Who's it for?

Graphic Design is for the problem solver who’s an artist at heart. It is for those who believe you should judge a book by its cover and who choose their cereal based on how cool the box looks. Graphic design allows you to push your creative limits and explore the world's problems through design thinking and artistic skills. It suits people who not only want to explore the design process but also want to develop innovative ideas and communicate them via visual media. Most importantly, Graphic Design is about problem solving and taking responsibility for a brand's first  — and most lasting — visual impression.

Design Your Life

When you think about Graphic Design, you probably think of logos and posters. But this dynamic field is about so much more. As businesses realise the impact of branding on their bottom line, designers are becoming seen as an increasingly crucial part of the workforce of a modern economy. From social media to the layout of physical stores, design is permeating all industries, with graphic designers at the forefront. Not many careers afford you the same level of control over human perception as you walk the daily tension between form and function and translate ideas into a visual reality.

The Brand Identity

It’s never been more true that perception equals reality. While this has led to many challenges in the current era of the ‘social web’, it is an incredibly powerful mantra for the designer. Building a brand identity from the ground up gives you the ability to craft consumers’ reality and communicate the key elements of a brand or project. A picture speaks a thousand words — but a design tells a story.
