City of Glasgow College


City Campus


This course will be delivered both online and in class on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings 6-9pm. Unless there is a significant change in Covid-19 restrictions, the course may be delivered entirely online. This course will help you develop your creative ability, gain an understanding of graphic design and encourage you to grow your own voice. You’ll tackle creative briefs from idea generation to real-world results. This is not just about learning software.

You’ll develop your creative ability and technical graphics skills, mainly through practical projects in the studio. You’ll be learning key design principles, idea generation, research methods, creative problem solving, best practice in typography, brand creation, image-making, art direction, user interface design, user experience (UIUX), and how to create industry-standard prototypes.

Throughout the course, there will be a strong focus on group discussions, peer presentations, group feedback, and some collaborative projects — preparing you to be confident and clear when presenting your design solutions.
