This half-day study session draws inspiration from the ‘Can Graphic Design Save Your Life’ exhibition, offering students the opportunity to gain insight into the professional practice of graphic designers through hands-on activities, discussion and gallery time.

The session will explore some fundamentals of graphic design including: communicating complex ideas in non-verbal ways; conveying mood and messaging through humour or fear; using enticing visuals or subverting familiar imagery to convey messages; creating impact using typography – on its own or with images.

Working in small groups, students will be challenged to propose concepts and designs for a specific user or need, identifying the most effective language to communicate their message, developing their concepts through drawings and sketching, and ‘pitching’ their ideas to others in a concise and engaging way.
