Work on display: Graphic Design
Migration means something different to each of us and this year’s design offers a window into the myriad ways it is experienced, thanks to Graphic Design graduands who interrogated and developed a narrative around the issue.
The migration project, set by the International Society of Typographic Designers, is just one example of the high-quality work coming out of this year's cohort. Our final-year students are challenged to develop their own body of work from briefs set by tutors, industry partners and international competitions. The results are both eye-catching and thought-provoking.
Our Graphic Design course is industry-facing, with the goal of developing skills that will support students into graduate employment. We work with top design agencies, including Dyson and Good Creative, to ensure our students meet real world challenges informed by an awareness of sustainability, the circular economy and community. Reflecting industry practice, collaboration and interdisciplinary working are a key element of the course.
Students develop skills in typographic/editorial design, branding and marketing, motion graphics, and digital media. They can also explore options in printmaking, photography, video, interaction design, ceramics, 3D printing, and laser cutting technology. We induct our students into all of the workshop spaces and encourage them to experiment broadly with the facilities.
From the moment they first set foot inside DJCAD, our students are encouraged to be inquisitive and experiment broadly. These attributes have helped shape the work of the class of 2020 and will provide the firm foundations for highly successful careers.
