Overview

The Graphic Design programme at the University for the Creative Arts takes a practice-based look at the art of visual communication, covering both analogue and digital skills within an encouraging and inspiring environment. 

You’ll be taught by a team of practising industry professionals and researchers, with access to top-class facilities including letterpress, Risograph printer, laser-cutting, screen-printing and an Arduino maker space. 

Opportunities

While learning vital graphic design techniques and skills using high-level advanced technology and software, you'll also learn important business skills including the design process, looking for work and networking in the industry. 

Our philosophy of graphic design is thinking through making, and our course adopts a practical and hands-on approach to the ever-expanding discipline.  

You’ll participate in live briefs, talks and studio visits and meet some of the most influential names in graphic design. We have a history of winning world-renowned competitions including the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) and the International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD).
