Communication & Media Design – Graphic Design

Graphic Design is Rich, multifaceted and encompassing a broad range of media. Graphic Design at School of Design respects and implements the foundations of formal, aesthetic and analytical knowledge vigorously. These skills a designer can sharpen while exploring the ever-changing context and function of communicating visually. This course caters to the increasing demand for trained Graphic designers in this industry. During the four year course the students learn the fundamental value of typography, imagery, infographics, grids, systems, graphical interface design and more in the course of creating everything from traditional books, posters, logos and websites to apps, interactive texts and other digital media.

Graphic Design graduates are prepared to work in any field imaginable — from education to film, television, publishing, retail and more. Alumni follow a wide range of individual paths, including running their own design studios, working for large corporations, specializing in web and interactive media, and creating everything from package design to title sequences for film and television.
