Graphic Arts

Courses approved by:

UCLan

Every day you are bombarded by graphic design messages. Whether they take the form of memorable advertisements or illustrations in a book, graphic arts are all around you.

Our Graphic Arts courses are rooted in practice rather than theory. At the centre of the department is our ‘Design Studio’, a real-life working environment. Undergraduates work on ‘live’ and realistic briefs, with industry standard deadlines, as well as liaising with clients and staff to underpin professional learning. These courses will help develop confidence and competence to communicate design solutions, through both print-based and new media graphic disciplines.

Personal and professional development will provide opportunities for students to develop a range of skills, techniques and attributes essential for successful performance in a working life environment.

Employer endorsement

Richy Leeson, Head Photographer, Ted Baker

“It was a pleasure to be able to give the undergraduates an insight into how an iconic brand like Ted Baker is marketed. As a former student myself, I know how important it is to develop the research, communication and presentation skills they’re learning on the foundation degree. Hopefully, visits such as this one offer them opportunities for networking as well as gathering industry knowledge which can only benefit their future career.”

What our students say
Alex Parry

Alex Parry, Graphic Arts - Foundation Degree (FdA)

"The best thing about being here is the environment and certainly the new University Centre. I have worked on a few live briefs that have been very exciting; liaising and communicating with external clients from pitch level to final production of the brief."
