Graphic Design

Graphic design is all around us and has the power to inform, persuade and even prompt us into action without us even realising it. The way businesses present their brand, their communications, their packaging is all created by Graphic Designers – and it’s valuable!

Whether you want to work on big advertising campaigns, or simply enjoy putting together professional communications that create the right tone and message, this industry could be for you. Attention to detail is key in this discipline alongside the ability to create stand out designs, so creativity is a must. There’s a clear career path on offer from Junior Designer right up to Creative Director and, as a skill that’s required in many industries, you will have plenty of choice in which area you want to build your future.
