Course Summary

This workshop has a practical focus, but students will also have the chance to analyse examples of different uses of graphic design.

During the workshop, students will work through enjoyable graphic design tasks that make use of their existing creativity and build new skills. Our expert graphic design teachers will guide students through fun exercises that teach new design techniques, introducing them to some of the tools used by graphic designers.

The focus of the workshop will be on using visual designs to solve problems, and students will be introduced to concepts such as visual language and typography along the way. Students will come away with a deeper appreciation for the work that goes into visual communications, and for the ideas and techniques behind the designs with which modern life is surrounded.

What will you get out of the Graphic Design Summer Course?

In addition to expanding their knowledge of graphic design, students on this workshop will develop practical skills that they will be able to build on in their own time after they leave Oxford Royale Summer Schools. As such, the workshop will be useful experience for students to discuss on their CVs and in future job applications. They will also develop transferable skills such as problem solving and teamwork, which will stand them in good stead for university and beyond.
