This course and the Art and Design and Textiles course are based on the same awarding code. Only one choice can be made between them. They cannot be taken together.
What will I be studying?
Students will develop an understanding of the components of graphic design, colour, typography, imagery and composition. They will do this by working with physical and/or digital materials and techniques including drawing skills, 3D modelling and a wide range of CA D software e.g. Photoshop and Illustrator. Learners will explore design disciplines, examine the work of recognised designers and apply this knowledge to their own creative outcomes. They will learn how to produce creative designs in response to a range of real world design briefs. Learners will explore working in the graphic design industry and they will design and create their own portfolio and review how the portfolio presents their skills as a graphic designer. The course is continually assessed, four 30 hour internal assessments (coursework) and a ten-hour exam. All units must be achieved to gain the award.
What can I do after wards?
This course will provide students with a sound knowledge of a range of software design packages that are used in industry. This, coupled with the practical skills that they gain, will prepare them for a career in graphics, art and design, architecture, advertising and the media and computer game design.
Each of our Year 7 & 8 will receive a FREE book! During the next two weeks students will pick their book from 17 titles. Take a look at this year's choice on the Bookbuzz website. booktrust.org.uk/wha…
