Graphic Designer Courses

A Graphic Designer creates visual material for use by their organisation or for outside clients. You’ll use a range of design software to prepare work to be used in printed form or online. Graphic Designers liaise with clients on colours, text, images and layout and will prepare materials according to a design brief. You might tailor your work for a particular audience or for the general public.

To be a Graphic Designer you’ll need to be highly creative and have excellent attention to detail. It’s important that you can follow directions and communicate well with clients and team members. You’ll often be working to a deadline so time management is crucial. Graphic Designers need to be organised because they’ll usually be working on several projects at one time.
