Course Objectives

One will learn to use colors, fonts, illustrations, and layout to visually represent a message or present a product. You will be able to design brochures, logos, various print media, and websites, along with many other things. Graphic designers find their jobs in a variety of industries and in different portfolios and levels. One can be self-employed or for an in-house staff for a business to work for internal external clients.

Most work in an office environment in front of a computer, though some work primarily by hand at a drafting table. Because graphic design often is deadline-driven, designers frequently work long hours. Most graphic designers specialize in one or two areas, such as print, web design, poster design, or corporate identity. Graphic designers are not always. As most graphic design tasks are created using   Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign this course will truly shape you as a professional designer.
