Our Certificate IV in Design (Graphic Design) is a foundation course that provides you with a broad understanding and experience of the graphic design discipline, including Corporate and Branding, Packaging, User Experience, Web/Interface and Environmental signage design to name but a few.

Some units concentrate on an introduction to web and interface design, while other units cover conceptual and creative thinking skills.

Graphic Designers communicate through images and words. The industry demands a mastery of typography and you will begin this journey by having fun combining digital techniques with traditional Letterpress to learn the basics. Our industry also demands drawing and sketching skills to convey concepts to both clients and fellow designers and our drawing unit lays the foundation for further development in digital illustration required in the Diploma and beyond.

Design is a process that combines elements into a workable solution whether it be a logo or an app interface and our concept development and ideation units have these foundation skills covered. Successful completion of this course will equip you with the skills needed to enter the Diploma of Graphic Design.
