The theme of the Graphic Design first year is fundamentals and this is shared across the core areas of design principles, visual research and exploration, professional practice, and visual culture and contextual studies.
The theme of year two at Athlone Institute of Technology is developmental design, which engages closely with content and the interdependencies of form and content. The visual word module sees a design focus centred on typography and the integration of typography and image. Visual culture and contextual studies reinforces this notion by examining the cultivation of ideas in art and design in the 20th century and its influence on contemporary graphic design.
Graduates enjoy excellent employment prospects in Ireland and overseas, and are employed in graphic design companies, advertising agencies, publishing houses, printing, the arts, the film and television industries and in teaching roles in second, PLC and third level courses.
