The Design for Graphic Communication (DGC) course exists to practically explore the liminal space between education and creative industry practice. Through providing vocationally informed and situated challenges the DGC course places employability at its core and facilitates an ongoing and reciprocal exchange of opinions, thoughts and beliefs between learners, industry practitioners and course tutors.

The course is a 2 year Foundation Degree Arts (FdA) followed by an optional BA Honours year which allows learners choice and flexibility with engagement with Higher Education.

Instigated through ongoing dialogue with industry partners and underpinned through continual pedagogic research, the course challenges learners with the requirement to engage with design research methods, idea generation techniques to develop synthetic thinking and places focus on the whole design process, not just the production of final outcomes. The production of project research and development documents that reflect upon the entire design cycle is central to all assignments. This enables the development of key specific and transferrable skills and facilitates reflective practice.

The DGC course helps people to become highly employable, thorough, diligent and resilient designers who approach communication design holistically, practically and pragmatically.
