A career in graphic design requires intelligence, imagination and plenty of originality.

Youll be challenged to come up with creative solutions to engage, instruct and entertain all types of audiences, depending on both the business and the brief, expertly adapting your designs to suit the full range of print and multimedia platforms. 

Our course aims to prepare you to do just that. Our innovative approach helped one graduate go on to receive an Academy Award nomination in 2014 for Best Visual Effects on the Hollywood blockbuster Iron Man 3, while another has built a reputation working in the music business with NERD, Pharrell Williams and will.i.am.

Ranked among the 10 best universities in the country for Design and Crafts in the Guardian University Guide 2019, our experienced faculty, many of whom still practise design themselves, will encourage you to be tech-savvy and generate great ideas. We’ll show you how to master creative thinking, communicate effectively and stay ahead of the game by monitoring new design trends. In our spacious and dedicated studios, you will have the opportunity to create imagery, animations, movies, advertising campaigns, branding, books, stamps, installations, identities, posters, infographics, T-shirts, events, reactive media, interactive media, letterforms and websites. Students will produce proper design-platforms, together with personal and expressive portfolios that best demonstrate their creative agility and technical prowess.
