Trimester 1

The first trimester starts by instilling the elements and principles of design, colour theory, conceptual thinking and it’s processes.  We focus on hand skills, creativity, and learning to think and solve problems with and without the use of technology.  The knowledge that you learn in this trimester is the backbone upon which the following trimesters, and your future as a graphic designer, is built.

Trimester 2

Trimester 2 builds on the foundations from the previous trimester.  The correct use of design software and its uses ramps up in this trimester as we move into complex use of artwork.  We develop your conceptual thinking and start to take your ideas across multiple contexts such as print and web design.

Trimester 3

Trimester 3 brings all that you have learned together and takes your creative thinking and complexity of idea and artwork generation to the next level.  You will develop complex multi-page publications using print, web and digital technologies.  At the end of this trimester you will creative your professional print and web portfolios.
