Graphic Design is all around you; adverts, book covers, packaging, road signs, we could be quite literally lost without them! In Graphic Design we study all of these things and learn about how they persuade, promote and inform us as well as the manufacture of these types of product.
There is a lot to learn but it is also a very practical subject. More and more we are using ICT and other advanced technologies in this subject. We have an ICT suite that has a variety of graphics packages installed such as Photoshop and Serif Draw Plus. We also have CAM facilities for the production of high quality nets for packaging design.
In Year 10 we currently offer an NCFE Level 2 Technical Award in Graphic Design, equivalent to a GCSE. This is an exciting subject that can lead into a wide range of interesting and worthwhile careers within the creative industries.
