Design your own graphic tee, typography, logo, invitation card, poster, leaflet, packaging or branding…?

More and more people like to make their own designs. The basic design skills and aesthetic ability always benefit you whether personally or professionally. Besides introducing graphic design history, theory and printing process, the course also covers fundamentals of effective design by presenting basic principles of graphic design – line, form, colour, type and composition. 

Students will get inspiration through some non-digital-based design exercises – from brainstorming, through idea development to layout presentation. The course makes a good foundation for those students who are interested in further development in graphic design.
We also offer Introduction to Graphic Design in Cantonese.
