yet challenging environment.

We explored aspects of graphic design unknown to me before, created a final product that can be used in my portfolio. The teachers were helpful and let us explore and create freely, and we met and worked with a professional. It was great! I learned a lot!
