In Year 9, Graphics students will get the chance to explore a wide range of different areas of the subject and a wide range of techniques. Students will work with their hands producing Record Cover Sleeves and Packaging and also get the chance to use computer programmes such as Photoshop to produce their work. The course is heavily based on the use of design briefs and deadlines as you would find in industry. Students will explore areas such as Illustration (Paper puppets), Iconic Design (Record Covers) and Branding (Food Packaging/Logo Design) concluding in a final self directed project that will be written by both the tutor and the student.
