Graphic Communication

Welcome to Graphic Communication

Graphic Design is all around all of us, every day. As technologies develop, and the internet becomes an increasingly important factor in all of our lives, graphic design becomes increasingly important. It is a massive industry which is a growth industry, with a diverse range of roles types of work. If students choose to follow this course, it would enable pupils to study either Art and Design or Graphic Communication at post-16 level. Graphic Communication is offered at St. Aloysius’ College - IC6 at AS and A2 level.

This course is suitable for students who like to experiment with a range of materials and processes and who enjoy working with a range of different areas within Graphic Design. The course requires an independent thinker, someone who can research around an idea or theme and drive their own ideas forward with support from the teacher.

The course is a specialised course and therefore will cover a range of disciplines including:

Illustration, Photography, Graphic Communication, Typography, Design for Print, Digital media and computer generated imagery. The projects/portfolio will allow students to explore ideas and processes in a personal and creative way whilst following a design process. Pupils will learn how to explore handmade techniques and to use different software to enable students to develop concepts and final products. During the course, pupils will experience visits to galleries / museums / sites.
