This course will provide you with a grounding in graphic design and is ideal if you wish to dip your toes in creative waters.

The main purpose is to help you build a portfolio through the exploration and experimentation of graphic design ideas.

You might be one of those people who has sometimes wondered what the term ‘thinking outside the box’ means.

Or you might be interested in developing your creativity without boundaries.

Either way, this course will leave you wanting more.

Practical tasks will be set each day, culminating in exciting visuals suitable for a portfolio.

The tasks set will challenge preconceptions about the things around you and will help you develop, explore and experiment with unusual starting points.

What will you gain?

By the end of the course you'll have the beginnings of a portfolio of work, one that has been produced in an informal, creative yet challenging environment.

Tutor Profile: Graham Burton (BA, MA, PGCE, PGCM) has been involved in design education for many years, before which he ran a successful design studio in Nottingham.

He has long believed that design is the art of taking one thing and turning it into another, and anyone who says they don’t copy or steal is an innocent or a liar.
