Graphic Design

We have developed our Graphic Design programs to simulate the real world

You'll receive project briefs directly from clients with visual communication, branding, advertising, marketing, digital and illustrative requirements. Our industry trained staff will ensure the design solutions you present are relevant so you develop your understanding of digital and print production, copyright legalities and running your own design business.

All units have been carefully crafted to focus heavily on the practical nature of design and replicate a real design workplace by using Mac computers and Adobe Creative Cloud software.

Our educational outcomes have been refined by industry panels consisting of local Perth studios and agencies and are cross-checked by members of the peak industry representative body, The Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA).
