About this course

Develop the expertise and knowledge for a career in graphic communication. Learn core design skills in graphic design, type, motion, interaction design, illustrative and image practices. Choose to focus on a specialism or keep your interests broad as an interdisciplinary designer. Experiment with emerging and cutting-edge technological platforms alongside explorations of traditional physical media.

Based at Winchester School of Art (WSA), you’ll attend lectures and workshops run by expert creative practitioners in well-equipped design studios. You'll also be able to pitch your designs to industry professionals and visit studios, galleries and cultural spaces in London and overseas.

You'll learn visual, technical, transferable and conceptual skills through your engagement with four communities of learning.

These are:

  • design for good
  • identity and information
  • language and narrative
  • future environments

The latest industry knowledge is embedded into this graphic communication course, to help you become a career-ready designer. You’ll engage with creative professionals who will share their expertise and creative practice. 

You’ll learn about sustainable and ethical practices, civic engagement, widely used technologies and innovation and business. 

Take part in exhibitions from the WSA degree show to the London graduate showcase. We'll encourage you to enter international competitions such as the Silent Book Contest and the Student Award Scheme run by the International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD)

You can also spend a year abroad studying overseas at one of our partner universities.

Our weekly guest lecture series allows you to meet and discuss the work of exciting contemporary practitioners and creative agencies, and build important industry networks.
