Skilled designers are sharp and imaginative thinkers who are able to see the world from various points of view. With that, they employ creative methods and critical thinking to design a product that inspires a particular audience toward a desired objective. A designer’s goal is often to create a visual solution for a marketing or advertising purpose, to inform and persuade through visuals.
The Graphic Design program concentrates on rigorous evaluation of how effective design is created. This involves learning the fundamentals of Graphic Design while practicing the most relevant, technical skills associated with each project our students complete.
This diploma program provides students with a strong foundation in visual communication, design principles, as well as, professional business skills. Students are assigned a wide assortment of design projects that are common to the various industries they will work in after graduation.
They will also have the opportunity to acquire real world knowledge by being immersed in an internship with an advertising agency, printing house, production company or another related entity within the region.
